Building Information Modeling (BIM) can be a valuable tool in the hands of anyone who works in construction.There’s no doubt that the concept of collaborative working is becoming more and more popular over the years.
In BIM a building is first built digitally before it is implemented as a real building. With BIM, structures are portrayed with all of their relevant information throughout their entire life cycle by means of a digital building model. The detailed building model is enriched with information from all project participants throughout the planning process, supporting better planning, execution and subsequent management of the building.
BIM makes it possible to carry out building projects faster, more cost effectively and on a timely basis. That’s why it’s critical for all construction parts to be aware of the different BIM maturity levels. Before we go further with that, it would really be useful to try to define what BIM actually means.
