This paper proposes a novel ‘bottom-up’ object-oriented approach for automated model checking and the corresponding plugin prototype. The approach and the prototype enable four key processes: (i) define and interpret the requirement rules, (ii) prepare the BIM object data, (iii) execute the requirement rules, and (iv) report the results that were made available to the user. To demonstrate the feasibility and accuracy of the approach, we use a case study from the foodservice equipment industry using an existing object library of foodservice equipment created by a major French manufacturer. All four steps were successfully completed, and the results show savings of around 125 minutes per object between the automated approach and traditional manual methods of working.
