PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE DIRECTIONS IN BUILDING INFORMATION MODELLING (BIM)

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a collaborative way of working, underpinned by the digital technologies which unlock more efficient methods of designing, creating and maintaining assets. BIM embeds key product and asset data and a 3D computer model that can be used for effective management of information throughout a project lifecycle – from earliest concept through to operation.

BIM has been described as a game-changing ICT and cultural process for the construction sector. A number of countries globally are starting to realise the opportunities it brings and are now investing in developing their own capability. For example, the UK has embarked upon a progressive programme of mandated use of fully collaborative Building Information Modelling for Government projects by 2016.

The Computer Integrated Construction (CIC) Research Group in the Department of Architectural Engineering at the Pennsylvania State University has recently developed guides which present systematic approaches for project teams and facility owners to more effectively plan the integration of BIM throughout the project, organization and the lifecycle of a facility. Professor Chimay Anumba will share insights that he has gained over the years including during his research and teaching at PSU
