In the architectural field, Building Information Management (BIM) has made it easier to design, build and maintain structures and their surrounding properties.
This three-dimensional platform gives everyone from architects and engineers to builders and other contractors a broad view of a building plan that includes detailed information and analytical tools.
It has made planning, building and managing sites—including a structure’s infrastructure, such as HVAC and electrical systems—so much easier. Best of all, it helps building specialists to identify potential pitfalls before they occur, saving time and money.
At Quinn Evans Architects, we are no strangers to the power of BIM, and rely on it for many of our projects. But when it came to using it for historic sites, we envisioned a whole new way to do that. See, many of our clients are historic sites that are governed by unique rules, and could largely benefit from the intel that BIM provides.
