BIM as the Future Standard in Elaboration of Building


CITA BIM Gathering 2015, November 12th -13th 2015


“BIM (Building Information Modelling) is both a tool and a process, and one cannot realistically exist without the other” [1]. It creates the digital models of the building objects in conjunction with all the other design branches that are mutually coordinated and linked. It downsizes the amount of the design files (e.g. one file per one design branch), eliminates errors and reveals any design collisions (e.g. between the branches), even in the preliminary stage of the project. “The process of BIM generates information models and their associated information that are used throughout the lifecycle of building/infrastructure facilities or assets”.

Another definition of BIM is given by National Institute of Building Sciences – it is defined as “a digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a facility” [3] that acts as a “shared knowledge resource for information about a facility forming reliable basis for decisions during its life cycle from inception onward” [4]. It is also the design tool that enables implementation of information to programmable environment, describing in an unambiguous way the digital model (or its part) which is internally linked between the particular design views. The user can further develop the BIM environment and its parametric nature through introduction of the mathematic formulae into the programme components that comprise the design content.
