Understanding BIM


Part of the Architect of the Future’s Toolbox, BIM or Building Information Modelling is a process that has been designed for optimization. Perfectly suited to our core approach of Parametricism, BIM is today used by architects and engineers alike.

What is it, though?

Simply put, it is the process of creating and managing information about construction projects using virtual models that can detect any possible design, construction, or operating difficulties. In one fell swoop, the project is managed in a better manner – and because the aim is to work around these difficulties, solutions are forthcoming and better-planned as well.

What does it include?
Encompassing more than geometry, BIM covers spatial relationships, geospatial information, building component properties, cost, asset management, sustainability, manufacturer information, and more. It also involves Fabrication Workflow, Complex Geometric Workflow, and Presentation Workflow, which then leads to Client approval.

How can we integrate it with Parametric Design Tools?
At Studio Emergence, we integrate open source design tools and integrate the same in the existing BIM workflows of different offices and projects. This not only helps us manage projects better with BIM but also allows unlimited changes with the least amount of time used due to the parametric software integration.
