Calculation of precast elements as an introduction to BIM

Building Information Modelling – BIM


BIM is the integrated process of planning, building and managing, supported by a consistent digital building model which is accessible to everyone and which integrates all geometrical and descriptive information in a component-oriented way. The basis of the process is a 5D model which, in addition to the 3D geometry, contains the component costs as the fourth dimension and the time flows as the fifth. BIM is an international trend in the building industry. In building construction in particular, appropriate models are used for various tasks such as calculation, visualisation and status report. A number of software producers offer tools for the creation and evaluation of BIM models. The use of BIM is compulsory in some countries.
