Building Information Modeling (BIM)

Through BIM, architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) professionals can have better project coordination and collaboration with stakeholders, efficient workflows, 3D visualizations, and resulting improved project outcomes are just some of the benefits of using BIM processes.

What is BIM?

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an intelligent 3D model-based process that gives architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) professionals the insight and tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure?
