This Information Sheet describes the benefits of light steel construction in relation to acoustic performance. Acoustic performance is an important design consideration for many building types, especially housing and other residential buildings, hotels, schools and hospitals. (ED015)

In Building Information Modelling (BIM), a virtual model of a building is created digitally, and is shared with the parties in design, construction, management and operation. The BIM models contain precise geometry and data needed to support the construction, manufacture and procurement activities through which the building is realised. BIM is readily utilised with light steel framing because 3D models are commonly used in design and digital information is used for production of the individual components used in light steel framing systems.
