BIM puts before designers new challenges


The introduction of digital technologies, including information technology modeling (BIM), changes the profession of a designer and architect, says a partner and the chief engineer of the Krupny Plan bureau, Andrey Mikhailov.

“BIM technologies have significantly complicated the design process. A good designer today is not just an expert in his field, but also to a certain extent a programmer, an IT specialist. Programming skills are necessary, because, in addition to creating information models, an important task of the BIM department is to optimize the design process itself, primarily by improving the efficiency of routine operations, ”said the expert.
