Building Information Model (BIM) is  a radical new approach in the architectural and civil engineering, consists in the creation of computer model of building, representing  all information about the future object. Our company began to use BIM as main planning method in 2006 in the development of  youth crisis centre in Saratov. Construction of virtual model of building, including all utility lines was made based on software product ArchiCAD.
