Building Information Modelling (BIM): What is it used for?

By now, we’ve all heard the hype about #BIM (Building Information Modelling). But what is BIM actually used for?

Simply put, BIM is used to design and document building and infrastructure designs. We have previously had an in-depth explanation and discussion about what BIM actually is: A 3D model is created to capture every detail of the building and infrastructure. This model can be used to:
  • Analyse and explore design options
  • Optimise designs for performance
  • Create visualisations (like photorealistic renderings, animation or even Virtual Reality)
  • Communicate between stakeholders using a common and shared data set
  • Generate design documentation for construction


Depending on the maturity of BIM implementation, software and project information is increasingly becoming live, cloud-based, interoperable and platform-agnostic.

Do you use BIM for your projects? Has it changed your work and had an impact, and if so, how? Comment below. We would love to hear from you.
