Building Information Modelling (BIM) is designed to enable students to develop a conceptual 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 case studies.

Learning Outcomes

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

1. Apply knowledge of the principles and practices of construction modelling and contribute to the cooperation and organisation of a BIM project team;

2. Construct models and manage procurement processes to achieve successful outcomes;

3. Assess the basic 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 the application of BIM models to construction and design case studies.
