Implementing Successful Building Information Modeling
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is the process of generating and managing building data during a building's lifecycle. Today, more and more architectural firms have adopted BIM software and processes because it allows them to produce measurably more work of better quality, in shorter periods of time. Featuring case studies of firms of all sizes, this practical resource shows professionals how to implement BIM in the building industry around the globe. The book explains how BIM allows the data collected to plan, design and build projects to continue to be used and added to during the occupied life of the building. Readers also become knowledgeable about the changing role of architects within the building industry as they embed BIM in their workflow. From interoperability and open standards, knowledge sharing, and gathering data, to the BIM software suite, implementation planning, and project workflow, this authoritative volume provides a thorough understanding of key aspects of BIM that practitioners need to understand.
