Glossary and definitions

BIG and little bim

In the design and construction context, you are working globally. You no longer work in isolation from anything or anyone. You integrate data from everywhere to understand what you are doing in a big world context. No longer is your building’s context limited to the surrounding buildings or the neighborhood. The acronym BIM (Building Information Modeling) was coined in early 2002 to describe virtual design, construction, and facilities management.
