Project design where people, processes and tools come together. By using BIM (Building Information Modelling), BEMO creates more sustainability in construction. As all project participants work together on the project design in the same 3D model by means of virtual representation, adjustments become visible in real time for all responsible parties.

With BIM, project design gains transparency and, above all, cost and schedule certainty. This conserves resources and increases efficiency. BEMO is a pioneer in this industry and will support you in every LOD phase.

What is BIM (Building Information Modelling)?
Building Information Modelling is the holistic process for creating and collecting information for building objects. BIM technology is based on three-dimensional modelling. The building model therefore consists of three-dimensional elements to which attributes such as material, dimensions or prices are assigned in advance. All planning elements, such as building fabric, connections, or valves, can be modelled. The virtual building model that is created using BIM technology is eventually a digital prototype. With a 4D BIM technology, there is a temporal dimension in addition to the 3 geometric dimensions. This can be used to visualise the duration of an activity or the time course of a construction phase. This facilitates the planning, execution and later the maintenance of a building object.
What is the difference between 3D CAD modelling and BIM?
CAD and BIM support the capture and communication of the design and execution intent of a building object using a drawing representation. This means that all the necessary information is available to those involved in the project. Both processes therefore offer geometric expressions of buildings or infrastructure. However, Building Information Modelling also visualises the relationships, metadata, and behaviour of all building components thus creating a real digital image of the project. This data improves project planning, implementation, and future building maintenance that 3D CAD modelling cannot offer. Since the BIM process combines all cross-departmental plans into one data set, it supports the creation and management of information across all phases of a construction project. With CAD, on the other hand, information is less networked and available in different data sources.
What software is used for BIM modelling?
Revit is considered the most popular BIM software. It was developed by Autodesk and is exclusive to Microsoft Windows. In addition to Revit, there are other software solutions for Building Information Modelling. Some of these are the following:

  • Revizto
  • Navisworks (also from Autodesk and geared more towards project management)
  • ArchiCAD (3D BIM Software from Graphisoft)
  • Edificius (2D and 3D dimensions)
  • Autodesk BIM 360
  • Buildertrend
  • BIMObjekt (one of the few free software solutions for BIM content)
  • BricsCAD BIM

What is the advantage of BIM?
With the multidimensional modelling process, calculations, simulations, analyses, and reports throughout the entire life cycle of a building, from planning and implementation to maintenance or demolition, can be mapped in just one platform. In addition, it not only allows 3D modelling, but also 4 dimensions in some cases by adding a time component. In this way, the consequences of changes, such as isolation, can be better assessed.

In addition, Building Information Modelling shows what costs can be expected for material and labour, but maintenance costs can also be calculated. Another advantage: with BIM modelling, everyone involved in the project can work simultaneously on the digital model and track changes and progress in real time. Another advantage is that new information can be added by new users at any time and the model therefore functions as a guide for the entire project.

Who is BIM suitable for?
Working with Building Information Modelling is ideal for everyone involved in a construction project. This includes construction managers, architects, all specialist planners, construction companies, and building service providers. For each target group, the information relevant to the respective tasks is available in the model. In addition, they can all edit the model data simultaneously.
What should be considered when working with Building Information Modelling?
All users of the software should be able to operate it according to the software provider’s specifications. The central workflows are usually described in the software manual. In most cases, assistance is also provided via support offers. Basic guidelines for working with Building Information Modelling are:

  • Management of alphanumeric information is linked to that of geometric objects (levels of detail LOD/LOI are regulated by the BEP – BIM Execution Planning)
  • Each model uses an origin point with the same coordinates (the BAP provides the coordinates)
  • Axis grid and levels must be clearly named
  • If properties change, elements should not be deleted, but the properties of the element should be updated
