As a real estate owner, architect, engineer, or contractor, you are probably already aware of the challenges arising with increasing frequency. Like more demanding customers, the rapid rate of digital innovation, and higher societal expectations. Luckily there is BIM, one of the biggest revolutions in the building industry, and becoming the backbone of construction worldwide. BIM methodology is essential to creating and managing future-worthy constructions.
Walraven embraces the importance of being a BIM clever. Plus, we consider innovation as a never-ending continuous process. So it was time to implement some improvements to our BIM platform and service because we want to offer you the latest smart solutions for using BIM in your projects.
Smart evolution is the key to long-term success and value in any process.
The whole asset lifecycle of a building entails planning, designing, constructing, operating and maintaining. But often, BIM is only used as a 3D-modelling tool for the stages of designing and constructing. That’s a shame. Because what about linking the design and asset management phases of a project?
A digital twin is a virtual representation of an object or system that spans its lifecycle. Real-time data is used to update a digital twin, in which you can visualise, monitor and optimise operational assets, processes and resources.
Maybe you are already a BIM fan, but for those who like to get to know BIM a bit better.
What is BIM?
BIM, or Building Information Modelling, is a process for creating and managing information on a construction project across the project lifecycle.
What is a Building Information Model?
One of the key outputs of Building Information Modelling is the Building Information Model. Multi-disciplinary data is integrated to create a detailed digital description (computer file) which can be extracted, exchanged or networked to support decision-making regarding every aspect of the built asset.
Who uses BIM?
BIM is used by professionals who work in the architecture, engineering, and construction industry.
BIM is a fundamental methodology in planning, designing, constructing, operating and maintaining buildings and physical infrastructures.
