Building Information Modelling (BIM) is an intelligent 3D model-based process that equips architecture, engineering, and construction to more efficiently plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure.
Through BIM, the construction is virtually built and documented completely on the system, before it takes shape on ground. This gives higher efficiency in terms of time and cost saving. Application of BIM platform is still at nascent stage in India.
