Building Information Modeling 1st edition by Yusuf Arayici

building-information-modeliControl of time, cost and waste is of paramount concern to all parties involved in construction projects. Many problems relating to issues of control result from the inadequate communication of information within contracting organisations or amongst contracting and other design organisations. The amount of information involved in any construction project from start to finish should not be underestimated. At any particular stage of the project, different types of information are required by various people in various formats. For example, in large industrial projects it has been revealed that more than 50% of site construction problems are attributed to design or communication of the design and more than 50% of contract modifications are related to design deficiencies. This suggests the need for early efforts by all participants to identify and resolve potential problems ensuring delivery of complete and correct design and construction documents. In this book the readers will read Introduction to Building Information Modeling (BIM), The construction industry and its challenges, Origins of BIM, What is building information modeling? Overview of requirements for UK government level to BIM, BIM tools and technologies, CAD technologies, Parametric modeling technologies, Review of major BIM tools in the AEC industry, BIM Library, Interoperability, Free BIM tools, Uses of BIM, Business process re-engineering, References.
