The built environment sector is full of debate about BIM. In these times it is crucial to be clear on the current and future state of BIM.

This document is based on key points from the RICS guidance note 'International BIM implementation guide'. It gives a brief introduction to BIM for those who have yet to work with it. It looks at:

- what BIM is;
- the technology behind BIM;
- how BIM is used in project delivery; and
- the implications of BIM on organisations.
