All decisions made would always rely on good, timely, and correct data. Usage of BIM models in terms of Building Information Management can support all decision through data gathering, sharing, and using across all disciplines and all Life Cycle steps. It particularly significantly improves possibilities and level of life cycle costing. Experience and knowledge stored in data models of BIM, describing user requirements, best practices derived from other projects and/or research outputs will help to understand sustainability in its complexity and wholeness. It obviously means that we are facing much more than drafting in 3D only, and project participants are further challenging, what is the topic of both this paper, and further research. Knowledge of objects, their behavior, and other characteristics has high impact on whole building life cycle. Other structured and unstructured knowledge is rightfully added (e.g. historically based experience, needs and requirements of users, investors, needs for project and objects revisions) Grasping of all attributes into system for collection, managing and time control of knowledge. Further important findings lie in the necessity of understanding managing knowledge needs with diverse and variable ways, when BIM maturity levels are advanced, as defined by Bew and Richards (2008). All expenses in the first phases (project costs, cost of new materials, cost of the quality of delivery) will or may be assessed and better understood in long time horizon. There are also barriers and obstacles in using the BIM model, how people together with new technology may overcome these risky issues is other crucial point. BIM also can help in optimization of materials and energy use and minimization of negative impact on environment.
