Building Information Modelling (BIM)

Information Technology is evolving rapidly on a global scale. Triggered by the exponential growth of computer power and available data, industries are seeing a transformation in the way they operate. The construction industry is no exception to this.

BIM is a trendy topic in our industry and our approach for the use of data and information.

Arcadis defines 100% BIM as the processes and collaborative behaviors associated with the creation and sharing of object orientated databases of an asset in its environment, relevant to all stages of the asset’s life cycle including design, construction and operation.


For many years the construction industry has recorded and exchanged project information through paper documents and reports. Coordination and cross-checking of information in this way becomes increasingly difficult as projects become more complex. Now these challenges can be met with the help of BIM.



BIM Uses Summary
BIM Brand

BIM is having a huge impact with regards to the use of data and information within the construction industry. It is affecting not only how natural and built assets are designed and constructed, but how they are operated too.

The use of BIM leads to a better performance by increasing efficiency, providing better quality, reducing production time and waste, lowering costs and bringing life cycle benefits. At the same time, BIM enables collaboration between all stakeholders.

Across the globe we are committed to achieving 100% BIM and a minimum level 2 BIM on all relevant projects. This is based on globally aligned common BIM work processes to ensure we deliver the highest quality solution in a uniform, collaborative way throughout the company.
