Description & Coverage
Description:

In recent years, building information modeling has become a very active research area of construction informatics with investigation of ICT use within construction industry processes and organizations.

The Handbook of Research on Building Information Modeling and Construction Informatics: Concepts and Technologies addresses the problems related to information integration and interoperability throughout the lifecycle of a building, from feasibility and conceptual design through to demolition and recycling stages. Containing research from leading international experts, this Handbook of Research provides comprehensive coverage and definitions of the most important issues, concepts, trends, and technologies within the field.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • 2D computer-aided and BIM estimating
  • Automated building process monitoring
  • BIM and geospatial information systems
  • BIM and urban spatial applications
  • BIM from an architectural design perspective
  • BIM maturity matrix
  • BIMs using semantic and spatial conditions
  • Developing context sensitive BIM based applications
  • Green Building
  • Modeling concepts for BIM
Reviews & Statements

This book represents a step forward in documenting and communicating the business processes we need to implement building information modeling at the technical level.
