BAU 2017: New planning method for construction companies

Planning building projects faster and more efficiently

Research News / December 01, 2016

Building Information Modeling, an innovative modeling method, displays blueprints clearly in three dimensions and provides additional information such as technical specifications and requirements, building costs and timeframes. Its main advantage is that all the various data sources are digital, so information can be merged coherently into joint models. Researchers will be presenting their projects on BIM at the Fraunhofer Building Innovation Alliance’s special show, “Fraunhofer CityLaboratory – Creating Living Spaces,” at the BAU trade fair in Munich from January 16 to 21, 2017 (Hall C2, Booth 538).

  • Building Information Modeling, BIM for short, is a new construction planning method. BIM creates digital building plans with detailed information.
  • All the various data sources are digital, so information can be merged into joint models. This speeds up building projects.
