What is BIM?
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is the process of generating and managing building data during its life cycle
Typically it uses three-dimensional, real-time, dynamic building modeling software to increase productivity in building design and construction.The process produces the Building Information Model (also abbreviated BIM), which encompasses building geometry, spatial relationships, geographic information, and quantities and properties of building components.
BIM can be used to demonstrate the entire building life cycle, including the processes of construction and facility operation. Quantities and shared properties of materials can be extracted easily. Scopes of work can be isolated and defined. Systems, assemblies and sequences can be shown in a relative scale with the entire facility or group of facilities.
Advantages of BIM!
- Improved visualization
- Improved productivity due to easy retrieval of information
- Increased coordination of construction documents
- Embedding and linking of vital information such as vendors for specific materials, location of details and quantities required for estimation and tendering
- Increased speed of delivery
- Reduced costs
Software for BIM
Mechanical, Electrical & Plumbing (MEP) package is one of the main utilities in designing building. Roots Enviro System is equipped with Ventilation module from MagiCAD.
