Building Information Modelling (BIM) delivers benefits throughout the building project lifecycle. Make better design decisions, build more efficiently, and manage and maintain building portfolios more effectively.

Architecture

BIM technology supports architects throughout the lifecycle of design. Explore how BIM for architecture helps you:

  • Take your design from concept to reality with improved quality and efficiency
  • Gain a competitive edge to grow your business
  • Realize your creative vision with innovative technology solutions that enable impactful design

BIM 101

This introductory video goes over the basics of Building Information Modeling, or BIM. Learn what BIM is and how it can help your architecture firm.

Enhancing Profitability With BIM

BIM does more than merely offer 3D models. After all, profitability is tied to a margin, and BIM can help keep building costs from cutting into your margin. Detecting problems early on, increasing collaboration, and enhancing coordination are all ways BIM can save you money. Watch the video now to see how BIM can impact your bottom line.

Working Better Together: Improved Collaboration With BIM

Building projects often require multiple disciplines to work together. That’s just one reason why so many architectural firms rely on BIM. After all, better collaboration helps teams address clashes in the design phase and facilitate good communication before conflicts can arise. Watch the video to find out how.

Structure

Using BIM enables structural engineers, detailers, and fabricators to improve multidiscipline coordination of structural design documentation, minimize errors, and streamline collaboration between teams. Integrated structural design software tools support the project delivery process from structural design and engineering to detailing, fabrication, and installation.

  • Streamline structural fabrication with BIM workflows
  • BIM improves collaboration across project delivery—from structural engineering to installation
  • Reach optimal structural designs efficiently with BIM

BIM for building owners and managers

BIM for owners delivers demonstrable value from design, through construction, and into operations. Bring predictability into the design and construction process, reduce building lifecycle costs, and better manage building portfolios.

  • Achieve higher quality building designs
  • Seamlessly transition projects from construction to operations
  • Use BIM data to better maintain and manage building operations
