Introduction

Building information modelling (BIM) is a set of interacting policies, processes and technologies that generates a methodology to manage the essential building design and project data in digital format throughout the building's life cycle. BIM, makes explicit, the interdependency that exists between structure, architectural layout and mechanical, electrical and hydraulic services by technologically coupling project organizations together.

Integrated Building Information Modelling is a handbook on BIM courses, standards and methods used in different regions (Including UK, Africa and Australia). 13 chapters outline essential information about integrated BIM practices such as the BIM in site layout plan, BIM in construction product management, building life cycle assessment, quantity surveying and BIM in hazardous gas monitoring projects while also presenting information about useful BIM tool and case studies. The book is a useful handbook for engineering management professionals and trainees involved in BIM practice.

Preface

Building Information Modelling, since it was first coined as BIM, has been increasingly acknowledged and accepted all over the world. It now comes to its tipping point for wider and deeper industry practice, therefore, many key practical implementation problems have been spotted and in turn further triggered new research directions. There is a strong need both from BIM industry and academia to be fully aware of the state-of-the-art developments, by doing that successfully, it certainly can further leverage the knowledge from both sides, and eventually could further increase the productivity, performance and efficiency in construction industry.

This edited book intends to leverage the wider BIM knowledge all over the world, both from BIM industry and academia, to provide a comprehensive BIM research and industry implementation picture and future developing roadmap. In this book, there is a team of BIM specialists in UK, USA, New Zealand, Australia and Taiwan who have reported many integrated BIM solutions and future trends of BIM are discussed to create a holistic road map for BIM future.

The editors would like to thank all the authors for their contribution for the publication of:
