Content
This unit equips students with advanced understanding of the design potential in BIM environments, from conception to parametric programmability. It expands knowledge through digital speculation in 3D modelling tools relative to other BIM "dimensions": schedule, cost, programming and sustainability. Particular emphasis is placed on how project database information is transformed along supply chain by the contributions of different roles operating in it, preparing students for engaging in a collaborative BIM environment.
Outcomes
Students are able to (1) comprehend the relationship between XML and similar schemas, information databases and interoperability; (2) apply technical and analytical skills to generate coherent digital 3D models to manage construction processes; and (3) show critical engagment with the digital 3D model's scope for mediating the activity of mutiple roles.
Assessment
Typically this unit is assessed in the following ways: (1) digitally-based drawing set and 3D model and (2) group submission. Further information is available in the unit outline.

Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.

  • The availability of units in Semester 1, 2, etc. was correct at the time of publication but may be subject to change.
  • All students are responsible for identifying when they need assistance to improve their academic learning, research, English language and numeracy skills; seeking out the services and resources available to help them; and applying what they learn. Students are encouraged to register for free online support through GETSmart; to help themselves to the extensive range of resources on UWA's STUDYSmarter website; and to participate in WRITESmart and (ma+hs)Smart drop-ins and workshops.
  • Books and other material wherever listed may be subject to change. Book lists relating to 'Preliminary reading', 'Recommended reading' and 'Textbooks' are, in most cases, available at the University Co-operative Bookshop (from early January) and appropriate administrative offices for students to consult. Where texts are listed in the unit description above, an asterisk (*) indicates that the book is available in paperback.
