BIM Repository Workshop
The evolutionary change within the construction industry “from managing files to the managing of information objects has only begun to take place” (Eastman 2012). When object level information management is required, there will be a need for support by a building model repository, also known as e.g. BIM repository. Owen (2012) lists integrated planning, integrated design with multiple alternatives and functional, spatial interfaces, and integrated supply chains with system performance requirements and specifications as important functionalities of IDDS (Integrated design and delivery support).
This is a short background to organizing a two day workshop June 28-29, to discuss and formulate issues and directions in the domain of “Collaboration Hubs”. Väino Tarandi, Professor in IT in Construction, would like to develop this domain and see this workshop as a good way for doing that. 12 leading international researchers have confirmed to participate and the result will be a white paper.
If you are interested in participating in the first part of the workshop, contact Väino Tarandi.
