dc.description.abstract Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a new way of approaching the design, construction, and management of a building. It is an innovative method that bridges the communication gap between the architects, engineers, and contractors. By definition Building Information Modeling is a model-based technology linked with a database of project information. BIM builds a virtual model of the building so that architects, engineers, and contractors can all access at anytime. With BIM, architects and engineers are able to efficiently generate and exchange information, create digital representations of all stages of the building process, and simulate real-world performance. By doing this, many errors are eliminated in the field which increases productivity and improves quality. This report defines what BIM actually is and discusses the benefits and challenges that are associated with this new method of design and construction. Specifically, this report will take an in depth look at how BIM affects MEP design. en
