The processes at the construction stages are characterized by considerable complexity due to the large amount of information contained in the design and construction documentation, and its interaction. Information management requires engineering data management systems and an object information model. Technology of building information modeling is based on the development and use of a virtual model of a construction object in the form of a three-dimensional information model and related documents. The article analyzes the Polterovich-Tonis evolutionary model as applied to information modeling processes in Russia. The functional approach to the modeling of complex project management systems in construction and visual modeling of construction objects is considered. Links between various design and calculation systems, estimated systems, scheduling and resource management systems are revealed. A formal description of the conceptual model of an integration information system for design options in construction and a strategy of data exchange between the system for automation of accounting and control and the BIM-system of visual presentation was developed.
