Content The BIM environment is an advanced and integrated environment for the management of complex building projects with a sophisticated capacity to deliver outcomes for all stakeholders. The knowledge required to manage this complexity requires new skills within the context of different building typologies. This unit develops research skills to address novel challenges generated by building projects and deliver various complex data sets in a single federated model, namely, comprehensive BIM Briefs, BIM Execution Plans and BIM Sub Plan.
Outcomes Students are able to (1) understand the use of BIM to manage large scale projects, including the production of a BIM brief, Execution plan, Construction plans and Clash detection; (2) apply technical and analytical skills to federate BIM model with consultant data; (3) demonstrate research skills to innovate solutions during development and execution phase of a project; and (4) communicate effectively in a cross-disciplinary BIM environment.
