What is BIM in Construction?
Building Information Modeling is a chain of processes, including 3D modeling which has revolutionised the way that projects operate from start to finish. BIM has functions that allow a project to be planned, designed and managed. CAD (Computer-Aided Design) is different to BIM. This is because BIM is not just used for the creation of designs. It is used to monitor all of the processes of a project. Furthermore, BIM is often used to make digital representations of the functional and physical aspects of a project with a variety of computer files.
BIM is a fairly new concept. It is used for a variety of different infrastructure projects in the construction industry. For example, it is used for the operating and constructing of railways, bridges, tunnels and water systems.
BIM courses are particularly useful in the field of construction management. Within this field employees and employers have to find solutions for maintaining a budget, responding to time constraints and reacting to issues. Therefore BIM can be used to maintain budgets, estimate the duration of particular activities and find errors in design work. For example, BIM is known for its excellent ability to carry out clash detection. This ensures that problems are identified early in the project. In turn, this avoids significant changes that have to be made later on.
There are a number of other useful things that BIM can bring to a project. Its popularity is growing and it is likely to continue developing. We will see developments and changes with BIM which increase the efficiency of projects further.
