On the use of Building Information Modeling in Infrastructure Bridges

Abstract: This paper describes the requirements for applying Integrated Design and Delivery Solutions (IDDS) in bridges’ projects in EGYPT to overcome the problems arising from applying the traditional engineering and delivery methods and processes. These requirements are: forming a new delivery model; building an integrated team; changes in contracts and roles of project parties; implementation of new technologies as Building Information Modeling (BIM) and; changes and requirements for people, organizations, and educational resources. The paper then describes how to successfully implement Building Information Modeling on bridges’ projects by forming Building Information Modeling execution plan which requires four steps which are: identifying high value BIM uses during project planning, design, construction and operational phases; designing the BIM execution process by creating process maps; defining the BIM deliverables in a form of information exchanges and; developing the infrastructure needed to support the implementation.

Information Visualisation for the Architectural Practice

Abstract: Information is a critical element for architects to accomplish their tasks. The overwhelming increase and complexity of digital information has revealed problems concerning information acquisition. New techniques of handling information are needed to improve the transformation of data into information, and then into knowledge. Applying information visualisation (IV) techniques is seen as one of these techniques. This paper discusses the importance of information in architectural practice and the potentials of utilizing IV techniques to improve the information acquisition process. The paper attempts to draw an application model for developing IV tools. It explores in detail four main factors that influence their successful application, which are: (1) underlying data structure, (2) information seeking strategies, (3) identification of IV techniques, and (4) analysing the user profile. Based on these factors, the paper critically examines different possible IV development approaches for the architectural practice, these include: technology push, data structure based, and task driven approaches
