The purpose of the report is to determine how 'digital ready' the construction industry is to meet the opportunities of the digital future.
The research 'Work Health and Safety Management using Building Information Modelling' is a four-phase study aiming to examine the opportunities to achieve WHS objectives through the application of BIM in major construction projects. This technical report presents the outcomes of Phase 2, including the results...
Using 5D models and CBA for planning the foundations and concrete structure stages of a complex office building
The use of 5D models and flowlines were found to be the best alternative, some factors that stand out are scheduling with an effective Lean Production system, synergy with Earn value reports, and automation in quantities and scheduling.
The Operation and Maintenance (O&M) stage is the most expensive phase during the life cycle of a building. Therefore, it is necessary to study the interaction between Lean principles and Building Information Modeling(BIM) Functionalities in the building during O&M phase to optimize resources.
This paper aims to demonstrate that the use of BIM tools enhances collaboration and integration into an IPD project. It starts with a literary review of the topics and then describes the proposed BIM and IPD integration framework, and finally evaluates the metrics obtained.
Lean practices using building information modeling (BIM) and digital twinning for sustainable construction
This investigation aims to find out the recent efforts of utilizing BIM for lean purposes in the last decade by critically reviewing the published literature and identifying dominant clusters of research topics.
The project delivery system and the contracting strategy adopted are the main governing factor that decides the success of a construction project in terms of time, cost, and quality. With the rising complexity of projects and stringent legal regulations, traditional practices turn out to be...
Sustainability and interoperability: an economic study on BIM implementation by a small civil engineering firm
In the area of civil engineering, due to the local nature of many of the software tools used, interoperability problems are frequent, with few studies addressing the economic impact of this, especially in small engineering firms. The main contribution of this paper is a design...
A problem often encountered by contractors is that the information provided is not always equal to the information needed in the Building Information Model (BIM). This applied research showed that design manuals should reflect new project delivery methods to support lean principles for all parties...
This report presents the outcomes of Phase 1 of four phases and identifies solutions for integrating the work health and safety (WHS) aspect in BIM-enabled project planning, design and delivery.
