BIM Modeling Technology For Sustainable Design

For the modern construction industry, the BIM (Building Information Modeling) process enhances the civil engineer workflow and allows him to participate actively in sustainable building planning. BIM is an integrated process that allows professionals to digitally examine the main physical and functional features of a project before it is created. 

The AutoCAD BIM solution is built on coordinated, more reliable, and high-quality information built with products based on AutoCAD Civil 3D software and Autodesk Revit BIM from

With BIM, designers can:

  • Design – innovative and smart projects from the start
  • Visualize, simulate and analyze – real-world looks, performance, and price
  • Documents – Drafts are more accurate and efficient
  • Delivery – makes it faster, more economical, and more environmentally friendly

BIM for civil engineers uses the same approach for the entire civil engineering process. Engineer's virtual structural model can be used for coordination with mechanical, architects, electrical and plumbing engineers, and even civil engineers. 

The same digital model is integrated into analysis, design, and construction documentation and serves as the basis for digital design and production strategies. BIM provides civil engineers with the ability to track material quantities and explore design options which ultimately lead to more sustainable designs.

At the heart of the BIM process in building construction is the Autodesk Revit Structure software. With BIM and Revit Structure, civil engineers can minimize waste and maximize material reuse. With Revit Structure, civil engineers explore the possibility of designing buildings for long-term usage and future flexibility, maximizing design productivity, and reducing total waste and energy. 

The extensive intelligent information generated by the BIM process can also be used for simulation and analysis. This enables civil engineers to make more informed decisions and optimize structures for durability, flexibility and long-term use.
