This study aims to discuss the articles which are only available in electronic academic databases and only written in English in the subject of BIM and ACCC. Statistical results about the articles are obtained by the meta-analysis. In this study, meta-analysis method was selected as the method, and the general situation of the articles is presented based on statistical analysis data in the AEC industry. For meta-analysis, adapting from previous studies, a meta-analysis template consisting of four main categories is created and each category is subdivided into sub-categories. As a result of the study conducted in the electronic academic databases of the ITU (Istanbul Technical University) library website, there are 168 studies, including 131 articles and 37 proceedings until 31.12.2020. Only articles are analyzed in this study, and proceedings are not included. A literature review is carried out in the publications on the subject of ACCC through BIM by the ITU library website’s academic databases to determine in which research trend is, in which areas are concentrated, and which areas are available. The study gives detailed information about the articles on ACCC subject area in the AEC industry in sub-categories when making general evaluation in categories.
Part of the book: Automation and Control
Building regulations in the construction industry are legal documents written in human language. These are interpreted and implemented by people and generally controlled by local governments. Traditional building regulation control and supervision methods emerge as a time-consuming and error-prone process for architects, engineers, and public authorities. Therefore, BIM\'s effective building regulation control is considered a promising field of study in the construction industry. Automated Code Compliance Checking (ACCC) method is a rule-based method that provides simultaneous control of the computer’s building regulations. ACCC takes into account the characteristics of the building elements and related building regulations. BIM is recognized as the most effective platform for information exchange of building projects in the construction industry. It supports the development of various software. It facilitates automated or semi-automated ACCC of the building projects for compliance with building regulations and standards for the participants involved in the building production process. The data of the building project are represented in two ways in the ACCC. These are BIM Model, and IFC or IFCXML Data Standard. In this study, the BIM, IFC, and IFCXML representations of the building project data were explained over the sample housing project in the ACCC process.
