BIM (Building Information Model)

BIM is a process to create and manage information on a building project across its lifecycle. BIM allows building disciplines and professionals to work simultaneously on the same project. This makes projects easier and saves costs on construction, maintenance, renovation and management. BIM is no longer just an option and its use is mandatory in large public projects in many countries.
