BIM IQ® is a computer-aided, three-dimensional interactive design and energy application for the architectural and construction industry. BIM IQ® allows architects to make a change to the architectural glass selection or mullion design on any given project and then see those changes from any view-interior or exterior-in its exact location, any day of the year. BIM IQ® is available exclusively from Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope®.
