About ‘BIM by AGC’

BIM (Building Information Modeling) is an intelligent 3D model-based process that gives architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) professionals the insight and tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure.

The M in BIM is about:

1) M for Model: creating a 3D CAD model of the building project that represents its physical characteristics, its performance, the way it is to be constructed and anything else of use to those involved in designing, building and operating the asset.

2) M for Management: it is a management tool for building projects thru all its stages from design phase, via the construction phase to operating the asset and ultimately renovation or cradle-to-cradle dismantlement. This model draws on information assembled collaboratively and updated at key stages of a project.

3) M for Maintenance: BIM is a performant tool for the Maintenance Department of the private housing or commercial project during life cycle.

 

The BIM model is not simply a 3D CAD model. With more powerful computers and access to the databases behind the graphics, it is possible to add non-graphic information about AGC glass products (BIM objects) in the digital model. A great deal of information can be added to a model.

AGC also developed a ‘BIM Selector by AGC’ Plug-In to help users to select the right glazing depending on the application.
