What is Business Information Modelling?

BIM is an acronym for Building Information Modelling.  BIM can be summarised as a methodology which is fundamentally concerned with the collation and management of information relating to a construction project, manipulated through a 3D awareness of inter-relationships between objects and their associated data. In practical terms, what this means is that a virtual building model is developed and information is collated from manufacturers or through the traditional decision-making process of design.

This model is analysed, tweaked, tested and revised, before a full-scale replica is built on site. So we build everything twice – once in the virtual world and then again in the real world. Technically, BIM methodology could be applied using a pencil and a spreadsheet application, and it could equally apply to road, rail and infrastructure, or in fact to the management and maintenance of existing facilities. BIM has to relate to a Building project. It should be rich in non-graphical Information; and it should be built with reference to a 3D Model
