While adopting BIM for the first time may involve a new capital expenditure, the promise of BIM is that, over time, it reduces the overall lifecycle cost of a building. Furthermore, after BIM is used for a first project, the necessary tools, procedures and know-how will be already in place for the next project. Good practises and co-operation with other stakeholders come as a standard in all projects.
BIM enables the 3D model to develop during the lifecycle of the building. As the project progresses, the linked data in the model grows and the stakeholders can access to data that is relevant for each specific phase – Design, Procurement, Construction, Facility Management. The end-goal is a building that meets the needs of the people using it. This white paper explores these four areas in detail. Download it to learn more!
