Now is the time to implement BIM and explore the possibilities of advancing technologies to address one of the biggest challenges we face – infrastructure.
Building Information Modeling
Using BIM gives meaning to that vast amount of information available to urban citizens, design professionals, and decision makers. The advanced, model-based methodologies provide the ability to analyze complex information. This helps to optimize design and aid individuals, firms and cities to meet their intended goals.
“The test of strength to tomorrow’s infrastructure isn’t whether it is built with asphalt, concrete, or steel, but whether it is built with software, the cloud and data. If we are to meet our infrastructure challenges, we need to seize upon what may be software’s greatest untapped potential-its ability to fundamentally expand what our infrastructure can achieve.” BSA Foundation,

Owners and AEC firms discuss what they are doing differently and why now is the time to change
- Designing a bridge today means thinking about the future use of the bridge
- Construction managers were early adopters of BIM in infrastructure. Learn more about the real life of a construction manager.
- Airports are taking the lead in defining project deliverables –BIM is at the center of these conversations.
- Ports must move beyond thestatus quo. With larger ships,more expectations, and more business, they must grow andadapt their infrastructure.
The future of infrastructure
In order to have resilient and sustainable infrastructure that protects the environment, enables people to thrive, and creates economic value infrastructure owners and AEC firms must change the way they work.
BIM, big data, cloud computing, and analytics are changing how infrastructure is planned, designed, built, and managed. Technology will better connect people, processes, and ideas to create more resilient and sustainable infrastructure.
The future of infrastructure
Having not just informed positions on the range of opportunities that new technologies hold, but incorporating those positions into corporate strategy, will soon be just as much a prerequisite for success as a strong balance-sheet, social license to operate and skilled workforce.

Innovation:Explore the art of the possible.
With the rise of reality computing, hardware and software advances have resulted in the ability to quickly and cost-effectively capture information about the physical world and make it digital.
For the first time we are getting much closer to having a true digital mirror of our physical world.
BIM, connected to the power of the cloud, offers new and more innovative ways of working to help meet these engineering and construction challenges of today and future infrastructure needs.
