BIM Provides a Digital, Dynamic Representation of Jobsites
Technology is changing the way business the world does business. In the construction industry particularly, a popular tool called BIM (Building Information Modeling) is transforming how buildings and infrastructure are designed, constructed and operated, changing the game.
BIM is an intelligent, 3D model-based process that gives architecture, engineering and construction professionals the insight and tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct and manage buildings and infrastructure. BIM provides digital representations of physical and functional assets on a construction site, providing dynamic information from concept to completion.
The BIM concept envisages virtual construction of a building or infrastructure prior to its actual physical construction. Each professional can add discipline-specific data to the single, shared file. For example: Subcontractors from every trade, including water, electricity, gas, communication utilities and roads, can input critical information into the BIM file before beginning construction.
Always aiming to be at the forefront of innovation, Genie developed a library of BIM files that will provide customers with new ways to include Genie® products into their construction projects. With its BIM library, Genie provides building and infrastructure professionals with the necessary resources to include our products in their projects, from concept to completion.
Today, Genie has 17 models available in its library, with more coming. Long-term, the BIM library enables Genie to be represented as a core element in the development of these types of projects and involved in the design process from the very beginning.
The Genie Building Information Modeling (BIM) library is easily accessible via genielift.com/BIM.
