BIM (Building Information Modelling): “BIM is the process of generating and managing building data during its life cycle. Typically it uses three-dimensional, real-time, dynamic building modeling software to increase productivity in building design and construction. The process produces the Building Information Model which encompasses building geometry, spatial relationships, geographic information, and quantities and properties of building components*”

*Chuck Eastman is one of the Founders of BIM

BIM consists of two components:

1) Three dimensional graphical presentation
2) Linked database in which relevant data such as properties, relations, maintenance status etc. are fixed.




BMS (Building Management System): Building managament systems integrate different kinds of disciplines (HVAC control, light and blind control, subsystems…) coordinated by a unified management level. One of the major benefits of the direct digital control system within a complex building (which contains many different zones) is the availability of building data.*
