Containing papers presented at the 4th International Conference on Building Information Modelling (BIM) in Design, Construction and Operations, this volume brings together the research of experts from industry, practice and academia. It describes innovative solutions and predictions for future trends across key BIM-related topics.
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 cover such topics as BIM in design coordination; BIM in construction operations; BIM in building operation and maintenance; BIM and sustainability; BIM and collaborative working and practices; BIM-Facilities management integration; BIM-GIS integration; BIM and automation in construction; BIM and health and safety; BIM standards; BIM and interoperability; BIM and life cycle project management; BIM and cultural heritage; BIM and robotics; BIM in risk analysis and management; BIM in building cost control; BIM and building representation; Virtual design and construction (VDC); BIM in the execution phase; BIM for infrastructure development; Digital twins.
