BIM (Building Information Modeling) is a collaborative process for creating a virtual 3D prototype of any construction project, including the building-specific properties (physical or functional properties). With the help of this modeling, all relevant data, possible difficulties as well as possible solutions are therefore already available before the first construction activity.
The BIM method is based on a three-dimensional building model, which is often supplemented with further sub-models, depending on construction sections, floors, etc.. The model provides the project participants with access to a common database for planning, realization and maintenance of the construction project.
BIM is frequently used in the construction industry in the area of construction site monitoring or building modernization In addition, facility management measures can also be identified at an early stage.
