Building Information Modeling (BIM)

Building Information Modeling (BIM) in electrical engineering

Building Information Modeling (BIM) promises to make engineering in the building sector much more economical over the entire life cycle of objects. From planning to execution, commissioning and operation, right through to reconstruction or dismantling. Planning processes are optimized, and gaps in the planning are more easily recognized. All project managers benefit from BIM through a massive reduction of disruptions in the construction process. When all the tools available can access and understand the same database, a consistent and system-independent data exchange is possible. This ensures reliable scheduling and a constantly updated cost overview. Collisions, bad planning, delays and cost explosions – all such issues are a thing of the past.

In addition to this, with consistent ongoing development, the data pools of individual Smart Buildings grow together to form entire Smart Cities.

This is truly an exciting time for the experts within building automation regarding the idea behind BIM. However, it is still a long way off to perfection. Because even just the definition, adoption and implementation of generally valid international standards takes time. While the statics and technical building equipment (TGA; German abbreviation for „technische Gebäudeausrichtung“) are already well advanced, BIM is still in the starting blocks when it comes to definitions for building automation.

This white paper performs a reality check about what opportunities BIM really offers and what has already been achieved. Which user groups benefit from BIM, which tools are used in each case and which trades are involved. This will be clarified in the white paper with examples.

In addition, it also provides an overview of which bodies are relevant to BIM – and what they are responsible for.
