Better information sharing and tracking

From the initiation of the project, during programming, BIM provides for the implementation of information sharing tools to facilitate the development of the project.

BIM clearly formalizes each person’s tasks, detailing how to accomplish them: deadlines, tools, level of detail, etc.

All these elements are clearly described by all players in the BIM protocol. Later, these elements take place in the BIM execution plan.

A CDE-Common Data Environment data centralization and exchange platform (for example BIM 360) and viewers guarantee simplified communication between players in construction and real estate.

In doing so, BIM enables a continuous exchange of information which improves collaboration and ensures a better understanding of the project.

Fewer problems among stakeholders 

BIM provides real-time access to all information relating to various aspects of the project. The client can therefore be more easily informed of the progress of the studies and / or the site.

By improving communication and information tracking, the number of site-related problems is easily reduced.

Residual problems can be identified and resolved before construction begins, during which time, changes have less impact both on planning and on budget. 

Easier to manage infrastructure and buildings

BIM intrinsically contributes to building or renovating better quality buildings and infrastructure. For building operators, this is accompanied by greater ease of use, but also reduced management and maintenance costs throughout the life of the building, including during its future renovation or even demolition.

A more competitive sector

By improving efficiency and productivity, BIM makes an entire sector more efficient.

A construction project can therefore be carried out faster, at lower cost and with reduced maintenance budgets throughout the life of the building. This therefore makes the construction sector more competitive overall and capable of fulfilling its societal mission even better.

Better environmental management

A significant portion of carbon emissions and energy consumption comes from buildings and their operations.

BIM allows, from the outset of the first 3D models, to simulate the building’s energy consumption and to optimize its design and location to reduce this consumption and indirectly the generation of greenhouse gases.
