||Information-based representation paradigm
||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 inthe procurement process, including the design brief (program). Manyearly decisions and design intentions must be captured and madeknown to the future managers of the facility;It is imperative that we addresses the issues of buildability andbuilding quality (performance and its measurement);A building is considered as an organic growth process: informationthus grows as the product develops from its embryonic stages, to fullgrowth, to adaptive re-use, and to decay; andInformation modelling is 'continuous' over the building life cycle: notpiece-meal to address the various disparate requirements.
