Building Information Modeling (BIM) is process that creates a “data-rich” digital model representing a three- (or more) dimensional building or structure, including the physical characteristics, material attributes, and other information that may be assigned to the building and its components. By constructing a structure “virtually” before “physically,” interface among building systems can be coordinated. Attributes can also be “informational” (including time [4-D] and cost [5-D] -related) as well as typical physical geometry and materials.
