BIM is not just for design of structures, but it also is very much driving the innovation in the field of construction. The I in BIM is a very important letter as it stands for Information. This information can then be used downstream throughout the project’s lifecycle for planning, designing, analysis, fabrication, construction and ownership. Fred Mills from The B1M shares the importance of bringing BIM to the field in this 3 minute video. In this video, Fred defines BIM, then discusses the issues associated to manual processes and finally walks through delivering field data from within the model to total stations for accuracy.
