Description of module content:

The module focus on the significance of digitisation and information management in the built environment. It encompasses a broad spectrum of topics about the creation, extraction and management of digital data throughout various stages of construction, starting from site analysis and extending to modelling design, structural systems, material options, and modern construction processes.Within this module, you gain a comprehensive understanding of how digital technologies and tools can enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of architectural projects. You learn about the process of capturing and analysing site data using advanced digital surveying techniques and how digital modelling software can be utilised to develop designs and detail drawings. Additionally, you will become familiar with the integration of digital data across various disciplines involved in the construction process. You learn and evaluate how different professionals, including architects, engineers and contractors can collaborate seamlessly through BIM platforms.
