"The BIM Handbook is an extensively researched andmeticulously written book, showing evidence of years of work ratherthan something that has been quickly put together in the course ofa few months. It brings together most of the current informationabout BIM, its history, as well as its potential future in oneconvenient place, and can serve as a handy reference book on BIMfor anyone who is involved in the design, construction, andoperation of buildings and needs to know about the technologiesthat support it. The need for such a book is indisputable, and itis terrific that Chuck Eastman and his team were able to step up tothe plate and make it happen. Thanks to their efforts, anyone inthe AEC industry looking for a deeper understanding of BIM nowknows exactly where to look for it."

Discover BIM: A better way to build better buildings

Building Information Modeling (BIM) offers a novelapproach to design, construction, and facility management in whicha digital representation of the building process is used tofacilitate the exchange and interoperability of information indigital format. BIM is beginning to change the way buildings look,the way they function, and the ways in which they are designed andbuilt.

The BIM Handbook, Second Edition provides an in-depthunderstanding of BIM technologies, the business and organizationalissues associated with its implementation, and the profoundadvantages that effective use of BIM can provide to all members ofa project team. Updates to this edition include:

Completely updated material covering the current practice andtechnology in this fast-moving field

Expanded coverage of lean construction and its use of BIM, withspecial focus on Integrated Project Delivery throughout thebook

New insight on the ways BIM facilitates sustainable building

New information on interoperability schemas and collaborationtools

Six new case studies

Painting a colorful and thorough picture of the state of the artin building information modeling, the BIM Handbook, SecondEdition guides readers to successful implementations, helpingthem to avoid needless frustration and costs and take fulladvantage of this paradigm-shifting approach to construct betterbuildings that consume fewer materials and require less time,labor, and capital resources.
