BIR Leaflet 0 – What is BIM

Building Information Council (Bouw Informatie Raad - BIR)

The Building Information Council (Bouw Informatie Raad, or BIR) promotes widespread application of BIM in the Dutch construction and infrastructure industry. BIR is a unique partnership between various stakeholders in the construction industry, where the members represent both their construction industry segment and their own company. They make practical agreements that are in the interests of the entire industry and ensure these are implemented within their own segment. The partnership focuses on implementing BIM to strengthen the quality, continuity and competitive position of the Dutch construction and infrastructure industry. The resources cotained on the website help to accelerate the development and adoption of BIM within the Netherlands.

This two page leaflet from BOUW illustrates and explains in simple terms, ‘What is BIM?’. The document is for sharing with all parties in the construction sector and articulates why they should be using BIM on their project alongside importantly how to get started. This leaflet also contains a reference to the BIM uses document, also contained in this Information Collection.
