What is Building Information Modeling (BIM)?

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is the integrated process of creating and managing information for a built environment. It is the foundation of a digital transformation in the architecture, engineering, and construction industry. The use of a Building Information Model improves the cooperation between all design and construction suppliers in a tremendous way.

What are the benefits of a Building Information Model?

Building Information Modeling is becoming increasingly compulsory in laboratory design. This is mainly because of the benefits:

  • Saves time (integral planning)
  • Saves money
  • Prevents a lot of frustration on part of clients and all third parties involved (over resolving changes)

Labs31 and BIM projects

Labs31 has been designing the laboratory on the basis of the Building Information Model for over twenty years.
