The RIBA, CPIC and BuildingSmart jointly proposed a definition of BIM for the UK construction industry:
BIM is a digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a facility creating a shared knowledge resource for information about it forming a reliable basis for decisions during its life cycle, from earliest conception to demolition.
In practical terms, this means that a virtual building model is developed and information is collated from manufacturers or through the traditional decision-making process of design. This model is analysed, tweaked, tested and revised, before the building begins on site.
