As building projects become more complex, Building Information Modelling (BIM) has become an important tool to help building professionals improve their work effectiveness and efficiency. As an integrated design, documentation and construction tool, the strategic implementation of BIM in building projects would enhance communication and multi-disciplinary collaboration among all the project stakeholders, significantly improving the design, construction and operation processes, with productivity gains and returns.
