Building Information Modeling

Building Information Modeling, or BIM, is a digital, three dimensional model linked to a database of project information. This tool is revolutionizing the way designers and constructers collaborate on projects, and is essential to integrated project delivery. The creation of this three dimensional data base assists the A/E in communicating what the built environment will look like to the client, it guides the estimator through the bidding process, and it reduces the conflicts during construction through coordination of the various building systems and equipment. Immel Construction uses Autodesk software to manage the building models for the project and expedite the flow of information to subcontractors and suppliers.
