BIM: What is it?

BIM refers to a set of tools for modeling information in construction. These tools are implemented through applications that can be used to model the data of a structure, building or construction.

BIM : definition

The technology is aimed at everyone involved in a construction project. It can be used by architects, builders, construction managers, engineers, subcontractors, clients, etc. The technology is increasingly appreciated by municipalities, as they manage a lot of construction projects as well as the management of buildings and properties.

The advantages of BIM for the project management of buildings

BIM cuts across the various phases of a construction project and offers numerous benefits for project managers, especially for local government staff who are faced with day-to-day management.

Revolutionizes the methods

BIM is an innovation that gives you a real advantage when managing a construction project. Specifically, this technology helps automate management tasks and synchronize information to enable better construction management.

Simplifies planning and design

As a true analysis and planning tool, BIM enables rapid testing and risk analysis of a structure in real time. With BIM software, you can create 3D digital models of all types of structures. When the municipality you work for starts a large project, it makes it easier to plan each step.

Help with budget allocation and cost optimization

With BIM software you'll have access to tools that simplify the allocation of your budget and that help you run simulations to better control expenses. This way, you'll have an overview of the budget for the different works and you'll be able to anticipate unforeseen events more effectively, both before and after a project. Logically, this also reduces expenses. At a time when municipalities are being asked more than ever to reduce their operating costs, this type of savings cannot be ignored.

Simplifies communication and interactions

Thanks to a BIM software, the interaction between the different actors involved in a construction project becomes smoother and easier. BIM tools are indeed collaborative. They offer the possibility to inform all stakeholders in real time about the project status, developments and possible changes. All stakeholders (agency staff, partners, architects, etc.) thus have access to the same information at the same time. Time losses and errors caused by a lack of communication are thus avoided.

Improves the quality of construction

Thanks to the design, planning and visualization tools available to professionals with BIM software, the quality of buildings is optimized. Thus, one is entitled to more solid, better lit, safer, more sustainable, more energy efficient and environmentally friendly buildings. This has also become an essential task for municipalities. The use of BIM software can thus be part of an environmentally conscious approach.

Why is the AS-TECH software the most suitable?

AS-TECH Solutions, a true expert in the management of all facilities and technical services for local authorities, offers an innovative management solution with its OPUS Plans-BIM module in collaboration with EDICAD, a specialist in 2D/3D CAD BIM. With this solution you'll be able to carry out simulations, tests, evaluations and monitoring of construction, renovation and equipment works within your municipality's projects.

The publisher also offers a whole range of tools for the implementation of the various phases of a construction project. The AS-TECH Construction Works software is one of the most important modular solutions for the management of construction works.
