BIM helps AEC professionals design, build, and operate their building and infrastructure projects

What is BIM?

BIM (Building Information Modeling) is an intelligent 3D model-based process that gives architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) professionals the insight and tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure.

AEC Excellence Awards recognizes the world’s best AEC projects
