Building information modeling software is a powerful tool with enormous potential to streamline the construction process. According to the American Institute of Architects, a building information model ” … is a digital representation of the physical and functional characteristics of the project.”

Architects initially hold the power of BIM, though they must share its capabilities to enhance construction efficiency. BIM not only allows a project’s design to be viewed in three or more dimensions, but also it can demonstrate the means by which a building should be constructed, locations for crane placements, manpower loading, and other means and methods issues. Utilized appropriately, BIM can reduce construction time, costs, and claims.
