Full-time PhD student with Dr Alan Hore, Dr Barry McAuley, Dr Ahmed Hassan and Prof. Roger West, basic at the Technology University of Dublin. This project will investigate the connection between governmental policy targets and the mechanisms to achieve them through BIM in Ireland to develop a framework in Ireland to support the delivery of these targets through the adoption of BIM and to support the deliveries of Irish BIM Policy.
What to expect during the event
Rapid technological advancements in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) sector have provided a significant opportunity for improving the industry's efficiency, performance and sustainability. Building information modelling (BIM) is an innovative approach to information management in construction. It provides a structured methodology to store and analyse building information with stakeholders. The successful adoption of BIM mandates the intervention and support of the public sector with developing standards, guidance, funding and procurement. The presentation aims to analyse national BIM policies in different degrees of force, compare the general impacts and, in the subsequent research, will set how these policies can support Irish Government policy objectives addressing current challenges and a formal implementation phase. This presentation will adopt a qualitative research approach with recently collected and analysed questionnaires with the Irish industry stakeholders' BIM expectations in the public sector.
