The term Building Information Modeling (BIM) has been around for awhile, but in practice, BIM is still in its infancy and is still weighted heavily towards the front end of building design and construction.

There are claims that BIM is a game changer where everything will be done differently, and nothing short of full adoption of BIM with the multitude dimensions it claims to cover will suffice.
With the help of BIM, collaborating designers and engineers can in short order make more informed and better coordinated decisions about to what extent a dysfunctional old building should be preserved, remedied or replaced.
