BIM Building Information Modeling
The company has for many years designed buildings in 3D and used CAD software to keep track of information about quantities, requirements, materials and construction.
The office has a great knowledge and experience in 3D modeling and making building information models (BIM). The first project made completely in 3D is Efstaleiti 5, an office building, where the BIM model was used to create sections, elevations and to quantify building material.
BIM is a methodology where each profession (architects, engineers) builds a digital 3D model that fulfills the requirements of the IFC standard. Specific programs assemble the models and make collision tests, calculate energy consumption and various other things before construction.
