BIM: Building Information Modeling

In our last blog we talked about the importance and impact of the state-of-the-art technologies of the building industry as such, and today we will look closer into one of the most interesting technologies of 2016; BIM or Building Information Modeling.

What do we mean when we speak about BIM? BIM is a technology creating and collecting all the data on a building during its entire life cycle. It is, in fact, a database of distinct information or data files on buildings with the aim to serve as the only platform for the management of buildings and for all the coordination of activities of designers, architects, engineers of constructions and infrastructure, structural designers and constructors, as well as building managers and consequently also investors. BIM uses a sole file format allowing coordination in such extent through an installed software. The objective of the software is not schedule everything within one platform, from the pilot project intention, plan, through design, infrastructure, connection to engineering utilities, to the minute details; it is rather simple and at the same time thoroughly elaborate. The building is designed, constructed and managed under one system. The investors fully supervise the processes and have an unlimited access to it.

Time, as well as cost savings, become one of the biggest benefits of BIM and these not only during creating a complex project documentation for a building construction. Of course, in the practice, we speak about the essential simplification of mutual coordination of different participants of the given project. It is simply such a sophisticated and modern system that in some countries the transition to this system becomes compulsory. For example, building companies in Great Britain or the USA must comply with conditions allowing them to use the BIM method, if necessary.

A so-called system playfulness and its absolute “user-friendly experience” makes another from its numerous advantages. In other words, BIM tries to be an interesting and attractive system also for young people whose position to any engagement in the building industry is often neutral. This could finally change thanks to BIM and as a consequence, it might solve a relative shortage of experienced specialists who have been leaving building industry jobs since 2009 due to the economic crisis.

If we speak about the contemporary situation, BIM gets applied in large-scale long-term projects. Nevertheless, experts predict that the system will find its was also to smaller-scaled and “more common” building projects, and that, in time, the system becomes the pillar for all building businesses. Structural engineering will thus soon experience a new trend; BIM.
