CSI  &  BIM 

EIP Follows the latest CSI * division format adopted January 1, 2010.

 It is the goal of EIP to enhance other industry standards, not to work on a new platform.

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a new approach to design, construction, and facility management in which a digital representation of the building process is used to facilitate the exchange and interoperability of information in digital format. BIM is beginning to change the way buildings look, the way they function, and the ways in which they are designed and built.** 

EIP and BIM standards are parallel.  Using EIP will prepare you to use requirements of other standards such as BIM, LEED and Step AV.

            See a sample of our LEEDTM library documents.
