The I=Information in BIM


The global Urbanisation

1 million people move to cities every day


By 2050 more than 75% of the population will
live in megacities and we need to build
3 Billion homes
The process is fragmented,
old fashioned with too many
stakeholders
40% of the solid waste and
CO2 emissions are caused
by the building industry
What can digital technology do?
3D, Thermal, FEM, Cost, Clash
detection, Production sequencing,
4D-5D-6D, Light, Shadow, Sun,
Energy, Waste, Function,
Construct-ability, CO2 energy
water foot prints, Production
costs
It allow us to know more
earlier in the process to
simulate, calculate and visualise
and try more variations
KNOWLEDGE
Know-how
Understanding
insight
intuition
contextualized information

INFORMATION
contextualized,
categorized,
calculated and
condensed data

DATA
Facts and gures
which relays to
something specic,
but which are not
organized in any way

Amount of properties and information in objects
But, it puts a massive burden
on the BIM users..

Where to find data, certified


information and secure the
knowledge?
Product knowledge exchange?
More information generates
knowledge and leads to better
decisions.
Solve the problem in the
BIM model and not on the
construction site.

We need change!

If we don't change?

We would need a 2nd planet
