Building Information Management

Building Information Management | BIM updated | Scoop.it

For the Architect and Engineer, the preoccupation is often with the mode of production and quality of the model: how does one ensure that the model accurately reflects the design requirements? What level of detail should be modelled? and how does one account for elements that are not modelled? However, this is really just the tip of the pyramid!

BIM = Better information mobility?

BIM = Better information mobility? | BIM updated | Scoop.it

A US survey suggests growing benefits of mobile information, but its respondents weren’t enthusing about mobile access to digital models. At the Bentley Systems Year in Infrastructure conference in London this week, information mobility has been a recurring theme (indeed, BIM has even been verbally re-engineered to become ‘better information mobility’), and its not just about mobile devices but about the whole challenge of enabling collaboration by connecting people and sharing data from a multitude of different applications, operating systems and devices...

Sharing – a model solution

There is a change afoot in construction. It’s not an architectural thing or an engineering thing. Building information modeling (BIM) is both. And more. It is a software that allows different professionals to work together on the same project.

“BIM is a leap forward,” says Melbourne architect Rowan Opat. “You are drawing lines but the lines have meaning. They have attributes. When you draw a wall, that is a wall. The [software] knows a wall is a wall, a floor is floor, a duct is a duct and a roof is a roof, a door is a door.”

Can BIM Standards Work in Construction?

Are we ready for BIM (building information modeling) standards? Some in the construction market believe the idea is definitely long overdue. As the processes and technologies associated with BIM aim to help increase efficiency on a construction project, allowing multiple parties access to project information, the idea with standards is to make the technology even more useful for workers.
