BUILDING INFORMATION MODELLING (BIM)

An advanced solution for parametrically representing a system’s physical and functional properties in a building or plant.

An integrated design system for optical quality by design

BIM (Building Information Modelling) is a parametric and digital method for representing the physical properties and functionalities of a system and constitutes a design method that enables integrating, optimising and updating its constitutive elements throughout its designed life cycle.

It can be perfectly applied in both an existing context and a new construction, because it simplifies facilities and utilities integration within a three dimensional and parametric model. BIM enables backtracking and changing of a series of cognitive attributes at any time; for example geometric and physical features, maintenance interventions, energy performance and electrical requirements for heating and cooling.

BIM ADVANTAGES

Due to the advantages provided in terms of design quality and integration, the BIM method is a mandatory requisite for projects that might require community financing as defined in the Directive on Public Procurement (DPP) approved by the European Parliament.

Design Display

Constructing a 3D model with extremely high adhesion to the final construction.

Design Options

The highest design quality standard for any aspect.

Clash Detection

Reduced implementation times and changes by subcontractors.

Constructability Review

Effective reviews of the implementation based on defined parameters.

Communication
Collaboration

Greater integration of the designers' skills and the different teams.

How to build a parametric model of a system design.

A parametric model enables maintaining of control during all the phases, from the geometric designs to integrating of the different project dimensions.

The BIM model integrates 8 dimensions of the system in a single design model
3D.

DESIGNING

All the elements of the 2D project are drawn up in a 3D model of the entire system or building.

4D.

TIME

All the 3D elements are linked to the planning activity, as planned in the Gantt Chart diagram.

5D.

COSTS

All the 4D elements are linked to the related resource for determining the final costs and the cost of each project phase.

6D.

SUSTAINABILITY

All the building's systems are evaluated in terms of energy management, compiling information on the elements that constitute the different moments of the building's life cycle.

7D.

FACILITIES MANAGEMENT

Adopting BIM and its capacity to shape databases of 3D objects has revolutionised many maintenance processes and enabled the integration of the life cycle of a building.

8D.

OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY

Using BIM in the 3rd and 4th dimension changes the management of the H&S processes, helping reduce risk and coordinate activities.

How is the BIM model applied

1.INTEGRATED PROJECT DELIVERY

BIM is built by a team of people, systems, structures and practices that collaborate to maximize efficiency in the design and implementing phases.

2.LEVEL OF DEVELOPMENT SPECIFICATIONS

LOD is a reference for defining BIM content, accuracy and reliability at every design level, by supporting the team and production documents.
