A Building Information Model is a kind of intelligent, 3D model for Building. This allows everyone involved in the building lifecycle – Owners, Developers, Architects, Engineers, and Contractors, – to seamlessly manage and share information.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) accommodates many of the functions needed to model the lifecycle of a building, providing the basis for new construction capabilities and changes in the roles and relationships among a project stakeholders. it can smoothly facilitates an integrated design and construction process that results in better quality buildings at lower cost and reduced project duration.
BIM produces construction documents that resemble those created by 2D CAD Drafting, but are done much faster and contain information about structure, quantities, materials and other data that can be used in both — Construction and Management of a building. Designers can analyze the building design in detail and locate human errors, if any by BIM implementation.
BIM provides adequate information for building performance analysis and evaluation, which is of vital importance for Sustainable Building Design. in a same time it produces accurate and extremely reliable information about the Building structure, system and materials used, it can generate energy efficiency, daylighting enabling green building design and aspects criteria.
