Less failure costs in construction with a Building Information Model (BIM)

A BIM helps different parties to understand all the physical and functional characteristics of a building. It is a shared knowledge source with information about a building that serves as a reliable basis for making decisions during the whole life cycle of the building.

    We will explain why this is useful in more detail.

    A major advantage of working with a BIM is that the system always up to date and consistent. If, for example, a contractor makes a change to the virtual model for a house, all stakeholders immediately see the consequences, including financial ones. This ensures that the chance of failure is significantly reduced.

    According to Duurzaam Gebouwd (2016), more than 60% of Dutch builders already use a BIM. Among architects, the percentage is already over 76%. BIM is therefore rapidly becoming the standard in the Netherlands.


    Besides the advantages for the parties involved in the construction, a BIM is also useful for future residents, for example. In a BIM, you can very easily show a 3D representation of possible options. If, for example, someone wants to add a balcony to a house, that is easy. visual in the BIM. This reduces the chance of the resident making the wrong choice.
