ADVANCING THE USE OF BIM THROUGH A GOVERNMENT FUNDED CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY COMPETENCY CENTRE IN IRELAND

Abstract: The main aim of this paper is to develop the early case for a new Competence Centre dedicated to industry led research in the Irish construction industry. It incorporates the results of a survey carried out by the Construction IT Aliance (CITA) and also identifies similiar centres carrying out industry led research around the world. Results from the survey show a clear support for the establishment of such a centre in Ireland and, in particular, a strong interest in Building Information Modelling (BIM) as a immediate priority research area. BIM is having a profound effect worldwide on the construction industry. The development and adoption of BIM technologies is in parallel with other major changes relating to project procurement approaches, such as Integrated Project Delivery (IPD), and the general sustainability agenda. Although slow to take off in Ireland to-date, BIM is becoming extremely relevant in other countries, with over 50% adoption in the United States and an average of 36% in Europe. The authors argue that a government funded Competence Centre will facilitate the Irish construction industry in re-establishing itself, domestically and internationally as a competitive entity.

BIM in Different Methods of Project Delivery

Abstract: This paper particularly addresses the topics of “legal and regulatory aspects of Building Information Modelling (BIM)” by reporting actual discussions in The Netherlands on the appropriateness of four project delivery methods to be applied for BIM based projects, i.e. traditional Design-Bid-Build, Dutch Building Team, Design-and-Build, and Integrated Project Delivery (IPD). BIM has become very important in a complex project that requires multidisciplinary collaboration. However, in many projects, BIM is still viewed as an ICT tool only, and hitherto BIM is to be decided when the project reaches an operational level. Such a viewpoint can undermine the effectiveness of BIM to support an effective collaboration. Therefore, considering the most appropriate project delivery method to assure an open and integrated collaboration is crucial since the project initiation stage.The main part of this paper covers a desk research to review several project delivery methods. The analysis focuses on how the use of BIM in a project affects the division of tasks and the formal agreements on the roles and working processes between the parties involved. Following the theoretical analysis, this paper makes a reflection on the recent BIM based projects in The Netherlands refer to the best practices presented during the national BIM competition in 2010. Recommendations are then given to improve the existing practice, among which the standardisation of general contract conditions for a BIM based project is strongly advised to avoid ‘reinventing the wheel’ in each new project.

Keywords: BIM, project delivery method, collaboration, best practice, The Netherlands.
