BIM is a technology that has gained momentum in the construction industry. It allows buildings to be virtually created and information about the building to be stored in a central coordinated model. It is also believed that BIM is widely accepted as a leading –edge software in building design and to some extent it is accepted as a process view which focusing on the information over the full lifecycle of a building (Watson, 2010). In the 2nd edition BIM handbook by (Eastman, Teicholz, Sacks, & Liston, 2011)also explained that BIM is a database of information that tracks its manufacture, cost, delivery, installation methods, labour cost and even the maintenance schedule all the way to its replacement value. At this moment, construction industry in Malaysia is facing huge challenges from the communities to increase their productivity, quality and value due to problems such as cost overrun, delay, the production of low quality product and still using old technology (Zahrizan, Ali, Haron, Marshall-Pointing, & Hamid, 2013). The steps and efforts taken to implement BIM in Malaysia is an approach to countereact and solve these key challenges in Malaysian construction industry (Azhar, Khalfan, & Maqsood, 2012).
This 2-day course is aimed to expose the participants on the brief concept of Building Information Modelling (BIM) as the new philosophy, methodology and tools in construction project management practices.
