Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Manufactured Complementary Building Products

The process of designing, documenting, constructing, and maintaining a building is changing. Instead of treating these as separate steps, a truly more integrated way of thinking is emerging and, in many cases, being demanded by building owners. Building Information Modeling or BIM is one big part of that change and has been regarded as a central tool that has been bringing together architects, engineers, contractors, building owners, specialty consultants, product manufacturers, fabricators and others to look and think differently about the information that they use and the role that they each play in the design, construction and operation of buildings.
