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.


BIM Methodology Dimensions

BIM Methodology is based on 7 stages which are called “building’s entire life cycle”, being the first dimension the initial idea, and the seventh dimension the demolition and recycling.

BIM methodology dimensions are:

1st dimension: idea

The project starts with an idea and first estimations about how the project will be.

2nd dimension: sketch

Materials and bases are raised for a sustainable project.

3rd dimension: coordination

Is used for having a discus table about different specializations in the project, letting delete some failures at the work.

4th dimension: work planning

The project is planned depending on the available time. Here, 4D modeling is the most useful tool since it offers more information and helps people involved in the project.

5th dimension: planning and construction budget

Cost controls are established in each one dimension 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 improving the project.

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.
