Description & Coverage
Description:

The construction industry is amidst a digital transformation that is focused on addressing well-documented issues and calls for significant improvements and changes through increased productivity, whole-life value, client focus, reduction of waste, and being more sustainable. The key aspect to driving change and transformation is the education and upskilling of the required workforce towards developing the required capacities. Various approaches can be taken to embed digital construction within education and through collaborative efforts in order to drive change and facilitate improvements.

The Handbook of Research on Driving Transformational Change in the Digital Built Environment focuses on current developments in practice and education towards facilitating transformation in the built environment. This book provides insight, from a practice perspective, in relation to the client’s understanding, digitally enabled collaboration, interoperability and open standards, and maturity/capability. Covering topics that include digital transformation and construction, digitally enabled infrastructure, building information modelling, collaborative digital education, and the digital built environment, this book is an ideal reference source for engineers, professionals, and researchers in the field of digital transformation as well as doctoral scholars, doctoral researchers, professionals, and academicians.

He is actively engaged in the digital transformation of the UK construction industry through affiliations at international, national, and regional levels, the current Chair of the UK BIM Academic Forum, and Director of Construct IT For Business, an industry-led non-profit making collaborative membership-based network. He is also Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Digital Innovation in the Built Environments (IJDIBE).
Dr. Mark Shelbourn is the Head of the Centre for Built Environment at Birmingham City University and is responsible for the leadership and management of the Centre. Mark is an executive board member of the Council of Heads of Built Environment (CHOBE), and is the Region 8 Director of the Associated Schools of Construction and my ongoing work with the Academic Interoperability Coalition in Digital Education in the Built Environment. Mark is an active member of the Behaviours4Collaboration (B4C) group. The group is aiming to make the industry aware of the benefits of using collaborative working activities in projects within the industry. Mark is the leader of many digitally enhanced modules at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. These modules bring together over 25years of research and enterprise activities, industry contacts and case studies to bring a fresh look at Digital construction into the classroom.
