      BIM for structures

      Building Information Modeling (BIM) helps structural engineers optimize designs, improve collaboration, and deliver projects faster. Using BIM, structural engineers can make more informed design decisions, automate construction documentation, and produce more constructible designs.

      How is BIM used?

      BIM is an intelligent, 3D model-based process that helps structural professionals to design, detail, document, and fabricate structural systems. BIM enables project teams to work more collaboratively – helping to optimize designs, improve accuracy, and connect design to fabrication.
