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 discussion 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 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 provide answers to many of the common questions.

BIM in Principle and in Practice:
  • Stresses the importance of integrated practice and collaboration and interoperability of data and any models
  • Sets out the details that a typical Protocol Document may contain, to provide the project team with a road map to understanding the aims and objectives of the BIM, its rules and how it may be assembled
  • Provides comprehensive consideration of the legal issues surrounding implementation of BIM on a project

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.
