What is BIM?

BIM (Building Information Modeling) is a process of digitizing all project information to serve the design, construction, management & operation process, and support for related parties AEC experts and experts (architecture, engineering, construction). The information in the BIM model provides a much more intuitive look than simple 2D and 3D drawings, which are made up of intelligent models with lots of information, changed and updated. Throughout the project development process, data is centrally managed, saving costs, time and limiting risks. BIM applications in construction investment projects bring many benefits to investors, consultants, state management, construction contractors and state management in construction.



Laser Scanning Technology / Scan-To-BIM

Laser Scanning is a technology that uses lasers to collect and digitize projection components such as building conditions and object convert to point cloud data. Collected data is highly precise and fast. Scan data can be easily transformed into a BIM model in accordance with the actual state of the construction, minimized errors when modeling by traditonal way time and cost savings. With the BIM model and data Point Cloud, investors, contractors and stakeholders can easily gather all project information, surveying, quality control, update construction progress and supervision.
