What is a BIM
BIM is an acronym for Building Information Modelling, a process that uses a digital model of a building throughout the design, planning, and construction phases of a project. BIM is considered an open methodology in which all parties collaborate on one platform. The goal is to use this collaborative process to create better buildings that are safer and more cost-efficient.
BIM, or Building Information Modelling, is a powerful tool that can help you design and build better buildings. It integrates information about building components and systems through the entire life cycle of a structure. This approach helps prevent costly mistakes, improves quality and performance throughout the entire life cycle of a building and helps make your project more sustainable.
Buildmat BIM Library
The Buildmat BIM Library is at the start of its journey, we’re starting off our journey for BIM objects for sinks, our files are for Autodesk Revit Families and allows you to either visit our entire showroom or you can import each individual sink.
Our BIM models have been carefully created by our architect team which means they know what you need and have modelled it for you. We know there are limited brands in Australia with a BIM library.
If you have other formats that you require, please let us know which SKU and file type and we’ll see if we can help you create the 3D models. Our next target is 3D cad, AutoCAD, and SketchUp files.
BIM covers the design, construction and operation of buildings and other structures.
BIM covers the design, construction and operation of buildings and other structures. BIM is an integrated, multidisciplinary approach to design and construction. It's a collaborative process that involves all the stakeholders in the project, including architects, engineers, surveyors (surveyors), property managers and government agencies.
BIM can help improve quality and performance throughout the entire life cycle of a building.
BIM can help improve quality and performance throughout the entire life cycle of a building. We know that the construction industry is often chaotic, and the use of BIM is scarce and finding particular products is hard.
A more accurate design, construction, and commissioning process will result in a better product for the end user.
Improved workflow, as part of your construction project and construction management
Improved documentation will provide a clearer understanding of what's being delivered to the client or owner.
It allows the client, the architect, project manager and other construction professionals to be on the same page when selecting and looking at finishes of a building.
Helps with managing specifications of finishes within a project
Allows with quick and easy 3D model visualization
As we’ve seen, BIM is about more than just building information modelling. It touches on many aspects of the construction process, including traditional design and engineering disciplines like architecture, engineering, and surveying. The benefits of BIM are clear: it can help improve quality and performance throughout the entire life cycle of a building- from pre-construction planning through construction and beyond. So let’s start using the our BIM data and seeing where it takes us in the digital transformation of the construction industry.
