Setting new trends of integrated Building Information Modelling (BIM) for construction industry
MetadataShow full item record
Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to set new trends of integrated Building Information Modelling (BIM) for the construction industry. BIM has been accepted by construction to some extent as an innovative approach/technology to improve project performance in the aspects of productivity, efficiency and safety. However, maximisation BIM requires strategic research direction to drive this technology across the full spectrum of the project life cycle. Design/methodology/approach - This paper identifies the new trends for adopting BIM in the aspect of integration within Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) sectors. Findings - Research findings identify three stages where project performance can be improved by using BIM: pre-construction phase, construction phase and the maintenance/operation phase. Originality/value - BIM must evolve to be fully integrated with other technologies, thereby contributing to project performance in various stages of project life cycle.
