BUILDING INFORMATION MODELING
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.
BIM is changing the construction industry
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.
