What is 4D BIM and how can it add value on building information modelling (BIM) projects?
In simple terms, BIM is the process of creating information models or data sets formed of graphical and non-graphical information in a shared digital space known as a Common Data Environment (CDE). The information builds in richness as the project stages progress until that complete data set is handed over to the Client and/or end user at completion.
As you create an information model, you can add scheduling data to different components, generating accurate programmed information and enabling step-by-step visuals of your project’s development. It is this is process that is known as 4D BIM.
