Technology of Building Information Modelling (BIM)

Course Description:

The BIM technology as applied for the design, the management and the operation of construction works. From 2D design of a construction project to the 3D project information model compiled with intelligent objects. Basic BIM terms and definitions. Open standards for interoperability and organizational requirements. Integration of the architectural, the structural and the E&M BIM Models and model integrity checking. Model uses for project planning and scheduling, cost estimation and construction visualization. BIM for Facility Management.

Learning Objectives

On completion of this course students should be able to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of:

  1. The concepts and processes of Building Information Modeling and of a wide range of BIM applications used in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry.
  2. The Building Information Modeling and model-based engineering workflows in the building and infrastructure lifecycle.
  3. The Construction scheduling and 4D simulation technique as well as the model-based quantity take-off and cost estimation. The construction progress monitoring using a 4D BIM model with cloud and mobile applications.
  4. The Facility information modeling to support operation and maintenance of built assets.
  5. The benefits of using BIM to support project delivery collaboration and team-based workflows in the building and infrastructure lifecycle.

Teaching Methods

Teaching methods Learning is expected to occur by the following processes: (1) Lectures/discussions in the classroom, (2) Assignments from selected topics covered in the class, (3) Reading assignments and presentations from the textbooks and supplementary materials, (4) Term project.
