The article focuses on the use of building information modeling (BIM) for infrastructure engineering projects throughout the planning, designing, and building stages. It states that the application of BIM to conceptual design enables the creation of the representation of the proposed project that allows to better communicate the intention of the design to stakeholders and design team. It discusses the importance of collaboration to address challenges of using BIM in an infrastructure project.
