Description of module content:

BIM Introduction, standards and legislation
Lectures on this topic will address the concept and principles of BIM including the current legislation and standards.
Open sharable project based design and construction
Lectures will cover methodologies on how to create suitable, disciplined and collaborative ways for managing the production, distribution and quality of construction information and from CAD systems.
Software facilitating collaboration between project professionals
Lectures and practical sessions will analyse a set of BIM models using BIM software that represent different perspectives of a construction project.
Demonstrations of examples of hardware and techniques to strengthen the implenetation of BIM
Practical sessions and demostrations will show the student how BIM assisted hardware can facilitate BIM collaborations and open sharable information of buildings.
Design of a project implementing BIM practices
An opportunity to develop a small building project using BIM software which will improve project communication, facilitate changes and create synergy between design, construction, handover and Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE).
