  • A benefits realization management Building Information Modeling framework for asset owners
    Automation in Construction, 2014
    Co-Authors: Peter E D Love, Jane Matthews, Ian Simpson, Andrew Hill, Oluwole A. Olatunji

    Abstract:

    An asset owner’s decision to implement Building Information Modeling (BIM) can enable strategic business outcomes. For an asset owner the implementation of BIM should not be seen as a discrete Information technology project, but a business change program that can potentially impact their ‘value proposition’. Benefits realization recognizes that technology alone cannot deliver business outcomes and that the process of its implementation is proactively managed to ensure that the organization obtains the results it expects. This paper presents a novel framework that asset owners can use to ensure that they can obtain ‘value’ from investing in BIM. It is proffered that the benefits realization process should be viewed as a learning process that enables the asset owner to constantly question and measure the benefits of BIM. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.

  • from justification to evaluation Building Information Modeling for asset owners
    Automation in Construction, 2013
    Co-Authors: Peter E D Love, Ian Simpson, Andrew Hill, Craig Standing

    Abstract:

    Abstract Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an emerging technology focused methodology that can be used to improve the performance and productivity of an asset’s design, construction, operation and maintenance process. Typically the investment justification process for BIM has been based upon the utilization of the return on investment (ROI). This measure does not accurately reflect the ‘real’ costs and benefits that are associated with implementing BIM by an asset owner. With this in mind, a benefits evaluation framework that looks beyond ROI and takes into account the evolving nature of BIM by incorporating intangible benefits and indirect costs is presented and discussed. To acquire the wide range of benefits that BIM can offer asset owners, it is proffered that they should shift their mindsets away from justification using ROI to a process of evaluation that encompasses the appraisal of value and benefits’ realization.

  • The outlook of Building Information Modeling for sustainable development
    Clean Technologies and Environmental Policy, 2016
    Co-Authors: Heap Yih Chong, Xiangyu Wang

    Abstract:

    As human needs evolve, Information technologies and natural environments require a wider perspective of sustainable development, especially when examining the built environment that impacts the central of social-ecological systems. The objectives of the paper are (a) to review the status and development of Building Information Modeling (BIM) in regards to the sustainable development in the built environment, and (b) to develop a future outlook framework that promotes BIM in sustainable development. Seven areas of sustainability were classified to analyze forty-four BIM guidelines and standards. This review examines the use of BIM in sustainable development, focusing primarily on certain areas of sustainability, such as project development, design, and construction. The developed framework describes the need for collaboration with the multiple disciplines for the future adoption and use of BIM for the sustainable development. It also considers the integration between “BIM and green assessment criteria”; and “BIM and renewable energy” to address the shortcomings of the standards and guidelines.

  • a conceptual framework for integrating Building Information Modeling with augmented reality
    Automation in Construction, 2013
    Co-Authors: Peter E D Love, Xiangyu Wang, Chan-sik Park, Chun Pong Sing

    Abstract:

    During the last two decades, designers have been embracing Building Information Modeling (BIM) to improve the quality of the documentation that is produced as well as constructability. While BIM has become an innate feature of the design process within the construction industry, there have been limited investigations that have examined how it can be integrated into real-time communication on-site. In addressing this gap, this paper proposes a conceptual framework that integrates BIM with augmented reality (AR) so as to enable the physical context of each construction activity or task to be visualized in real-time. To be effective, it is suggested that AR should be ubiquitous (including context awareness) and thus operate in conjunction with tracking and sensing technologies such as radio frequency identification (RFID), laser pointing, sensors and motion tracking.

  • Building Information Modeling bim partnering framework for public construction projects
    Automation in Construction, 2013
    Co-Authors: Atul Porwal, Kasun N. Hewage

    Abstract:

    Abstract Organizational and people centered issues pose the greatest challenge for Building Information Modeling (BIM) implementation. Studies showed that BIM implementation is still a challenge for the North American construction industry. The Canadian construction industry, in contrast, is well behind that of the U.S. in its BIM adoption rate. Maturity and adoption of BIM depends mainly on the client or the owner in construction projects. Public sector clients often think that the market is not ready for BIM and are afraid to increase project costs by limiting competition. Moreover, if the contractor is not integrated in the project in the design phase, BIM has limited power. This paper proposes a ‘BIM partnering’ based public procurement framework to ensure ‘best value’ in construction projects. The case study presented in the paper proved the feasibility of proposed BIM based procurement in publicly-funded construction projects. The suggested contractual arrangement for the project resulted in improved productivity, better coordination, and reduced error, and rework.
