Building Information Modelling
Building information modelling is a process for combining information and technology to create a digital representation of a project that integrates data from many different sources.
It relates to creating, managing and sharing information over the entire life-cycle of a construction project, with the aim to improve efficiency and communication amongst all contractors working on a project.
This process provides significant cost savings at all stages of the projects life cycle. The advantages have been realised and adopted by the private sector who recognize the advantages of a common information platform. It’s a fast growing platform/tool for coordination in large scale projects.
