A bit about BIM
Building Information Modelling (BIM) became a mandatory requirement for delivery of all all centrally procured government construction projects, no matter their size, in 2016 and its adoption continues to grow within the private sector.
BIM is a process involving the generation and management of digital representations of physical and functional characteristics of places, and at the heart of the process is a drive to change and improve how buildings are planned, designed, built and managed.
BIM Objects are one part of this system and provide an a model of a product with relevant NBS specification data associated with it that provides data for a buildings construction and lifecycle which can be inserted into architectural models and specifications, and is then used by the contractor and ultimately the building operator to develop and maintain the building.
