      Date Posted: 4/1/2017 12:00:00 AM This article highlights the advantages of Lean Construction (‘Lean') and Building Information Modelling ('BIM') that have received much attention. Individually, each promises transformative and beneficial effects on the construction process, prompting researchers to consider the possibility of synergies between the two. An early example is the hypothetical ‘Lean-BIM Interaction Matrix' of Rafael Sacks and his collaborators. In this, Lean principles are set against BIM functionality and synergies predicted. Early tests of the proposals were through retrospective case studies. Further promising results have been demonstrated in construction projects in the USA. This suggests that similar results might be possible elsewhere, prompting the present UK study. The methodological approach is case-study based on projects where the contractor purports to be using (i) Lean principles, (ii) BIM, and (iii) both. Evidence will be collected through a variety of means (including interviews, documents, and observation). The research is currently at a stage where data has been collected from the first few case-study projects.This article is available on IGI Global’s premier research database, InfoSci-Journals.

      Date Posted: 4/1/2017 12:00:00 AM The construction industry is regarded as a major contributor to environmental emissions, due to extensive usage of resources and the waste products produced. This article presents a building information modeling (BIM)-based model that is capable of measuring six types of emissions for different activities of construction projects. The paper investigates eight multi-criteria decision-making (MCDM) techniques for ranking alternatives based on project time; project life cycle cost; project environmental impact; and primary energy consumed by different activities. Three group decision- making techniques are performed to provide consensus and final ranking of alternatives. The Monte Carlo simulation is implemented in order to account for the discrepancy in the calculation of greenhouse gases produced from buildings. Also, a case study of academic buildings is introduced in order to demonstrate the practical features of the proposed model.This article is available on IGI Global’s premier research database, InfoSci-Journals.

      Date Posted: 4/1/2017 12:00:00 AM In 2011, a UK government mandate stated that all public-sector construction projects must conform to BIM level 2. As the owner of one of the largest estate portfolios in Europe the NHS will be heavily impacted by the introduction of the BIM mandate. The aim of this article is to explore how prepared NHS facilities managers (FM) are for the introduction of the BIM 2016 mandate. To do this an online questionnaire survey and face to face interviews were conducted to identify NHS FM professionals' awareness, understanding, experience, and opinions of BIM and organisational readiness. Analysis of the primary data shows that NHS FM professionals are underprepared to engage fully with BIM in a competent manner with many failing to demonstrate knowledge of the fundamental principles of BIM. By developing an understanding of NHS FM professionals current skills, knowledge, experience and opinions with regards to BIM this article aims to help future studies understand what key elements should be considered by public sector organisations when establishing a BIM for FM implementation framework.This article is available on IGI Global’s premier research database, InfoSci-Journals.

      Date Posted: 4/1/2017 12:00:00 AM Lack of qualified BIM professionals is a key BIM challenge that affects specific organisations and on a more macro scale, individual countries. A salient solution to this problem is the provision of better BIM education. This article represents the initial work into the implementation of BIM in the Dominican Republic, a country affected by different challenges in regard to BIM implementation, with a key issue surrounding the lack of BIM education. The aim of the article is the development of a conceptual BIM education framework which suggests strategies to be implemented in Academia and the industry for the delivery of BIM education to all the construction parties involved in a project, including the client. A literature review about BIM education and training and the revision of BIM education frameworks worldwide helped in its development. The framework is beneficial to this country as it is intended to be part of a toolkit, the final outcome of a PhD research on this country. However, it can be consulted by any country or organisation interested in developing BIM education strategies.This article is available on IGI Global’s premier research database, InfoSci-Journals.

      Date Posted: 1/1/2017 12:00:00 AM BIM concepts and workflows offer an unquestionable potential in the academic environment as contributory teaching methodology, so to improve the over-all teaching and learning process in the degree. Therefore, it must certainly develop an optimised implementation format to successfully undertake the challenge of proving capable to adapt to current academic formats and resources. In the Bachelor´s Degree of Architecture at UEM a framework of implementation of BIM methodology has been configured in a first experimental phase with valuable and transposable data. The implementation framework pivots on four main focuses: delimited teaching activities in conventional subjects, integrated project development in interdisciplinary workshops, extracurricular tools training and finally specific postgraduate programs and research projects. This exhaustive arrangement of academic formats outlines a global framework to achieve the highly diverse requirements of a gradual implementation, crystallizing in a coherent and synergic learn flow.This article is available on IGI Global’s premier research database, InfoSci-Journals.

      Date Posted: 1/1/2017 12:00:00 AM Building Information Modelling (BIM) is part of a wider digital innovation that has arrived as an epochal transition in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) Industry. Although the benefits of BIM within the supply-side of the industry have been widely explored, its impact on the value for clients and end-users has been researched in a limited manner so far. The paper reviews some of the BIM-related technologies which could effectively support client and end-user involvement in the briefing process. Four main types of information technologies are considered and grouped as (1) rule-based validation tools (i.e. briefing software; rule-based model checking) and (2) simulation-based validation tools (i.e. gamification, immersive virtual environments). Those technologies are analysed and compared in order to identify what has already been done, possible future trends, evaluate their integration in the briefing process and, finally, take into account both their advantages and disadvantages in supporting the effective involvement of the demand-side of construction in digitally-enabled processes.This article is available on IGI Global’s premier research database, InfoSci-Journals.

      Date Posted: 1/1/2017 12:00:00 AM The implementation of BIM in higher education (HE) curricula for architecture and engineering is limited and does not meet the demand for competency in the industry. BIM education is mostly initiated by enthusiasts offering software training in isolated courses. The transfer of educational experiences is limited and partial. This conceptual paper explores the use of pedagogical frameworks to enable the systematic implementation of BIM in higher education. The following pedagogical frameworks are explored: (a) Integrated Design and Delivery Solutions (IDDS), (b) Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK), and (c) Trinity of BIM as building information model/ -modelling/ -management (BIM3P). BIM-related methods are connected to the pedagogical framework to illustrate applicable implementation. This enable BIM to be integrated into most architecture and engineering subjects without separate training in software. Focus is given to understanding relevant information to support design and fact-based decisions. The approach is learning BIM for learning architecture and engineering.This article is available on IGI Global’s premier research database, InfoSci-Journals.

      Date Posted: 1/1/2017 12:00:00 AM Interoperability is a key factor for BIM and helps to simplify the communication and the cooperation between different actors during the project life-cycle. IFC appears as the best option to exchange data between different software platforms. The purpose of this paper is to offer a proposal for exchanging data by merging IFC-based BIM models. We consider a BIM project model like a large system of multi modules where each part represents a structure (building, road, bridge and tunnel) and should be completed by an IFC model. This article presents a numerical tool which allows the co-design step through a Graphical User Interface (GUI) developed in Java language using the IfcToolsProjects libraries. This work is situated in non-automatic merging models being problematic. The proposal is clearly a co-design assistance. This Interface allows the merging of many buildings represented by different IFC files and produces a new IFC-based buildings complex model. The result is fully exploitable without any data loss. The new merging approach avoids the disadvantages of the “linking” function.This article is available on IGI Global’s premier research database, InfoSci-Journals.
