Content
Taking a case study approach, this unit focuses on simulations of a project's spatial requirements and construction sequence on site. It investigates tools for manipulating building components to account for the construction process given site limitations and opportunities and generating transparent data for various stakeholders in shared parameters to enhance management and expedite workflows. Students acquire knowledge of visualisation and verification techniques to support coordination of contractual relations and methods of converting data-based information to prepare BIM model information for facilities management.
Outcomes
Students are able to (1) understand how to integrate BIM model with construction planning to coordinate scheduling and analyse and devise thoughtful solutions to spatial, phasing and sequencing problems; (2) demonstrate engagement with BIM model for the purposes of Facilities Management at the completion of the contract; (3) show competency in the reporting and forecasting of project and construction management; and (4) apply technical and analytical skills to undertake contract specific compliance during verification.
Assessment
Typically this unit is assessed in the following ways: (1) digitally-based drawing set and 3D model and (2) report. 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.
