Building information modeling (BIM) has become a significant area of endeavor in the architecture, engineering, construction, and operations (AECO) industry. The models generated from BIM are being used for analysis and design of buildings and other infrastructure. The ability to integrate schedule and cost data with the analysis and design process makes BIM a very useful tool.

Building Information Modeling contains 13 chapters, contributed by international researchers and practitioners, that present a comprehensive overview of the recent advances in the application of BIM across the AECO industry. The use of BIM is examined as a framework for structural design; in cost estimation; in adaptive cyber-physical systems; in construction progress monitoring and project management; in green building project delivery; in commissioning and facilities management; in military construction; in model assessment; and in integration with augmented reality.

Engineers, architects, contractors, building owners, facility managers, as well as researchers, will find this publication a valuable resource.
