9.45 am - Panel 1 : How can BIM help in creating the optimum building design?

Contractors and companies that all simultaneously plan, design, construct, operate and maintain diverse infrastructures all use BIM to make reliable decisions in real time about building from design, construction to demolition. BIM software allows engineers and designers to essentially create buildings on a computer with rich details, clean layers and references before construction take place on site. With such foresight at the hands of those involved in the project, how can that help in creating the optimum building design?
