“BIM or Building Information Modelling is a process for creating and managing information on a construction project across the project lifecycle”.
BIM has been around since the introduction of computing. As early as 1957, a computer-aided machining (CAM) software, known as Pronto, was designed for commercial purposes. However, it was not until 1977 that Charles Eastman designed the first CAD program to possess a modern BIM platform. The use of BIM was not very popular until the year 2002 when Autodesk and other software got involved in the field and came up with the present-day 3D plans.
