Building Information Management is one of two subjects that define the Building Information Modelling (BIM) Specilisation in the Bachelor Design
Students will get introduced to typical workflows of applying BIM on projects by multidisciplinary teams.
- Analysis of process
- BIM Execution Planning
- Collaborative model-sharing
- BIM guidelines, standards and policies
- Interoperability and ‘Open BIM’
- BIM’s impact on project procurement (contract and delivery)
- BIM across the supply chain
Over the duration of the semester, students will get introduced to typical workflows of applying BIM on projects by multidisciplinary teams. As part of this analysis of process, the concept of BIM Execution Planning and collaborative model-sharing will get explained.
Students will learn about guidelines, standards and policies that help regulate information-flow on BIM projects and they will explore how these apply in practice. As part of this topic, students will learn about the concepts behind software interoperability and information-sharing via ‘Open BIM’.
The subject will outline BIM’s impact on project procurement, both in terms of its contractual implications, as well as considering project delivery mechanisms associated to BIM.
Under the ‘whole of life’ topic, students will learn to position BIM efforts by various contributors on projects across the entire supply chain, from clients, consultants, contractors, fabricators, and Facility/Asset Managers.
