Originating from the 2019 International Conference on Building Information Modelling this book presents latest findings in the field. This volume presents research from a panel of experts from industry, practice and academia touching on key topics, the development of innovative solutions, and the identification future trends.

The modern construction industry and built environment disciplines have been transformed through the development of new and innovative BIM tools and techniques. These have fundamentally altered the manner in which construction teams operate; the processes through which designs are evolved; and the relationships between conceptual, detail, construction and life cycle stages.

BIM is essentially value-creating collaboration throughout the entire life-cycle of an asset, underpinned by the data attached to them. BIM has far and reaching consequences on both building procurement and infrastructure. This recent emergence constitutes one of the most exciting developments in the field of the Built Environment. These advances have offered project teams multi-sensory collaborative tools and opportunities for new communication structures.

The included papers focus on such topics as: BIM in design coordination, Construction operations; Building operation and maintenance; BIM and sustainability; Collaborative working and practices; Facilities management integration and GIS integration; Automation in construction; Health and safety; BIM and interoperability; Life cycle project management; Cultural heritage; BIM and Robotics; Risk analysis and management and Emergency analysis, planning and management.
