Building Information Modelling (BIM)

Building Information Modelling (BIM)

BIM or Building Information Modelling is a process for creating and managing information on a construction project across the project lifecycle.



One of the key outputs of this process is the Building Information Model, the digital description of every aspect of the built asset. This model draws on information assembled collaboratively and updated at key stages of a project. Creating a digital Building Information Model enables those who interact with the building to optimise their actions, resulting in a greater whole life value for the asset.

The Competition has been designed to reflect the role of a BIM Modeller and the standards that are expected within the AEC industry.
