Building Information Modelling (BIM) integrates 3D models with rich information. BIM objects combine performance, time, scheduling, acoustics, fire rating, and many other parameters, with physical geometric attributes, in digital form. Enabling easier collaboration among construction professionals, BIM can streamline numerous project functions, from cradle to grave.
