Building Information Modelling (BIM) in Design, Construction, and Operations contains the proceedings of the first in a planned series of conferences dealing with design coordination, construction, maintenance, operation and decommissioning. The book gives details of how BIM tools and techniques have fundamentally altered the manner in which modern construction teams operate, the processes through which designs are evolved, and the relationships between conceptual, detail, construction and life cycle stages. The papers contributed by experts from industry, practice and academia, debate key topics, develop innovative solutions, and predict future trends. The interdisciplinary nature of the contents and the collaborative practices discussed, so important within the built environment, will appeal to those engaged in design, surveying, visualisation, infrastructure, real estate, construction law, insurance, and facilities management. Topics covered include: BIM in design coordination; BIM in construction operations, BIM in building operation and maintenance; BIM and sustainability; BIM and collaborative working and practices; BIM health and safety and BIM-facilities management integration, among others.The construction industry is still facing increasing demands for efficiency and these are set against its fragmentation and ... The ability to manage the knowledge will not only help to prevent the reinvention of the wheel but will also serve as the ... Thus a combined approach a one that incorporates people, process and technology a will deliver a more complete solution. ... It is anticipated that the captured knowledge will avoid time waste, reduce cost as a result of seamless delivery, andanbsp;...
