BIM for civil engineering

Use intelligent, connected BIM (Building Information Modeling) workflows to help improve the outcomes of your infrastructure projects.

What is BIM in civil engineering?

BIM for civil projects improves outcomes with its ability to investigate multiple scenarios, providing data-driven assurance that projects can be delivered on schedule and on budget. BIM offers shared information throughout the project life cycle, driving compelling results.

How is BIM used in civil engineering?

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an intelligent, 3D model-based process that is the foundation of digital transformation. Civil engineers can create and manage all the information surrounding design assets ensuring improved collaboration, shared data, and project delivery that is on time and on budget.

Why BIM is important for civil engineering?

Infrastructure projects today have become more complex. Implementing BIM facilitates project team collaboration; reducing errors, increasing cost predictability, and improving understanding.
