Let’s be clear about BIMBIM is a processIt holds vastly moreinformation than justthe 3D geometry.BIM is global team workIt lets all users workcollaboratively, in real time.The “I” is central to BIMBIM is all about information;how it‟s captured and howit‟s made available.So how to describe BIM?Part people. Part process.Part software. Andall collaboration.
The BIM boom:2,600% growth in three yearsIn 2009, less than 10,000BIM model files werebeing managed on theAconex system. By late2012, there were morethan 270,000 – some2,600% growth.The size of the modelshas also nearly doubledover the past five years.
