A must-have reference to create content-rich BIM objects andmodels

A cutting-edge technology, Building Information Modeling (BIM)software allows AEC professionals to produce data-intensive 3Dbuilding models that far exceed those rendered with the 2Dlimitations of CAD, today's industry standard. Unlike CAD, however,no consensus has been reached among AEC industries for agreed uponguidelines directing BIM models. To fill this void, this bookexplores the different approaches used in designing a BIM model andincorporates them into one cohesive strategy that serves as adigital road map going forward.

BIM Content Development:

  • Details the various types of information (graphic and data) thatBuilding Information Modeling (BIM) can gather about a building,such as its dimensions and material, its performance, itsfunctionality, its interaction with other structures, and how oftenit must be maintained

  • Presents a vendor-neutral approach to thinking about,organizing, and managing data used to create a 3D buildingmodel

  • Covers the different methods for organizing content, such asCSI's MasterFormat®, Uniformat, OmniClass, and IndustryFoundation Classes (IFC)

Providing the means and methods for effective content creation,BIM Content Development offers sound guidance for graphicstandards and data management solutions to maximize the ability ofprofessionals to operate on any BIM software platform—andshows how to strengthen the decision-making process to unleashpowerful tools for modeling a building's informational profile.
