Building Information Modelling (BIM) and its associated technologies and processes can integrate the project team and facilitate high-quality work. This subject will present BIM as tool for creating and managing building project information during design, construction and operation phase using three-dimensional, real time, dynamic building modelling software. The subject will focus on 3D BIM representation of a simple building using Autodesk Revit Software or Archicad. It will introduce students to 5D BIM quantity extraction with CostX software, model coordination/clash detection with Solibri software and construction sequencing and simulation with Synchro.

Generic skills

  • Upon successful completion of this subject the student will have had the opportunity to develop the following generic skills: • Effective participation as a team member. • 3D Graphical representation of building information • Correct use of technical terminology relating to BIM. • Digital modelling skill • Identification and familiarity with building components • Understanding of construction documentation used in simple building type.
