Digital methods for modelling, designing, simulating and visualising buildings. Application of digital methods for developing integrated solutions to complex building design and construction challenges.
This course applies advanced knowledge of building systems and building information modelling (BIM) to the professional practice of integrated building design. The course covers strategies and processes for creating, managing, and applying building information models at different stages of the building’s lifecycle and how information is communicated using visualisation and other digital methods. The use of BIM as a building design tool to analyse construction costs, construction time and the performance of proposed building systems is examined.
A student who successfully completes this course should be able to apply advanced knowledge of building systems and building information modelling to the professional practice of: Developing BIM strategies and communicating the value of BIM in building design and construction projects. Implementing BIM modelling, design and visualisation applications for integrated design. Managing data sharing, information exchange and digital collaboration in building design and construction projects.
