Building Information Modelling (BIM)

BIM is the process of delivering and operating built assets using well-structured digital information that all the necessary parties have access to.

It is a way of working, rather a physical object or an entity. CartoConsult provide BIM consultancy and services to the construction sector, including Carto3D™, our BIM Level 3 enabling webGIS software.
