BIM CAVE: Immersive Visualization (Building Information Modeling Computer-Aided Virtual Environment)

In a darkened room on the fourth floor of Texas A&M’s Langford Architecture Center, construction science students using Building Information Modeling software can navigate through the bowels of a virtual building while visually immersed amid an array of 12 46 inch monitors.

Unveiled at an Oct. 10 2012 ribbon cutting event, the TAMU Department of Construction Science's newest facility, the “BIM-CAVE,” provides a unique high-tech vantage point for viewing details of an imagined building and its infrastructure, including heating, ventilation, air-conditioning, plumbing, electrical and other systems. “BIM CAVE” is an acronym for “Building Information Modeling Computer-Aided Virtual Environment.”

Come learn about the BIM CAVE from Dr. Julian Kang, holder of the History Maker Homes Endowed Professorship at A&M.
