Building Information Modeling (BIM or TIM) is a process based on the use of intelligent 3D models. This technology helps to improve the design, construction and maintenance of buildings and structures. 

Important: BIM is not just a 3D model, but a complete working environment for collaboration. BIM-modeling can be presented as a process of effective interaction between designers, consultants, customer and other project participants.

BIM-programs also provide information management on construction and operation facilities, help to systematize it. 

Introduction of BIM is especially important in view of the fact that, as part of the implementation of the Russian government’s resolution, the domestic construction industry should start the transition to BIM on January 1, 2022. 

IM Consulting specialists have extensive expertise in the use of BIM-programs and are ready to help with the selection of software for specific tasks and requirements. If necessary, IM Consulting representatives are ready to organize an online meeting so that you can evaluate all the opportunities and benefits of the solutions presented.

Let us list some programs for architectural 3D modeling from the IM Consulting catalogue:

Autodesk Revit

Autodesk Revit is one of the most functional products for information model of industrial buildings and civil objects. Provides wide possibilities for automated design of architectural elements, technological and engineering systems, construction structures, for three-dimensional modeling of structural elements, creation of user objects. Provides coordinated work of specialists on the project, from the concept to the release of working drawings and specifications.

Autodesk Revit is designed for architects, designers and design engineers. 

Bentley

Bentley is a family of functional solutions for business (Bentley Plant), buildings (Bentley Building), Bentley Engineering (Bentley Ivil), etc. 

Autodesk Civil 3D is designed for detailed design of infrastructure objects, master plans, roads and external engineering networks with subsequent release of design and working documentation on GOST with support of working processes of information modeling.

Autodesk Civil 3D 

The Autodesk Civil 3D solution is designed for the design of infrastructure facilities, master plans, roads and external engineering networks, with subsequent release of design and work documentation in accordance with GOST.

Tekla Structures 

Tekla Structures (formerly Xsteel) is software for the modelling of buildings and structures for both industrial and civil use. The invention makes it possible to produce structural models of different building materials. 

Like a number of other most functional solutions, Tekla Structures supports 5D BIM technology with tools to manage all phases of the building life cycle from design to construction to decommissioning.
