What is BIM?

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is an intelligent 3D model-based process that equips architecture, engineering, and construction professionals with the insight and tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure.

“The beauty of BIM is that we can get rid of the walls between design, engineering, and construction. We have to get the governments to understand and contracts to include shared risk all through the project. We’re trying to educate people, because that’s where we’re going to really unlock the value of BIM.”

– Neil Evans, director, Strategy and Business Development, SMEC (Australia)

BUILDING

Make more informed design decisions, build more efficiently and cost-effectively, and manage and maintain buildings with greater ease using BIM.

CONSTRUCTION

Reduce waste and increase profit margins with tools that help contractors and subcontractors plan better, produce results faster, and finish projects on budget.

INFRASTRUCTURE

Use BIM in any type of civil infrastructure project to create visualisations for stakeholder approval, develop 3D models to identify problems before hand-off, and deliver projects on time and on budget.

PLANT

Start projects faster, collaborate across disciplines, and develop intelligent 3D models for both the inside and outside of industrial buildings and plants.

“Now, we have more insight and control over costs during every stage of design. We’ve also been able to reduce or eliminate RFIs (requests for information) and change orders thanks to BIM.”

– Sarah Dreger, Director, virtual design and construction

“The efficiencies and speed I’ve gained by using BIM allow me to be competitive with my fees and spend more time on design.”

– Davey McEathron, Principal, Davey McEathron Architecture
