Abstract :

For almost 15 years after the era of Computer Aided-Drafting, technological advances in main-stream building design and construction have been slow until the emergence of Virtual Construction which was later known as Building Information Modeling. This took advantage of the advances technology in the areas of data embedding coupled with enhanced visualization allowing designers (both Architects & Engineers) the ability to more accurately plan, test and evaluate the built environment. The author will share experiences faced in actual projects and in actual companies that he and his team have developed and implemented BIM for ├ó┬?┬? in property developers, design firms and construction companies focusing on commercial projects such as residential condominiums (high-rise, mid-rise), office buildings, retail centers and hospitality canters. Defining and simplifying BIM. What is BIM and what does it do? How relevant is it in the design and development sector? How about in construction? There are numerous definitions of what BIM is when you try to search the internet. Most are valid and a lot suggests it to be complicated. For our discussion however, we will attempt to realistically define BIM while establishing its relevance with our topic for design and construction in commercial properties. During the course the presentation, the author will share key information gathered through actual project experiences through different stages of delivering a commercial building/facility.
