BIM is the acronym for “Building Information Modelling”.
It is neither a product nor a software, but an “information container” into which graphics (drawings) and technical characteristics (technical sheets) for the object can be input.
BIM thus represents a collaborative design method that optimises planning, construction and management of buildings, as it allows the information needed for every phase of planning to be integrated in a single model. For this reason it can be used by system designers, structural engineers, architects, builders, installation technicians, testers, etc.
- The actions of all stakeholders are concentrated in a single process, even simultaneously
- Unexpected factors (costs) can be foreseen, optimising project management
- Presents the figure of the BIM Manager, who validates processes and parameters
- Allows traceability of all components, processes and validations, down to the smallest details
- Allows inconsistencies to be checked during the design phase
- Lasts throughout the working life of the installation, from design all the way to demolition
