IS-2008-123: BIM and Project Management – Advancing Integrated Project Delivery on Capital Building Programs

A new methodology for building design is presented: Building Information Modeling (BIM).  BIM is a three-dimensional representation of the architecture and structure of a building and the systems within it (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing).  Project management for building design is being replaced with Infrastructure Lifecycle Management (ILM) that spans planning, building, and operating a building.  Business value is increased by the integration of BIM and ILM.  BIM drawings accompanying contracts can reduce misunderstandings.
