Building Information Modeling (BIM)

Building Information Modeling, BIM, consists of the use of a shared digital representation of a built asset to facilitate design, construction and operation processes to form a reliable basis for decisions.

Ref.: ISO 19650-1:2018. Organization and digitization of information about buildings and civil engineering works, including building information modelling (BIM) – Information management using building information modelling – Part 1: Concepts and principles.

Building Information Modeling, BIM, is a collaborative work methodology for the creation and management of a construction project. Its objective is to centralize all project information in a digital information model created by all its agents.
