BIM in Principle and in Practice, 2nd Edition


Covering the principles behind building information modelling (BIM), its current use in practice and how it may develop in the future, BIM in Principle and in Practice provides construction professionals with an overview of this emerging field to enable informed discussions with clients and colleagues.

BIM is a managed approach to the creation, collation and exchange of shared intelligent and structured data and information across a project. As its use grows there is an increasing need for construction practitioners to understand the principles behind it and how work practices must change to accommodate it. Full collaboration across the entire project team and standardised, well-structured information are at the heart of BIM and will enable enormous efficiencies in the construction industry. BIM in Principle and in Practice is intended to assist in understanding BIM and how it can be used and to provide answers to many of the common questions.

Benefits of BIM in Principle and Practice, Second Edition:
• Completely up-to-date information on the emerging practice of BIM to inform construction professionals
• Applicable to the UK and international market for companies working internationally
• Practical guide to contemporary BIM principles and use, with illustrative case studies
• Relevant to all companies and all projects, whatever their size
• Provides a vision for the future of BIM development and new forms of contract that may be required
• Updated to include UK Government Strategy for 2016 – 2025, updates to PAS 1192 and BS 1192 documents, Digital Scanning of existing buildings, Digital Plan of Works, Other BIM Model types for specific purposes (services, IT, electrics etc.), Development of BIM Protocols and ‘contracts’ and/or contract terms, Insurances being used, the development of BIM in the EU and internationally, and to include case studies

Providing insight for all construction professionals – consultants, contractors, sub-contractors, designers, architects, project managers, surveyors, site managers, facilities managers, lawyers – and their clients, and relevant to all companies and projects, whatever their size and geographical market, the advice and illustrative case studies within this book form the ultimate practical guide to current practice and a valuable vision for the future.
