Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a new approach to design, construction, and facility management in which a digital representation of the building process is used to facilitate the exchange and interoperability of information by using digital format. BIM is beginning to change the way buildings look, the way they function, and the ways in which they are designed and built.
BIM Handbook provides an in-depth understanding of BIM technologies, the business and organizational issues associated with its implementation, and the profound advantages that effective use of BIM can provide to all members of a project team.
- Completely updated material covering the current practice and technology in this fast-moving field
- Expanded coverage of lean construction and its use of BIM, with special focus on Integrated Project Delivery throughout the book
- New insight on the ways BIM facilitates sustainable building
- New information on interoperability schemas and collaboration tools
