BIM for Infrastructure Reaches Maturity with Viable Alternatives from Multiple Vendors

Course Information

BIM for Infrastructure software has made significant advancements in recent years and has now matured as a well-established tool in the industry. While the software is similar to BIM for building design, it has several unique features that cater to the specific needs of non-building infrastructure projects. BIM for Infrastructure software facilitates enhanced communication and collaboration among project stakeholders, easing information sharing and informed decision making. There are several vendors that offer BIM for Infrastructure software, including ALLPLAN, Autodesk and Bentley. Non-proprietary data formats, like Industry Foundation Classes (IFC 4.3), play a crucial role in ensuring successful project delivery by allowing seamless collaboration among different stakeholders and software programs from different vendors. BIM for Infrastructure is currently used on many DOT projects, including the Delaware DOT’s Taylor’s Bridge Replacement.
