BUILDING INFORMATION MANAGEMENT
The construction sector is facing more and more constraints for the realization of projects: times are shortening, quality must be constantly improved and budgets are often tight. This is generally due to a very fragmented process, communication problems, and an increasing degree of technical aspects. The problem can be prevented and solved also thanks to BIM, focusing on better organization of the construction process and offering a collaboration based on the use of digital models to be exchanged between projects.
The acronym BIM increasingly refers to Building Information Management, in other words to the management and exchange of information. Depending on the possibilities and advantages that offer, BIM can be implemented on different strategies. It can be used exclusively to produce 3D building models and calculate quantities of materials. Extensively, BIM can also be used to anticipate errors and correct them directly on the computer and no longer on site.
BIM, is a method that allows data to be exchanged between the different actors involved in a construction project. Analyzes-controls-visualizations are carried out very early in the study of a project so that the exchange of information anticipates the difficulties often encountered during the execution phase. With continuously updated digital models, construction costs are better controlled and the quality of the building improved already at an early stage before the costs of the modifications have too much impact.
BIM is therefore not an objective in itself, but a collaborative and efficient working method requiring the commitment of all involved actors of the project development.
