Study Notes

Building Information Modeling (BIM)

  • BIM is a digital representation of the physical and functional characteristics of a building or infrastructure project.

Physical Infrastructures

  • BIM software can be used to plan, design, construct, operate, and maintain various physical infrastructures, including:
    • Buildings
    • Roads
    • Bridges
    • Tunnels
    • Rail and transit systems
    • Airports
    • Seaports
    • Water treatment and wastewater management systems

History of BIM

  • The term "Building Information Modeling" (BIM) became an agreed-upon term in 2002.

BIM Process

  • The BIM process is supported by:
    • Data standards
    • Interoperability standards
    • Collaborative working methodologies
    • A range of software tools and platforms

Development and Adoption of BIM

  • The development of standards and the adoption of BIM have progressed through:
    • The publication of the UK Government's BIM Strategy in 2011
    • The establishment of the UK BIM Task Group in 2011
    • The launch of the Nibs (National Institute of Building Sciences) BIM Standards in 2006
    • The development of industry-specific standards and guidelines

Test your knowledge about Building Information Modeling (BIM) and its role in the generation and management of digital representations of physical spaces. This quiz covers tools, technologies, contracts, and building information models (BIMs).
