What is bim

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a step closer to our natural way of thinking. Our memories are built of images that our mind captures in 3D combining them with the information about the date, colors, taste, smell and people. Our thought is a 3D image with a context.

BIM is a method for optimizing the design, execution and operation of building structures. The basis of BIM is formed by a 3D computer model which can be enhanced by adding further information, such as on time, costs, utilization. The ‘I’ which stands for Information in BIM, can be used differently by different project partners. As a result, the project produces a coordinated set of information-rich BIM models which can be used throughout the project lifecycle. Thus, BIM is not a software package, it is a method of working, collaborating, designing, managing, constructing and operating.

Accepted all over the world by different institutions and practitioners, the definition of BIM as defined by US National BIM Standards Committee (NBIMS) is, “Building Information Modeling is digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a facility creating a shared knowledge resource for information about it forming a reliable basis for decisions during its life cycle, from earliest conception to demolition.”

BIM is an incredible concept which allows building the facility first virtually and then physically. This way, the project partners can perceive the project and evaluate its performance before implementing it. Resolving coordination issues at a very early stage in the project, results in significant savings of time, cost and energy. With enhanced scheduling, estimating and facility management abilities, a whole new world of opportunity for BIM has opened.

Componens of bim

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is one of the significant technological advancements that architecture, engineering and construction (A/E/C) industry has seen since a decade. But it is vital to understand that BIM is far more than a suite of software; it is a process of aligning the technology with people, process, policy and management.

These five components of BIM are the foundation of HOCHTIEF ViCon’s core services.

  1. Process

The need for increased collaboration among project partners demands fundamental changes in the way knowledge is shared, communicated, delivered and managed. Thus, the first essential component to a successful BIM implementation is to define the right business processes for a BIM-supported construction project.

  1. Policy

Without a set of clearly defined standards and technical specifications, the information generated using BIM technology cannot be applied effectively. We believe that well-defined policies should form the basis for 3D model development and exchange. BIM-related specifications must be integrated into the project guidelines and contracts from the earliest planning stages onward.

  1. People

Abilities of the people to perform at every step of the implementation process will affect the possibilities of achieving the project’s BIM goal. Thus, providing right amount of training, support and opportunities to people in the BIM team is a key for a long-term success of BIM implementation program.

  1. Technology

Choosing the right set of tools in a BIM process, can be difficult to get right. Elements such as hardware, software and data exchange and storage processes have to be configured properly, monitored constantly and adjusted as necessary to fit with evolving project parameters and practice standards.

  1. BIM Manager

Supporting these is the management component, which enables the other four components to work in unison. The BIM Manager identifies the project’s requirements across these four core components.

Bim benefit

Introducing BIM as your standard tool lets you improve your planning, construction and operating processes in terms of costs, time, quality and planning certainty. This, in turn, increases efficiency and reduces risks.
BIM provides numerous benefits to your project business:

  • • Increased planning certainty and more transparent processes
  • • BIM makes complex projects and increasing requirements manageable
  • • Improved project communication and project marketing
  • • Direct and consistent availability of up-to-date and relevant data
  • • Consistently high quality by standardized modes of operation
  • • Reduced execution times
  • • Fewer risks in construction and lower construction costs
  • • Increased pre-fabrication level
  • • Reuse of information for building operation
