Key characteristics of BIM
BIM refers to Building Information Modelling, which takes imaging and documentation of buildings to a whole new level. These take into account sophisticated software as well as programs that are not limited to the primitive 2D images that were prevalent in the past. The advantage of using BIM services is that the whole of the building product lifecycle is catered to at the click of a few buttons. You can look at the whole gamut of design of buildings and then storage of the data in a secure manner with options for dynamic change and thereon helping in the production and actuation of the building into reality.
BIM services are very advantageous to building design and implementation because it considers what are known as intelligent design and storage facilities. In a traditional 2D image, you could do only so much with reference to data storage and modification. But BIM gives a dynamic modelling option wherein you can look at not only the building and its interiors in a dynamic manner, but the whole eco-system of buildings, surroundings and landscape around are integrated in a very savvy manner.
BIM is also of great use in marketing and advertising of building, especially when it comes to commercial, as well as residential buildings. Consumers are no longer satisfied with a simple brochure that gives a 2D image of the prospective office, retail space or an apartment. They want dynamic and slick computer-based representations of the proposed building that is effective in giving a beautiful image from all angles that are indeed the best advertising proposition that a building marketer could expect.
