Building Information Modelling is a management process.
BIM is not a technology or the creation of a 3D model. It is the management process underpinned by collaboration using structured and shareable information.
A Building Information Model is about information.
It relates to a building or infrastructure asset rich in graphical and non-graphical information and created with reference to a 3D model.
Value arises by understanding how often, and for how many uses, information can be utilised.
We assist our clients simplify the delivery of their built environment assets by supporting the creation, deployment and management of BIM and information management strategies covering the entire life cycle.
