What is BIM?

BIM (Building Information Modeling) is the digital working method for the building industry. BIM adds value by enabling people, processes and tools to work together effectively over the entire life cycle of a building. A building project therefore has greater transparency and quality, as well as more reliable costs and schedules.

Good reasons for BIM

Via the central building model (BIM coordination model), the BIM working method permits the cross-disciplinary planning, construction and operation of buildings. With BIM software, all relevant information is merged and then analyzed. Inconsistencies and errors are identified immediately and can be eliminated in the planning phase. This increases planning quality, which pays off in the building process and in the operational phase.

  • All those involved access the same information.
  • Important decisions can be made earlier.
  • The building process runs more quickly and smoothly.
