About BIM

What is BIM

BIM stands for Building Information Modeling. The added value of BIM is in the I of Information. By adding information, a digital copy of the building with all characteristics is made.

A BIM contains all information about all components in the object. From kinds of steel with the chemical components to the sunlight ratio with an specific kind of window. For intergrating BIM in organisations and distribution chains levels of Building Information Models are implemented by the “EU Building Information Model Task Group”.

The information in buildings has added value. Not only proves BIM it’s added value in constructing buildings, it also adds value in maintenance plans.

Added value of BIM

A BIM has added value in the production process of buildings and cities. What a BIM does is make the preparation time a little longer by first constructing a digital twin of the building with all elements and their characteristics.

After the building is digitaly build, the construction pfase can start. In this way, all partners in the construction industry have the exact information where, when with what they have to drill which hole, pour concrete or place a window. A Building Information Model provides an integrated way of working, building, maintenance and planning. More and more governments are also making BIM mandatory for private and public projects.

Building without mistakes, that’s BIM.

Combining Building Information Models with Revit

Revit is the proprietary software of Autodesk. Revit is a significant player in the BIM market together with Bentley Systems and the Nemetschek group (owner of Graphisoft’s application ArchiCAD, plus solutions including Allplan and Vectorworks).

At The BIM Engineers, Revit benefits from a preferential position because of the public acceptance rate and implementation rate. The potential of Building Information Modeling to support a transformation of the processes of design and construction has been evident in the construction industry. Although a Building Information Model is considered helpful in improving design quality by eliminating Design conflicts, making the design more intelligent, reducing wastage, and fastening the construction process.

Creating Smart cities with BIM & GIS

Geographic Information System (GIS) provides the ability to capture and analyse spatial and geographic data. For GIS apps are used as a tool for queries, to store and edit data. The data will be presented as maps. GIS is 2D representation of large-scale geospatial shapes with data of all the subjects in the representation. A Building Information Model (BIM) is a digital twin of a building.

A fully integrated connection in the infrastructure of cities is getting more important. The Digital Twins connected with the environment, structures, city design models and with that creating added data for smart cities. The BIM Engineers virtualizes and connets networks of infrastructure in one model.

Combining Building information models and SketchUp

Across the AEC industry, Building Information Models are an important process to organize the design, planning and construction of buildings, infrastructure etc. It is highly efficient and makes collaboration between parties possible.

SketchUp is a user-friendliness software. It’s a simple and easy to use desgin software. The program realy comes to live when the design is renderd. If you need to make an architectural design SketchUp has the possibility to make an efficiently digital sketch or concept using the program with little experience,

With an intelligent BIM-workflow, Sketchup is a reasonable, low cost and easy-to-use BIM tool.

What is the added value of BIM?

A BIM has added value in the production process of buildings and cities. The preparation time becomes a little longer by first building the building digitally with all elements. After which the building can really be built. In this way, all partners in the construction industry have the exact information where, when with what they have to drill which hole, pour concrete or place a window. Building without mistakes, that’s the value BIM.

Can you combine BIM and Revit?

Yes, Revit is a Building Information Modeling program

Can you combine BIM and SketchUp?

With an intelligent BIM-workflow, Sketchup is a reasonable, low cost and easy-to-use BIM tool.

When should I chose for a Building Information Model and when for a SkechUp model?

If you need software that is easy to use for making a design, then SketchUp is the way to go. For a powerful, professional software that can make a digital twin than a BIM model is the way to go.
