Preface to BIM and Big Data for Construction Cost
About ten years in the past, the perform of ‘automated amount surveying’, along with ‘conflict detection’, has already been positioned on the crux of the trouble to mainstream BIM within the world development trade.
Quite a few research have been performed to research the technical options of making use of BIM for value administration (e.g., BIM-enabled amount take-off, automated era of invoice of portions, and 5D BIM-enabled value management).
On this textual content, the phrases ‘amount surveying (QS)’ and ‘development value administration’ are used interchangeably to accommodate the broader readership from each UK and non-UK methods, albeit generally there are nuanced variations between the 2 phrases.
Skilled our bodies such because the RICS or the HKIS have sponsored analysis tasks to look at whether or not BIM is an ally or an adversary for the QS career.
These research decided that BIM principally advantages QS, however this long-standing career ought to reinvent its core competencies.
The entire trade appears a lot relieved. But, regardless of BIM’s decade-long maturity, the worldwide development trade’s acceptance and utility of BIM in value administration has been sluggish, or at greatest, not as easy because it has been anticipated.
It’s in opposition to this backdrop that we three determined to jot down this e-book, which goals to confront the difficulties of making use of BIM for QS, be they technological, attitudinal, cultural, or organizational. Dr. Lu is an Affiliate Professor on the College of Hong Kong (HKU) and has been concerned in BIM analysis for greater than ten years.
Mr. Lai is working one of many largest QS companies in Hong Kong and Mainland China. A fervent member of the BIM neighborhood, he’s eager to implement BIM in his agency’s day by day operations to boost productiveness, make QS works much less tedious, and enhance the picture of the career.
Contemporary and filled with curiosity, Mr. Tse is a graduate of HKU and a colleague of Mr. Lai. He leads the agency’s strategic BIM improvement, along with his work conducting typical surveyor duties. The workforce thus has a novel mix of taste by accessing each tutorial and sensible ideas.
This e-book is the results of shut interactions between us, the writer workforce, and with the trade, authorities departments, and skilled our bodies.
This e-book has ten chapters divided into three components. Half I consists of three prefatory chapters, which introduce the overall background of development value administration, BIM theories, and exhausting technological elements, and BIM implementation methods and different gentle elements.
Half II, additionally three chapters, gives in-depth analyses of how BIM can greatest be carried out in development value administration.
Chapter 4 discusses BIM-enabled processes, culminating in a QS-BIM execution plan and its a number of crucial success elements. Chapter 5 gives a number of real-life circumstances to additional assist readers deepen their understanding of BIM for value administration, not all of that are exemplary circumstances, however their faults, if any, nonetheless inform the reader.
Chapter 6 examines huge knowledge and the way it pertains to development value administration. Placing apart the hype issue of this buzz phrase, in actuality, surveying firms typically accumulate glorious huge knowledge.
This ‘buried asset’ might be harnessed to higher facilitate their QS enterprise. Half III consists of 4 chapters, which primarily elaborate on the challenges and prospects of BIM and huge knowledge for QS.
Some good practices are beneficial, the way forward for this area is mentioned, and conclusions are drawn.
Though the e-book is about BIM, huge knowledge, and QS, its readership shouldn’t be confined to QS-related professionals solely. Reasonably, we encourage all development stakeholders to take part within the BIM revolution by realizing the worth of this rising know-how and making use of it to boost our constructed atmosphere.
On this sense, the e-book just isn’t a conclusion of the previous, not the start of a brand new future, however hopefully, a small stepping stone resulting in extra ardent participation from all of the stakeholders.
