About this Unit
This unit offers knowledge and skills essential for a successful application of Building Information Modelling (BIM) in the context of built environment. Building Information Modelling (BIM) has the potential to improve integration between design and construction processes, reduce design discrepancies and rework, optimise project time and cost performance, and manage risks. Students will develop an understanding of the generation, reviewing and application of 3D, 4D and 5D BIM models in building projects. Virtual and augmented reality, spatial information capture and performance management systems will also be introduced. This unit will be taught through intensive practice-based workshops and computing labs, enabling students to build skills in virtual design and construction processes.
