BIM Guide 01 is a high-level overview intended for GSA employees and consultants who are beginning to learn about BIM. The Guide focuses on how BIM technology - and specifically, GSA’s National 3D-4D-BIM Program - can be used in support of better design and construction. It specifically targets those who are getting started with BIM and trying to find appropriate BIM applications for specific GSA projects.
Since the publication of this Guide, GSA’s National 3D-4D-BIM Program has expanded to include uses of BIM in design and construction beyond what is in this Guide, and also uses of BIM for asset and facility management. More information about these additional BIM uses is provided in the BIM Guide series. Please visit the BIM Library to see how the BIM Guides are formulated by topic.
