Join Brian Myers for an in-depth discussion in this video The dimensions of BIM, part of BIM Management: Careers.
- [Instructor] Part of the BIM management process…is understanding the various dimensions of BIM.…The first dimension is called 3D,…D indicating dimension.…3D means that it's a three-dimensional structure,…so it has length, height, width,…with different lengths associated with it.…That means that BIM is usually a 3D model.…The next D is considered 4D,…which is normally associated with construction sequencing.…
Construction sequencing is adding the phase of time…to this building information modeling process.…So you can show the building going from just the site…to the construction of the building…to the management of the facility…to eventually renovations…and the ultimate demolition of that building,…each being a different phase of time.…That's 4D.…5D is adding cost to this process.…So you can add cost,…may that be material cost, labor cost,…or any other cost,…to the process of building a facility…and maintaining the facility over its life cycle.…
So that can include such things as energy costs…to keep the building heated and cooled…
