Building Information Modeling
Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology allows facility planners, designers, and builders to collect and manage the great amounts of detailed data needed for building and campus design and construction. Using GIS along with BIM gives a spatial dimension into the building management and analysis process. It allows questions to be asked such as: Where are my assets located and how can I most efficiently place and maintain them? Where are the best locations for groups of people who do complimentary tasks? Where’s my energy usage higher than it should be and why?
