Building Information Modeling (BIM), which is adopted by many countries in Europe, such as the US and the UK, to standardize in public procurement, is also used in countries hosting major projects in the world such as Dubai and Qatar.


BIM, which means the creation of 3 computer model of all kinds of information related to a structure such as Architecture, Statics, Mechanics and Electricity, has no regulations or specifications in our country. 5D BIM makes time and physical progression of the structure more understandable by minimizing problems encountered during field production. The 5-sized building model minimizes costs and costs and facilitates the construction of the project, avoiding time and cost wastage.


5D BIM is being implemented for the first time in a public project in Turkey. Among the projects in our country, 3 billion 710 million pounds in such a large infrastructure investment in the implementation of a first Ül
