Building Information Modelling (BIM)

Our unique, multi-perspective data sets map out AEC industry spending on BIM applications. We help some of the world’s best-known IT vendors plan successful market strategies.

Building Information Modelling (BIM) represents the concept of greater integration between the wide range of applications used in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry.

The vision is for an accurate and complete digital model of a building – geometry and attributes – to be used seamlessly for planning, design, construction and then operation of the facility over its life.

BIM therefore supports collaboration between many different engineering disciplines, including architects, engineers and constructors.

Technology integration and interoperability reduces errors through consistency of information and the ability to check designs in a virtual environment to identify any potential design, construction or operational issues.
