AvailabilityLocationMode
Semester 1UWA (Perth)Multi-mode Multiple modes of delivery. Unit includes a mix of online and on-campus study requirements. On campus attendance for some activities is required to complete this unit.
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
Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) digitally-based drawing set and (2) 3D model. 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.
  • Unit readings, including any essential textbooks, are listed in the unit outline for each unit, one week prior the commencement of study. The unit outline will be available via the LMS and the UWA Handbook one week prior the commencement of study. Reading lists and essential textbooks are subject to change each semester. Information on essential textbooks will also be made available on the Essential Textbooks. This website is updated regularly in the lead up to semester so content may change. It is recommended that students purchase essential textbooks for convenience due to the frequency with which they will be required during the unit. A limited number of textbooks will be made available from the Library in print and will also be made available online wherever possible. Essential textbooks can be purchased from the commercial vendors to secure the best deal. The Student Guild can provide assistance on where to purchase books if required. Books can be purchased second hand at the Guild Secondhand bookshop (second floor, Guild Village), which is located on campus.
