Building Information Modeling (BIM)

The use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) is now getting specified in an increasing number of countries for architecture projects. But what actually is BIM? It is a method for the optimum planning, drafting, constructing and operating of buildings. This involves the digital networking and modelling of all of the requisite planning data. Based on that model, high-end 3D visualisations and a complete set of building documentation can be produced. Here are some of the other benefits:

  • Greater efficiency and precision at every stage of the project.
  • It is easier to perform a feasibility study.
  • Planning security through fault analysis at an early stage.
  • Seamless exchange of information between those involved in the project through the use of a shared set of data.
  • Optimum cost control and dependable deadline compliance.


As a manufacturer of metal ceiling systems, durlum offers these in the form of a BIM library, as a free download for Revit on Autodesk. This means that our ceiling systems can be integrated directly into building models and can be customised on the basis of various parameters.
