Il BIM – Building Information Modeling – is not a tool, but a SMART, FUNCTIONAL, SIMPLIFIED and SUSTAINABLE unified design process based on a model that includes all information concerning the entire life cycle of a work, from design to construction, until its demolition and dismission.
BIM makes it possible to create, rather than a simple 3D representation, a dynamic, interdisciplinary, shared and constantly evolving information model.
BIM’s basic premise is the collaboration of the different figures involved in the different phases of a structure’s life cycle.
Thanks to BIM, a building can be “built” even before its physical realization through a virtual model by all the project stakeholders.
STI engineering has been integrating BIM as a standard modus operandi at all stages of the design process:
- PROJECT > DESIGN (3D)
- CONSTRUCTION > TIME FACTOR (4D) > COST FACTOR (5D)
- OPERATION > OPERATION (6D) > CONTROL (7D)
