BIM&CO social & collaborative


Créez et publiez vos objets et de données pour le BIM

An open and collaborative platform

The stakes of collaboration

Because BIM is basically a collaborative methodology BIM CO has designed its platform around collaborative features dedicated to the design / broadcast of content (objects and properties).

A "BIM object" is linked to the digital model concept, its design call upon many specialities, from the designer to the various specialists, to design and optimize its geometry (the digital weight of an object is such an essential element), define the various properties for calculations (thermal, acoustic, environmental, operational ...) and optimise the models for the BIM software used in a project. BIM&CO therefore provides features allowing several collaborators to work together to develop objects, discuss the best ways to do so, to call on specialists available on the platform, and also bring together those who have needs for an object (for a project, for a manufacturer) and those who know how or are available to help.

But also because the processes related to BIM are in permanent evolution, exchanges and cooperation between the players allow the necessary responsiveness to modify the objects.

« BIM will require the digitisation of millions of objects; collaboration is the perfect way to do this work. »

Players and functionalities

The first level of collaboration consists in various users of the platform collaborating to offer to the market a wide content of BIM objects meeting the requirements of BIM processes.

Collaborating players:

  • Between data user and data creator
  • Within a group of creators of objects to work on the development of objects (geometry, properties)
  • Within a group of experts in a given field to work on the standardisation of properties
  • Within a project team: architect practice, design office
  • Between manufacturers and data users

The collaborative functionalities notably include:

  • The co-creation of objects in a team with rights management
  • The creation and sharing of properties within private groups
  • The addition of properties for a given application to the platform, and their validation by the community
  • The improvement of objects by users with the agreement of their creator
  • The addition of geometric models to an object
  • Discussions on various topics relative to the objects and their applications
  • Improvement suggestions and requests
