Explore the Future of BIM In India 

BIM-Building Information Modeling is a valuable tool in the hands of anyone who works in the 

construction industry. Undoubtedly, the idea of collaborative working is growing wider and 

popular through the years. Therefore, it is critical for all construction firms to be aware of the 

various BIM capability levels. Thus, before we go further, it would be beneficial to try to define what 

BIM actually means? 

BIM is Building Information Modeling. To make it simple, BIM leads to a collaborative system of 

working based on the creation and exchange of data information between the different project 

participants. Based on this information the complete cycle of a building, from conception to 

completion, you can manage. In that cases, it is an essential part of the decision-making process. 

BIM started to gain attention in the 1990s, and it has evolved remarkably during the last decades. 

The future of BIM 

The future is now for- Building Information modeling, identified usually by the acronym "BIM." 

In dozens of countries, BIM is already in progress. BIM has the potential for exciting worldwide 

development. The BIM managers can design, build and manage the buildings and other 

constructions from roads and bridges according to public conveniences throughout their life 


“BIM is a process,” “It is not a portion of the software. However, there is plenty of software that 

associates in BIM, and it is the process of getting all the parts assembled digitally and linking them 

to give you a real-life version of building construction. It allows you to visualize a building before it 

is constructed. 

As a global concept, BIM is Recommended for the first time in the 1970s, meanwhile, that  

phrase “Building Information Modelling” was not bolted in until the early 2000s. BIM software was 

pioneered then by merchants such as Autodesk, which are still major players. 

Check the use of building information in the future. 

On the micro level of specific building projects, with BIM plan expenses may go up; Construction 

expenses often fall; yet these aspects still represent only 20% of the total costs a building owner 

suffers from idea to demolition. The other 80% comes under operations. 

The actual value of BIM is the information that it presents you during the existence of that 


“If you asked me, what is the future of BIM? Then it is really how we will utilize all the information 

that we have collected during the design and construction and also turn it into something that the 

end user, and the handlers of that facility, can utilize it to solve difficulties on an on-going basis.” 


We have fabulous future of BIM in India. We still need to hit the hard rock to make it better. At 

present we are working on making this happen. The construction industry will change completely 

within the next 4–5 years. If not, BIM Experts are here to make this happen. 

The Indian construction industry is vast and contributes to agriculture second highest in its GDP. 

Our construction market is $1.8 trillion, third highest in the world after China and Japan.
