What’s BIM?

BIM (Building Information Modelling) is the digitization of the construction sector, utilizing three-dimensional BIM objects to design, construct and manage built assets. BIM models contain intelligent data that allows for highly coordinated documentation and model geometry for higher-quality and cost-effective construction projects. Instead of 2D design and drawing, BIM is the new paradigm, fostering new cooperation, innovation and building lifecycle savings.

Our mission at the BLEA is to empower the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) industry in East Africa and beyond with cutting-edge technology and high-quality construction products.

BIM & Digital Modelling

We create digital models of products and structures using industry-proven BIM standards. We translate existing CAD designs and building plans to BIM models for use by AEC professionals. We also work with manufacturers to enable them to get their products BIM-ready and easily accessible to industry professionals as BIM objects.
