Allplan BIM 2008 for Building Contractors: Efficient Building Information Modeling

Your benefits at a glance:

  • Visualization of buildings
  • Use of building data for interdisciplinary solutions such as bills of quantities, structural engineering, building services design
  • Use of building data for building and real estate management as part of facility management
  • Continuous use of data from early design stages through construction to building and real estate management

Optimize your planning process to achieve maximum success.

Are you confronted with the daily challenge of streamlining the process from planning to management of buildings and real estate? Allplan BIM 2008 can help you achieve an integrated, highly efficient work process.

"I find working in 3D is much too complex."

Take the opportunity and try it yourself.

A unique feature of Allplan BIM 2008 is that it offers the user the flexibility to work in the most suitable manner depending on the type of project or the current project phase. From simple 2D design to 3D modeling and component-oriented building modeling, Allplan offers an integrated solution covering all phases of CAD. You can decide how you wish to work. Allplan allows you to switch between 2D and 3D freely. Adopt the most suitable working method or combine methods as required within a project.

"The more demanding the design, the greater the danger of making mistakes. Is that not so?"

Allplan features a unified database for high flexibility.

Allplan BIM 2008 offers a new technology that enables you to switch between various scales, layouts and details, not just for components, but 2D elements as well. Using a uniform data model, you can create any number of plans or analyses depending on your requirements. The results are more accurate, the rate of errors reduced.


This saves time and money and helps you to create brilliant, effective presentations.

"And what’s happening with quantity take-off and construction process planning?"

Innovative Technology for your Innovations.

Allplan BIM 2008 and Allplan BCM 2008 use new technology to allow the virtual building model to interact with quantity take-off and construction process planning.

Thus the quantities can be calculated from the building model and then assigned to items in the bill of quantities. The program simply links the information in the bill of quantities to the construction planning processes. All three participants; draughtsman, quantity surveyors and construction planners can all use the same base data at the same time, yet work independently from one another.

Meanwhile, highly relevant analyses, such as cost outflows, can be produced from the various sets of linked data.
