Integration of Virtual Prototyping and Building Information Modeling to Optimize the Construction Site Planning and Management


Objectives: To study the possibility of using Building Information Modeling (BIM) to improve the efficiency of site planning and management spaces within the buildings. Method: In order to achieve this study, the literature and previous research in the field has been consulted, as well as the collection of data by interviewing a group of engineers through collection of documents and maps of the project and taking realistic picture of the buildings. Findings: By analyzing case study and finding real area data by using BIM technology and comparing it with the international standards for space management on campus, there was a significant difference. And it was found that there is no international standard used in the design of these spaces and it is not suitable for student and staff and teaching staff. The researcher recommends the use of BIM technology in the early stage of the project to reduce the design error in space management and the efficiency of this technology and it’s easy to obtaining information and data. Although there are obstacles to the use of BIM practices due to the reasons for the scarcity of qualified personal in this field, in the near future there will be the usage of large scale BIM system in the construction industry. Applications: BIM technology is one of the most important technologies in the construction industry and it increases the performance during project life cycle. As a result of the development of the construction industry, such technology has to be used, increasing design efficiency and improving construction work while providing more time and cost
