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.
Integrated BIM-based LCA for the entire building process using an existing structure for cost estimation in the Swiss context
The main objective of this study is to develop an integrated BIM-LCA method for the entire building process by relating it to an established workflow.
Various tools that use a Building Information Modelling (BIM) model for automatic quantity take-off as a basis for Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) have been developed recently. This paper describes the first application of such a BIM-LCA tool to evaluate the embodied global warming potential (GWP)...
In the construction sector, complex constraints are not usually modeled in conventional scheduling and 4D building information modeling software, as they are highly dynamic and span multiple domains. This paper presents a novel method, using semantic web technologies, to model and validate complex scheduling constraints...
Sustainability is becoming a key factor in the decision-making process of infrastructure projects throughout their lifecycles, so this research aims to develop a continuous BIM-based Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for infrastructure projects that utilises an explicit data structure to (1) systematically integrate data from various...
Identification of potential uses of Building Information Modeling (BIM) for construction supply chain management: Preliminary studies
Supply chain construction continues to grow and becomes important in project management. This study aims to identify the potential use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) in construction supply chain management.
