The construction industry is keeping up with the modern digitalization we are experiencing in the 21st century. In the construction industry, the technological breakthrough is known as BIM (Building Information Modeling). This is the modeling of a built environment with an emphasis on the information about the object. If we successfully follow the goals of BIM, the result will be an orderly database about the built environment, with the help of which the client shall receive an orderly, clearly defined and surveyable project that shall be useful for the whole life span of the object, even for maintenance needs.
The BIM approach enables several advantages, due to which the technology is being implemented around the world:
- Unambiguous and evident view of construction elements that will enable the client a quality 3D presentation of the designed object and its installation in the environment.
- Greater coordination of the project and consequently fewer unforeseen complications during construction and use of the object
- More detailed list of works
- Greater transparency of the project
- Greater sustainability of information compared to printed copies
- Faster accessibility of information compared to leafing through archival paper material
More work required by the designer for implementing BIM, can present the project to the client through visualization and contributes to a more qualitative and cost-rational project in the final form.
