BIM in the planning process
BIM is not only a three-dimensional virtual representation, a 3D image without any further content, but an interactive model full of data. It's a three-dimensional real-time representation of a database of all the construction parts including their exact geometries, shapes, colours, textures, physical properties, codes and other attributes. It represents the connections of different structural elements with one another and MEP and HVAC installations. All elements are placed in their exact position, in a realistic construction sequence in order to virtually construct the entire building in it's plot, resolving all possible assembly problems, managing processes and conflicts before the real construction starts.
