Abstract

As BIM adoption increases the challenge of transitioning to a three-dimensional workflow is faced by a growing number of designers. Such a transition requires a fundamental transformation in how designers think due to the fact that, “with BIM, buildings are modeled rather than drawn” (Levy, 2012). This way of working requires an open and coordinated approach to design and construction, and it is important that those new to the process understand what to expect and appreciate the challenges that may be encountered. As such, this paper will provide an overview of some of the important issues to be considered by those implementing BIM in practice, with a particular focus on the design stage. This will be done via a review of literature and qualitative analysis of a project case study, offering observations from a real project.
