The recent emergence of Building Information Modelling (BIM) constitutes one of the most exciting developments in Built Environment Design, Management, Maintenance and Operations. These advances have offered project teams multi-sensory collaborative tools and opportunities for new communication structures. They have become powerful analysis and interdisciplinary decision-making tools, designed to represent and simulate existing or hypothetical buildings and settings. BIM has far reaching consequences on both building procurement and infrastructure. The modern construction industry and built environment disciplines have been transformed through the development of new and innovative BIM tools and techniques. These have fundamentally altered the manner in which construction teams operate, the processes through which designs are evolved, and the relationships between conceptual, detail, construction and life cycle stages. Building Information Modelling (BIM) in Design, Construction, and Operations is the first in a planned series of conferences dealing with design coordination, construction, maintenance, operation and decommissioning.
