BIM - Building Information Modelling

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a process involving generation and management of digital representations of physical and functional characteristics of places, which can be exchanged or networked to support decision-making in architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) sector. BIM is a relatively new technology in an industry typically slow to adopt changes, especially in Portugal. The present paper aims to frame the international implementation of BIM in order to propose a roadmap to spread the use of BIM methodologies in Portugal in the next decade.

The GEO| Design + BIM event will present and discuss the needs, challenges, potential and use of geospatial data analytics and 3D modeling in spatial planning, construction, operation and maintenance. This event aims to bridge the gap between disciplines with recent technological developments as an enabling factor. The use of IoT technology in geospatial analytics, 3D modeling and the introduction of new devices improve collaboration, efficiency and performance in planning and design phase, during construction, in post-build savings and for ongoing operational management.
