Discover the Future of Building Design with ProtaStructure and BIM

Building Information Modeling (BIM) has transformed the construction landscape, making it a cornerstone in today’s building design and modelingworld. BIM, or “what is BIM building information modeling?”, as some newcomers might query, offers a digital representation of both the physical and functional attributes of any edifice. Tools like Autodesk Revit and other BIM software have pioneered this shift. As JKR BIM Day 2023 in Kuala Lumpur approaches, industry professionals will delve into the building information modeling (BIM) application in the Malaysian construction industry.

BIM: The Revolution in Construction

Building information modeling (BIM) is a process involving the generation and management of digital representations of the physical and functional characteristics of places. BIM software, such as those developed by Autodesk, is instrumental in this transformation.

BIM has witnessed significant evolution since its conceptualization in the 1970s. Today, its application spans across the building life cycle, from planning and design to facility operation. This digital transformation aids in cost management, construction management, and even green building projects.

The role of a BIM manager is pivotal. Ensuring all disciplines – architectural, structural, and MEP – are synchronized and discrepancies rectified in the virtual model helps avoid real-world mistakes. In construction management, BIM visualizes projects, ensuring potential problems are addressed before ground is broken.

Asia’s adoption of BIM, especially building information modeling in Malaysia, is noteworthy. Countries like China, Malaysia, Singapore, and Japan have actively integrated BIM, with government mandates further solidifying its significance in the realm of construction and design.


The anticipation for JKR BIM Day 2023 is palpable. With industry leaders like ProtaStructure Suite participating, it’s an unmatched chance to submerge in the latest BIM advancements. Dive into this architectural shift and see how BIM’s evolution can amplify your projects.
