BIM Improves Efficiencies and Reduces Costs Throughout the Building Lifecycle

As buildings evolve, it’s crucial that building owners and their architects, engineers, contractors, and facility managers share information throughout the lifecycle – from initial design, through construction, to operations and maintenance. Building Information Modeling, or BIM, facilitates this information sharing.  It is an integrated process that provides coordinated, reliable information about a project from design through operation. 

Owners/operators and AEC service providers alike are discovering the values of utilizing BIM for both private and public sector buildings projects:

  • Significantly improve efficiencies in the design development and review process
  • Identify errors earlier, reducing costly reworks during construction
  • Dramatically reduce time, effort, and cost of facilities management

This webpage contains information, free trials, add-ins, and templates that relate to using Autodesk software for both private and public sector building projects.

Free Trials:

Try Autodesk Revit Now
Built for Building Information Modeling (BIM), Autodesk® Revit® software helps capture and analyze concepts and maintain the project vision through design, documentation, and construction. Information-rich models support sustainable design, construction planning, and fabrication. And connecting BIM data from the design and construction phases to the facility management and operations phase allows owners/operators to better manage a building’s occupancy to help reduce real estate costs, and more productively track and maintain critical mechanical, engineering, and plumbing system assets.

Autodesk® Revit now includes Autodesk® Revit® Architecture, Autodesk® Revit® MEP, and Autodesk® Revit® Structure software.
