Offering critical insights to the state-of-the-art in Building Information Modeling (BIM) research and development, this book outlines the prospects and challenges for the field in this era of digital revolution. Analysing the contributions of BIM across the construction industry, it provides a comprehensive survey of global BIM practices.

Accessible and thorough, the chapters explore the theory behind and facilitators of BIM, covering knowledge management around BIM, the development of ontologies and language in the area, holistic implementations, and BIM ecosystems. The book further discusses the technological developments of BIM, including scan-to-BIM, 3D digital reconstruction and AI and robotics techniques. Critical analysis of BIM-enabled construction and engineering management innovations are also examined, highlighting prospects and challenges in the area.

This will be a critical read for engineering, construction management and architecture students looking for a comprehensive study of BIM. It will also be beneficial to practitioners working in the Architecture, Engineering, Construction, Owner & Operation (AECOO) industry wanting a better understanding of the benefits and future developments of BIM.
Critical Acclaim
‘The ongoing development and adoption of Building Information Modelling has led to many valuable innovative practices in the construction industry. This exciting compilation of leading research on BIM by experts from around the world is essential reading for all those seeking to transform the construction industry.’
– Keith Hampson, President, International Council for Research and Innovation in Building and Construction (CIB)

‘This book is a timely collection covering the current state-of-the-art research and emerging trends in Building Information Modeling (BIM). The roles of BIM for a broad range of important applications, from robotics, safety management, energy and waste management, block chain to digital twins, are covered. With contributions by eminent researchers across the globe, the collection highlights the prospects of digital technology for the building industry of tomorrow. The Research Companion to Building Information Modeling is a definitive reference for researchers and practitioners in building and construction engineering.’
– Kincho H. Law, Stanford University, US

‘This book integrates the wisdom of many experts and scholars, combines theory with practice, shows the cutting-edge achievements in the field of Building Information Modeling (BIM), and allows us to see the latest progress in theoretical research, technological development, and project application of BIM. The book includes the integrated application of BIM and emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and robotics, as well as the innovations of BIM in industrialized buildings, prefabricated design, and safety management. Meanwhile, it also foresees the future of integrating BIM with blockchain, CIM, and other technologies. I believe that the book will definitely have a positive impact on the industry–academic exchanges of BIM and the practical application of construction projects.’
– Diao Zhizhong, Chairman, Glodon Company Ltd., China

‘Having worked with serial builders for over 25 years I have witnessed how Building Information Modeling has helped deliver significantly better project outcomes. With such a wide range of perspectives regarding this technology, the Research Companion to Building Information Modeling is a must read for anyone who plays a role in the design and construction process.’
– Jon Antevy, Founder of e-Builder
