The digital transition of the AEC sector is a requirement for all professionals involved in, for this reason the topic of Representation strengthens the centrality of its role related to different involved field, thanks to data interoperability. BIM is the methodology that enables the sharing of graphical and alphanumerical information among different professionals. The developed methodology fitted during these years is described for several projects, and it is always composed by three phases: survey and documental research; digital modelling and data interpretation; data exploitation through interoperability. BIM process still does not reach an optimized interoperability level, but this represent the added value of technological innovation for construction industry, as a tool for information sharing.
