Although based on conventional 3D modeling techniques, BIM is the “intelligent” evolution of the classic 3D model.
The BIM model not only includes simple geometric information on construction elements and components, but also all documents and data necessary for the technical and economic management of the project.
During the last 30 years, design (in its many aspects: architectural, engineering, installation, landscape, etc.) has experienced a real revolution in the construction industry, and new approaches as well as innovative operative tools have been developed. From computer-aided design (at first in 2D and later in 3D) to parametric design for objects (at first at a quantitative and later qualitative level), innovations have brought about a deep change in the way of conceiving a building project, its execution and its management stages.
The result is the BIM, Building Information Modeling that can be shortly defined as an integrated model for construction work (building, infrastructure, etc.), which includes all data covering all aspects of its creation; in practice it is a completely new approach to the execution and management of construction work. Here architectural, structural and installation designs, features and properties of materials, components and systems, planning of execution stages, schedules and execution costs, as well as maintenance works are regarded as a whole, as parts of a single process where the entire product life is taken into consideration to reduce mistakes and optimize execution, checking and monitoring.
STR Vision CPM is a full BIM software: it integrates the 3D model project with information about tools, facilities, human resources and all the parts you need in order to complete the job. You can control and manage the technical and economic information, both forecast and consumptive data, during all the project phases.
