Building Information Modeling (BIM)

Promoting the Use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) to Integrate Construction Data

Building Information Modeling (BIM) collects construction data such as building shape and amount of construction materials into a computer program, generating a three-dimensional visualization that enables the client, architects and builders to better share information and promote more efficient construction projects. By using BIM databases at every stage, from planning, design, and construction to maintenance and management, it is possible to optimize processes throughout an entire project. For example, at an early stage before construction begins, users can confirm usability, pipe layout and other factors, allowing for efficient maintenance once the project is completed.
Obayashi is actively utilizing BIM both to enhance customer satisfaction and to promote greater efficiency on construction projects.
