Abstract

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is transforming design and construction to achieve greater industrial-type procurement. Both general contractors and reluctantly sub contractors are beginning to adopt both BIM and Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) to improve performance and to reduce waste due to poor information ranging from inaccuracies, delays, misplacement, inconsistencies and uncoordination right through all construction phases. The synchronisation required to achieve this can best be supplied by technologists who have the ability to liaise with all the disciplines found in the construction process without compromising the specific roles found in the design team.
