That BIM definition… again…gBuilding information modelling (BIM) is the process of generating andBuilding information modelling (BIM) is the process of generating andmanaging building data during the life cycle of the built structure.It uses three-dimensional, real-time, dynamic building modelling software toincrease productivity in building design, construction and occupation.The process produces the building information model (also abbreviatedBIM) which encompasses building geometry spatial relationshipsBIM), which encompasses building geometry, spatial relationships,geographic information, quantities and properties of building componentsand spaces.Many forms of analysis can then be performed on this digital prototypebefore it is actually physically built in its environment at great cost.
