|Adoption of building information modelling (BIM): an evaluation through a case study of a regional contractor
|Paine K,Marasini R
|The Building Information Modelling (BIM) has been adopted by construction companies in the UK owing to the stipulated potential benefits and a push for its widespread uses on a national level though the new Government Construction Strategy. Large companies in the UK and the BIM software industry have suggested that the benefits of the technology are higher than the associated costs. This paper investigates challenges and issues faced by a regional contractor specialising in building projects under most Forms of Contract, including Design and Build and Traditional Contracting. Through a case study of a regional contractor, the process of implementation using BIM framework such as BIM plan and strategies is evaluated. The challenges as well as considerations that need to be taken into account in order to achieve, if at all possible, integrated building information model through the integration of architectural, structural and MEP models are evaluated and discussed in the paper.
