Building Information Modeling
Constantly evolving towards the digital transition, our group incorporates a team dedicated to BIM. Our expertise and our references around the BIM approach allow us to offer innovative tools dedicated to projects.
BIM, Building Information Modelling, is an approach associated with a digital model, designed from the project’s launch phase, and used by all project contributors.
BIM uses a collaborative platform that allows each contributor to access the project’s data, from its own tools and software. BIM technology allows knowledge and information about a work to be shared, to form a reliable database for making decisions during its life cycle.
So BIM is the only source of information used by all project contributors.
BIM is defined as both:
- A data structuring, creation, production, exchange, integration, analysis, management, visualisation and exploitation process;
- A model of a built work (that can be kept in a digital file, which includes all technical information needed for its design, construction, operations prior to its acceptance testing (integration, trials, checks, certification), its maintenance, its repairs, potential modifications or extensions and deconstruction). The file is not just a catalogue of objects positioned in the space; it also includes a description of relationships between objects and their properties (for example, wall joints, types of openings or penetrating a wall or a slab and breaks in thermal bridges);
BIM is “Building before Building” to have the best acceptability of projects, the best mastery of risks in the design, realisation, exploitation and maintenance of projects, an increased quality of the services given to the client, the improvement of realisation schedules and cost reduction (of design, construction, exploitation-maintenance and deconstruction).
