Overview of the Building Information Modeling BIM Training:
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an intelligent 3D model-based process that gives architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC - ARCHITECTURE, ENGINEERING, and CONSTRUCTION) professionals the insight and tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct and manage buildings and infrastructure.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is increasingly getting the attention of organizations involved in architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC), as well as the owners and operators of buildings (facility managers and real estate managers). In this context, BIM is a digital model representing the physical, technical, and functional characteristics of a building. BIM is a shared data and knowledge platform for all stakeholders involved and provides a basis for decision making during the entire lifecycle of a building:
Different stakeholders at different phases of the lifecycle of a building add, query, or edit information in the Building Information Model to support their own function and share this information with other stakeholders.
Building Information Modeling BIM course is much more than a 3D CAD drawing representing a floor plan or construction detail. BIM benefits include data of interest to many stakeholders during the full lifecycle of the building, such as buyers, owners, occupants, facility and real estate managers, safety inspectors, lawyers, and emergency planners. BIM can also support the creation of surrounding processes, including geographical analyses, urban planning, and landscaping.
