BIM Design Process

BIM driven architectural design is about the exploitation of the process to boost creativity in a number of ways, throughout the design activities from Concept stage to Construction Documentation. In the Concept Stage: the BI Model will communicate the initial response to the brief, as well as the aesthetic intent, examination of forms will be facilitated in a 3 dimensional space, access to building metrics, area and volume, will happen concurrently to the concept massing process, concept models will be placed in their actual geographical position within the digital environment thus allowing for

  energy and sun-shading simulations that optimize sustainable facade design and selection of exterior enclosure materials, facade, roofing and other articulated systems will be generated utilizing computational parametric design. In the Detail and Construction Documentation Design Stage: drawings and Schedules will be accurate, efficient and coordinated being in reality views from a different angle towards the same object, that is the Building Information Model, compliance with regulatory requirements will be easier to verify, information that can be used for fabrication,

co-ordination, sequencing and estimating purposes, will be embedded in the elements of the BI Model, critical interfaces will be flagged, and Clash Detection and Resolving process will be executed prior to the production of clash free detailed documentation, parametric information will support the production of information necessary to execute the project. specific systems, objects and assemblies will be accurate in terms of specification, size, form, function and location. constructability and sequencing of works will be verified through detailed visualization and 4D scheduling simulations.
