Information-based representation paradigm

Abstract: This paper presents an "information-based representation paradigm". The objectives of this modelling paradigm are based on the premise that: Process is inseparable from the product; Information is collected and captured from the very early stages in the procurement process, including the design brief (program). Many early decisions and design intentions must be captured and made known to the future managers of the facility; It is imperative that we addresses the issues of buildability and building quality (performance and its measurement); A building is considered as an organic growth process: information thus grows as the product develops from its embryonic stages, to full growth, to adaptive re-use, and to decay; and Information modelling is 'continuous' over the building life cycle: not piece-meal to address the various disparate requirements.
