Possible changes to your unit's learning activities and assessment items

As a result of the Australian Government's and or the ACT Government’s directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, you may find that learning activities and/or assessment items in some units you are studying have changed. These changes will not be updated in the published Unit Outline but will be communicated to you via your unit’s UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. The new learning activities and/or assessment items will continue to meet the unit's learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.

New learning activities and/or assessment items are available on your unit's UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. Please contact your Unit Convener with any questions.

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is designed to enable students to develop a conceptual, technical, critical and practical understanding of how buildings and other structures may be designed, procured, costed; project managed to completion and maintained using 3D and other integrated technology. Students will learn how BIM is useful in supporting investment decision-making related to capital works and infrastructure; how BIM can assist in comparing alternative solutions to design, energy and environmental services, and build method; how BIM can assist with design visualisation for the client; how BIM can assist in the identification of building issues and clashes including quality assurance and safety; and how BIM data can be used to manage the completed facility through to the end of its useful life. The unit includes learning by the critical evaluation, knowledge transfer, advanced technical analysis and experiential case studies.

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Construct a model through the application of advanced knowledge of the principles and technical skills of construction modelling;

2. Apply appropriate procurement processes to a constructed model;

3. Assess the significant principles of BIM-modelling to a construction project on the basis of architectural and engineering drawings, cost estimates and construction program based on the information output from a BIM-model; and

4. Evaluate and transform the application of BIM models to a complete range of design and construction case studies.
