Building Information Modeling (BIM) is the process of generating and managing building data during a project’s lifecycle from conception through design and construction to its operation.
BIM strengthens collaboration by allowing all members of the design team to accurately add to shared models which contain a database of information about the project and the objects used to create it. This is an accurate representation of how a building looks and functions.
The benefits of using BIM are:
•[tab]Immediate 3D visualization
•[tab]Improved coordination and resolution of conflicts
•[tab]The ability to extract quantities
•[tab]Verification of constructability
•[tab]Scheduling production on site
•[tab]Operation and maintenance
BIM involves representing a design as objects, which carry the geometry, relationships and attributes. It utilizes three-dimensional, real-time, parametric modeling software for its creation.
BIM encompasses building geometry, spatial relationships, geographic information quantities and properties of all the building components. BIM is a process by virtually constructing the building on the computer prior to construction.
BIM not only provides us with a virtual representation of our projects at all stages, and there is the possibility of tracking and analysing the design, extracting construction and operational information that is critical to the success of the project. Access to this information creates valuable insight across the building lifecycles and can help improve project management performance.
BIM is a multidimensional model where there is a virtually unlimited amount of visual and non-visual parametric information related to the project can be added. This information can then be shown graphically and noted in the documents generated. As the project is developed increasing amounts of intelligence are added to each model element. This intelligence is captured and stored in the model and can be utilized for an infinite number of purposes.
How we work with BIM
schmidt hammer lassen architects has worked with BIM since 2007 and now executes the majority of all our large projects with the use of BIM.
Skill building and knowledge sharing
Developing employees’ skills at schmidt hammer lassen has focus internally with workshops in Revit Architecture and other software packages and experience, as well as through the experience gained from completed projects.
schmidt hammer lassen architect’s BIM Managers make presentations and sit on panels at both national and international conferences and seminars. Therefore, schmidt hammer lassen has a large BIM network such as the BIM Aarhus (www.bimaarhus.dk) networking group.
