BIM Methodology

According to Building Smart, BIM methodology or Building Information Modeling “is a collaborative methodology for creating and managing a construction project”.

At Proinsermant we provide quite detailed information on projects, construction workflows optimization, and best interaction with our customers’ thanks to 3D generated presentations.

All our engineering projects are available for BIM Methodology realization, and of course, using 2D modeling (CAD) techniques.


Dimensions of the bim methodology

The BIM methodology is based on 7 stages which are called the “building’s life cycle”, with the initial idea as the first dimension and demolition and recycling the seventh dimension.

The dimensions of the BIM methodology are as follows:

1st dimension: idea

The project starts with an idea and first estimates of what the project will look like.

2nd dimension: sketch

The materials and the basis for the sustainability of the project are considered.

3rd dimension: coordination

Used to bring together the different specialities involved in the project, allowing some on-site errors to be avoided.

4th dimension: work planning

The project is planned based on the timeframe. Here, 4D modelling is the most useful tool as it provides the people involved with the project with more information and assistance.

5th dimension: measuring and work budget

Cost controls are established for each phase of the project, including construction, operation and maintenance.

6th dimension: energy certification

BIM Methodology is used for making calculations, analysis, and energy studies for model optimization and project improvement.

7th dimension: asset management

BIM Methodology can be used for managing any kind of financial implications in the project, as well as scheduling costs and creating a project maintenance program.
