Building Information Modelling (BIM)
3D modeling for coordination of M&E services has been adopted to minimize clashes of services with building structure that cause wastage of materials and time. BIM is used to design and document building and infrastructure designs. The model can be used for analysis to explore design options and to create visualization that help stakeholders understand what the building will look like before it is built. The model is then used to generate the design documentation for construction.
BIM not only allows design and construction team to work more efficiently, but it allows them to capture the data they create during the process to benefits operations and maintenance activities.
