Toward a standard format for describing objects in digital models
The deployment of building information modeling (BIM) depends on its full adoption by all construction and urban development trades. This new working method enables the various stakeholders in a project to share all information about the "objects” in a digital model of the building and city, beyond just visual representation.
Using BIM in technical inspections
The digital transition in the construction industry is a revolution involving the entire chain of stakeholders at each step of a project, so that the advantages of BIM for productivity and quality can be as beneficial as possible. In a project, compliance with the rules of the trade is verified by a certified control office, beginning with the design phase of the structures and continuing until the work is completed.
