Try our new GAME!

A user friendly tool addressed to beginners, to simulate the differences between a traditional process and a BIM process in building and construction.
We have selected easy instruments, connected to the most famous building game: Lego game.
No technical competences in using BIM are required to play the game.
You can play the game in two way: traditional and BIM
The aim is to finish as quickly as possible your building
which kind of process will be the faster? and why?

What is BIM?

What is BIM?

BIM can be defined as a process involving the generation and management of digital representations of physical and functional characteristics of places. BIM softwares are used to plan, design, construct, operate and maintain many kinds of buildings and infrastructures. In Europe BIM is becoming more and more studied in VET schools, VET courses and university courses and applied in companies. It is becoming a new specialization with a high rate of employability.

In Italy this methodology is not jet sufficiently known and spread, while in other EU countries, especially in northern Europe, BIM is already very well know and used: Finland …
