Building Information Modeling (BIM) is the process of generating and managing building data during its life cycle. Typically it uses three-dimensional, real-time, dynamic building modeling software to increase productivity in building design and construction. The process produces the Building Information Model (also abbreviated BIM), which encompasses building geometry, spatial relationships, geographic information, and quantities and properties of building components.
Passing this information between parties during the lifecycle of the building should decrease transition time and errors. This information can also be used for the property management company as they track tenant space, rent area in a chase, and monitor modernization projects.
