BIM Handbook A Guide to Building Information Modeling
Discover BIM: A better way to build better buildings
Building Information Modeling (BIM) offers a novel approach to design, construction, and facility management in which a digital representation of the building product and process is used to facilitate the exchange and interoperability of information in digital format. BIM is beginning to change the way buildings look, the way they function, and the ways in which they are designed and built.
The BIM Handbook, Third Edition provides an in-depth understanding of BIM technologies, the business and organizational issues associated with its implementation, and the profound advantages that effective use of BIM can provide to all members of a project team. Updates to this edition include:
• Information on the ways in which professionals should use BIM to gain maximum value
• New topics such as collaborative working, national and major construction clients, BIM standards and guides
• A discussion on how various professional roles have expanded through the widespread use and the new avenues of BIM practices and services
• A wealth of new case studies that clearly illustrate exactly how BIM is applied in a wide variety of conditions
Painting a colorful and thorough picture of the state of the art in building information modeling, the BIM Handbook, Third Edition guides readers to successful implementations, helping them to avoid needless frustration and costs and take full advantage of this paradigm-shifting approach to construct better buildings that consume fewer materials and require less time, labor, and capital resources.
BIM Handbook A Guide to Building Information Modeling Book By Chuck Eastman
The BIM Handbook is addressed to building developers, owners, managers,
and inspectors; to architects, engineers of all disciplines, construction contrac-
tors, and fabricators; and to students of architecture, civil engineering, and
building construction. It reviews Building Information Modeling and its related
technologies, its potential benefi ts, its costs and needed infrastructure. It also
discusses the present and future infl uences of BIM on regulatory agencies; legal
practice associated with the building industry; and manufacturers of building
products—it is directed at readers in these areas. A rich set of BIM case studies
are presented and various BIM tools and technologies are described. Current
and future industry and societal impacts are also explored.
