Abstract

European and Mediterranean cities and landscapes are complex territorial systems characterized by an inestimable cultural and natural heritage, which can particularly benefit from holistic approaches for their sustainable development. Nowadays, digital tools and innovative methods can provide valuable support to pursue the above-mentioned target. Based on both methodological research and practical application, the paper presents a BIM-based lifecycle-oriented approach to information modelling and management of an existing building set in an urban historical context. Investigating advanced software solutions and workflows in the preparatory phases of a building project, it takes into account, as integral parts of a BIM ecosystem, not only the technological aspects, but also the process and organisational/ cultural ones.
