Building Information Modelling
Collaborative working method for all participants involved in the construction sector.
Saint-Gobain has been involved in digital modelling and then in BIM (Building Information Modelling) since 2004. BIM is based on the founding principle of sharing information in real time between all of the participants involved in a construction project. Thanks to BIM, the participants involved can view a digital model of a future building before it takes shape physically. The main aim of these new tools is to make building sector interlocutors’ lives easier, by helping them to work more collectively, by making their construction sites more secure, and by saving time.
