Preface

Building Information Modelling (BIM) has been effectively adopted and benefited in numerous projects across the globe, particularly in developed countries. This book aims to address the philosophies, applications and trends of BIM for its better adoption in developing countries. Two case studies were selected in Malaysia and Sri Lanka. The flow of the book begins with the introduction and background of the Malaysian and Sri Lankan construction industry and follows by the critical review of BIM’s philosophies, development and applications in different stages of the project as well as some discussions on certain BIM software. Subsequently, the way forward of BIM was articulated from the two perspectives, namely, academia and industry/BIM practitioner. The perspectives reveal that a different management and availability of library data are imperative for effective adoption of BIM, and integrations with other technologies are required for BIM in the near future, such as cloud computing, mobile devices, etc. The case studies highlight that the proper guidance of BIM software/technicality and adequacy of governmental supports were the main challenges at the moment. The book provides useful insight on BIM evolution and usage in Malaysia and Sri Lanka. It can also serves as a practical reference for related studies and practice in developing countries. In conclusion, readers will appreciate the fundamental approach of the discussion on the growing BIM body of knowledge, philosophies and trends.
