Building Information Model (BIM)

Integrated information on the entire lifecycle of a building

A Building Information Model (BIM) is a digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a facility.  As such it serves as a shared knowledge resource for information about a facility forming a reliable basis for decisions during its life-cycle from inception onward. 

An open standards based repository of information for the facility owner/operator to use and maintain throughout the life-cycle of a facility. Today nearly every piece of information that an owner needs about a facility throughout its life is available electronically. We currently don't have the infrastructure in place to capture, organize and mine that information. allowing the whole supply chain to interact around a centralised BIM.
