Building Information Modeling (BIM) NEW ERA IN INDIAN SENARIO
Keywords:BIM, 3D Modelling, 2D Drawing, cost estimation, resources allocation, construction scheduling
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an emerging technology in Architecture, Engineering, and
Construction (AEC) industry. BIM is a computable representation of building and its related information, which provides
a virtual view of the objects in the building with physical geometry (2D or 3D) and other functional parameters.
Compared to parametric models in CAD, the object-based parametric models in BIM represent the objects by both
physical and functional parameters. Diverse BIM tools such as Autodesk Revit Architecture, ArchiCAD, and Bentley
Architecture have been widely adopted within AEC industry in design/modeling, construction energy analysis, and clash
detection, construction scheduling and cost estimating.
