BIM Handbook by Ghang Lee; Paul Teicholz; Rafael Sacks; Chuck Eastman
Publication Date: 2018
BIM offers a novel approach to design, construction, and facility management in which a digital representation of the building product and process is used to facilitate the exchange and interoperability of information in 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. 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. Includes information on the ways in which professionals should use BIM to gain maximum value, collaborative working, national and major construction clients, BIM standards and guides. Contains case studies that clearly illustrate exactly how BIM is applied in a wide variety of conditions. Guides readers through successful implementations, helping them to avoid needless frustration and costs and take full advantage of this paradigm-shifting approach to construct better buildings that consume fewer materials and require less time, labour, and capital resources.
