Building Information Modelling (BIM)

The complete process of creating and managing information for a constructed asset is known as building information modelling. Architects, engineers, and construction companies use building information modelling (BIM) to drive digital transformation. BIM services integrate structured, multi-disciplinary data using an intelligent model and a cloud platform to create a digital representation of an asset through its life-cycle, from planning and design to construction and operations. According to the NBS National BIM Report 2019, “almost two-thirds of those who have adopted BIM believe they have done so successfully.”

Building Information Modeling is a smart 3D model-based method that equips architects, engineers, and construction professionals with the knowledge and tools they need to more efficiently plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure. Designers create digital 3D models with data on physical and functional features using BIM. The data in a model provides the design features and establishes behaviour and links between model components. Every view is updated when an element in a model is modified, with the new modification visible in section, elevation, and sheet views. Complex analysis and simulations, as well as realistic renderings, can be done using the information. BMI is thus a novel method for planning various kinds of construction projects.

Designers, installers, and cost consultants may now obtain a full perspective of the actual aspects of a construction project thanks to the advancement of software from old to current BIM technology. The value of BIM is that it allows professionals to cooperate on coordinated models, providing everyone with a greater understanding of how their work fits into the larger project and, as a result, allowing them to work more efficiently. The impact of BIM on a company’s business practices and technology tools is unavoidable. The company should be aware of how its organization’s business, procedures, and technology will change as they transition to BIM for the better.

A closer look

Architects, software developers, engineers, management consultants, and designers make up the BIM Modeling Services team. This team provides holistic solutions to problems while bringing a unique perspective to the table.

In February 2016, Infrastructure Australia proposed that governments should mandate the use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) for the design of large-scale complex infrastructure projects. A mandatory rollout of BIM can be supported by the Australian Government commissioning the Australasian Procurement and Construction Council to develop appropriate guidance for adopting and using BIM, as well as common standards and protocols to adhere to when implementing BIM.

BIM is a natural extension of Design Management Services (DMS) as it provides knowledge and techniques for planning, designing, constructing, and managing buildings and infrastructure to AEC professionals. BIM allows for simple interchange, flexibility, and customization. By saving time and facilitating the successful completion of the project, it ensures the best return on investments.


BIM modelling features include the ability to test building designs for cost, site feasibility, and performance analysis, as well as the ability to quickly correct design aspects based on data analysis.

Here are a few benefits of BIM:

  1. Three-dimensional visualization of difficult concepts;
  2. Provide real-time cost, schedule, and project timetable analyses and updates;
  3. Improve project coordination and identify any disagreements or clashes ahead of time.
  4. Significantly boost workflow and productivity;
  5. Minimize hazards as soon as possible;
  6. Ensure data standards are followed;
  7. Link data to geometry and manage data throughout the project’s lifetime.
