At the present time for modern building and construction industry, building information modeling (BIM) process enhances the structural engineer's workflow and can place them to be actively involved in the sustainable design of a building. BIM is defined as an integrated process that allows professionals to investigate a project's key physical and functional characteristics digitally - before it's built. The AutoCAD BIM solutions are based on synchronized, more reliable, high-quality information created with Autodesk software. By using BIM, design professionals can: # Design - original, intelligent projects from the earliest stages # Visualize, Simulate, and Analyze - real-world appearance, performance and cost # Document - projects more accurately and efficiently # Deliver - projects faster, more economically and with reduced environmental impact BIM for structural engineer use this same approach for the entire structural engineering process. The engineer's virtual structural model can be used for synchronization with architects, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineers, and civil engineers. That same digital model is incorporated with analysis, design, and construction documentation, and is used as the basis for digital design-to-fabrication strategies and construction. Throughout BIM, structural engineers have the capability to track material quantities and explore design options that at last result in a more sustainable design. At the core of the structural engineering BIM process is the Autodesk software. BIM enable structural engineers to minimize waste and maximize the recycle of materials. Structural engineer investigate building design options for long term use and future flexibility, maximizing design efficiency and minimizing waste and overall alive energy. The loaded intelligent information created through a BIM process can also be used for simulation and analysis--enabling structural engineers to make improved decisions and optimize the structure for stability, flexibility and long term use. We can observe industry trends such as BIM, incorporated project delivery (IPD), sustainable design and design-to-fabrication ongoing to drive the structural engineering market. As the market moves in this direction, it is our expect that sustainability will become a part of the establishment for all successful building projects with every material in the building process preferred for its environmental factors and, once the building life ends, all building materials recycled. A sustainable prospect is one that we can all aspire to.
