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. »
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.
The collaborative functionalities notably include:
