Ultimate Guide to Getting Started with BIM

  • Getting Started with BIM

If you're looking to gain a comprehensive understanding of Building Information Modeling (BIM) and its various applications in the construction industry, our latest guide is an excellent resource for you. 

This free-to-download guide provides a detailed overview of BIM's fundamentals, history, international standards, implementation, and more, with the aim of empowering construction professionals to harness the full potential of BIM. Additionally, it highlights how BIM can enhance project efficiency, minimize errors, and increase transparency, thus making it a must-read for anyone interested in BIM.

BIM has revolutionized the construction industry by changing the way stakeholders collaborate, plan, and execute construction projects, from design through to maintenance. Due to its advanced digital representation of a building over traditional methods, BIM has become an industry-standard in design and is widely used by architects, specifiers, and other industry professionals. In fact, according to Dodge Data & Analytics, 88% of architects and engineers believe that BIM enables better design insight, and 82% of BIM users have reported achieving a positive ROI.

As the industry focuses on maintaining an accurate "golden thread" of information and the decarbonization of the built environment, BIM's impact will grow even stronger. BIM already plays a vital role in creating and maintaining up-to-date golden threads of information, which optimize production, reduce costs, and champion sustainable practices. Its importance in this regard will only increase in the future, making it an essential tool for all construction professionals.

As a manufacturer, it is becoming increasingly essential to create BIM objects for your products in order to stay competitive and meet the rising demands of sustainability targets, legislation, and standards. Hosting your BIM objects on platforms like bimstore can increase your brand awareness and credibility while effectively driving product discovery among leading architects and specifiers who value accurate product information and collaboration.
