The notion of a «digital mock-up» (or Building Information Modelling-(BIM)) relates to the production and management of digital information in the construction sector.
It includes parametric and structured representations with (3D models) that facilitate the exchange of digital information between participants in the same operation.
Thus, in our increasingly virtual world, managing a project «in BIM» consists of doing what was previously done on paper via digital tools.
Such tasks include : design, 2D and 3D drawing, pricing, acoustic, thermal, structural and environmental modelling, asset management, planning, deconstruction, waste management etc.
In order to develop a straw construction, 12 «typical walls» were therefore modelled in BIM as part of the UP STRAW project.
