BIM (Building Information Modelling) has proved to be a game-changer in construction and its use is set to grow, because of advancements in technologies like AI.
BIM is a shared knowledge resource for all the information on a building project – before, during and after construction.
BIM provides a set of interrelated and cross-referenced information. For example, objects in the model are linked to related information including manuals, specifications, commissioning data, photos and warranty details.
AI software can train and improve itself based on experience. There is huge potential for BIM to provide new insights as the digital data of our built environment is compiled and AI software has the potential to learn from this data too.
