What is a BIM? If you know what it is, then what are a couple of its potential strong points and a couple of its potential weaknesses?
BIM is an acronym for “Building Information Model,” a “virtual building” model that replaces traditional construction documents in the new wave of 3D digital design. It potentially enables building teams to improve coordination and shrink design and construction times. Potential weaknesses are a tendency for designers to over-detail, the multiplying consequences of user input errors, and concern over who owns the model and controls the “vision” of the project.
