The value of BIM for connecting design insights

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an intelligent model-based design process, providing a critical foundation to help designers, builders and owners gain a competitive advantage with the enhanced ability to access, share and use enormous amounts of information throughout the lifecycle of buildings and infrastructure.

Dodge Data and Analytics has recently performed a research focusing on using BIM processes to create more well-reasoned designs and the ability to then analyze design options to determine the best solution; including analysis of building performances starting in the conceptual stage, comparing options not only to each other but also against industry benchmarks, and leveraging computational design algorithms to shed light on the impact of specific choices.

You can watch this video as Stephen Jones, Product Specialist at Dodge Data and Analytics, discusses how design professionals are achieving the “best possible”, as opposed to the “best practical” design solutions by leveraging:

  • BIM
  • Computational Design
  • Generative Design
  • Reality Capture
