How Do BIM Services Work?

Building Information Modeling, more popularly known as BIM, involves a process that creates and manages information on construction and engineering projects across various project lifecycles. It provides the digital description of all the parts of a building. Creating a detailed and accurate BIM model during the project lifecycle enables construction contractors to make changes in order to optimize the design prior to installation and fit-out.

Why do you need BIM services?

BIM contains all the pieces of information on different aspects of a building. Professional BIM services make it easier to integrate various aspects of the building’s design more effectively. It reduces the risks of discrepancies in the building’s design and construction, thus also eliminating potential costly fabrication and installation re-works.

What do BIM services include?

BIM specialists make it easier for construction contractors to illustrate an entire building digitally. From basement level up to and including its roof, you can see every part of the building in detail. The technician will develop a 3D digital blueprint keeping the BIM disciplines and standards in mind. This will include a step-by-step process of how to go about constructing the building via a set of construction issue drawings and details, thus making it easier for contractors to complete their projects accurately and to programme.

BIM services are a combination of many things, such as:

  • Information and design of a specific building.
  • Properties of the building, such as thermal performance.
  • Geometric representation of the building, including its physical characteristics.
  • Visualizing the building to give it a recognizable appearance.

BIM has been widely adopted across various industries, such as civil engineering, structural engineering and building design & construction. The latter includes disciplines such as architecture and mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) building services.

This technology is the future of long-term facility management and construction design. Most importantly, many governments have already approved this technology so that the real estate industry can flourish. Therefore, if you need to see how your building will look after full construction, you can hire a BIM specialist to assist you at every stage of the design and construction process.
