BIM SIM Group

BIM SIM Group is a research team within the College of Architecture at Texas A&M University that focuses on building information modeling (BIM) and simulation (SIM). Our research projects cover various topics and scales. In our world, which is laden with scientific evidence, information and simulation are rapidly gaining more value. The human mind has a limit in information processing. We believe the application of BIM technologies will enable designers to push this limit.
