What is BIM?

Building Information Management (BIM) involves the use of information-rich 3D models and their data collaboratively, improving the quality and exchange of information throughout the design, construction, and post-construction phases. Put simply, BIM requires the delivery of the correct data, to the relevant people, at the right time, in the appropriate format.

In response to the successful use of UK and International BIM standards, an increasing number of companies in both public and private sectors are adopting the BIM process.
