Detrás das siglas BIM (Bulding Information Modeling) existe uma metodologia de trabalho que tem como objetivo a geração de um modelo virtual que concentra e registra todos os dados e profissionais que intervém na concepção de um edifício. Desde a ideia inicial, durante a construção e vida útil até a demolição final ou restauração. Essa metodologia baseada em um modelo virtual e na gestão da informação obriga a que tanto arquitetos, como engenheiros, construtores, financeiros, gestores, administradores de edifícios e patrimônios, facilities managers, etc, devam saber o que é e como manipular as ferramentas BIM.
