Welcome to BIM Wiki on Designing Buildings.
This site is intended to distribute knowledge and spread awareness to BIM newcomers as well as more experienced users.
To find a page, just type your subject into the search box. You can also use the directory on the right to start navigating.
On these pages you will find all you need to know about building information modelling (BIM), written and edited by industry experts such as Dr. Mark Bew MBE, Mervyn Richards OBE, and the team of BIM professionals at Cohesive.
New and updated pages are being added all the time.
BIM WIki was launched on 19 June 2019, providing a free, open-access knowledge sharing platform to help make BIM mainstream.
BIM Wiki has been launched in response to research published by Designing Buildings in 2017 that showed BIM remains an isolated subject, the domain of expert practitioners and not well integrated into the rest of the industry.
Its creators are calling on the industry to help develop the site into a comprehensive source of BIM best practice by contributing new articles and engaging with the existing content.
