About the book

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is known as a useful concept in the construction literature and all the associated sectors. BIM adoption and implementation have been discussed within academia and practitioners over years. The advancement of various other emerging and digital technologies enhanced the capability and advantages of BIM. BIM has been used along with various tools and techniques for numerous applications. A wide range of tools and technologies are utilized by practitioners which can enhance the capability or functionality of BIM. These technologies are Interment of Things, Digital Twin, GIS, Mixed Reality, and Artificial Intelligence. This book aims to present the outcome of recent investigations relevant to BIM and discuss all possible integration of BIM with other advanced digital technologies. The scope of the book is to cover the current challenges and applications of the entire building life cycle such as design, architecture, construction, maintenance, and demolition.

This book intends to present case studies or practices which may be considered as solutions to energy minimization, productivity enhancement, quality improvements, risk management and contribute to the sustainable development goals (SDGs).
