What is BIM, anyhow?

BIM – Building Information Modeling – is a method used in the construction industry that provides the central management of all project-relevant information for a specific objective. This idea for a central planning method is not new, however, with the basic concept of BIM already around by the 1970s. The process was given the name Building Information Modeling in the early 90s.

The EasternGraphics Story – Part 1: Visions, People and Teamwork

Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others. Jonathan Swift (Anglo-Irish novelist, 1667 – 1745) described with these words, how every entrepreneur must feel at the very beginning of his career.
