Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a set of technologies, processes and policies that is revolutionising the construction industry, and BIM capabilities are now crucial for all construction sector professionals. This subject provides students with knowledge of the central concepts of BIM while also building practical skills in the data quality control and data management activities that support the accurate modelling, tagging, exchange, review, and verification of building information models. Students gain insight into the main concepts of Open Data Exchange, Integrated Project Delivery (IPD), and Lean Construction, developing their understanding of the value of model-based data in construction environments characterised by interdisciplinary collaboration, data quality control, and continuous improvement. They also build technical skills in the practical application of vendor-neutral methods of exchanging, checking, coordinating, and reviewing model-based information. The implications of data quality control on downstream applications of BIMD are explored relative to 3D simulation, sustainability, digital twin creation, construction scheduling (4D), and cost estimation (5D).
