The BIM Manager's Handbook: Guidance for Professionals in Architecture, Engineering, and Construction


Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a design and construction software that manages not just graphics, but also information information that enables the automatic generation of drawings and reports, design analysis, schedule simulation, facilities management, and cost analysis ultimately enabling any building team to make better-informed decisions. This allows a range of professionals architects, engineers, construction managers, surveyors, cost estimators, project managers, and facility managers to share this information throughout a building's lifecycle. BIM is now recognized worldwide for the efficiencies it delivers in terms of working collaboratively, communication, processes, cost savings, and a property's lifecycle management.


With the widespread adoption of BIM, BIM Managers have become a much-needed new breed of professionals in architectural, engineering, and construction practice. Their role is often misunderstood and ill-defined, and such are the day-to-day deliverables that they are likely to face. The BIM Manager's Handbook provides an in-depth account of the breadth of activities that any BIM Manager or staff member, who is actively engaged in the delivery of project, is required to undertake.


Providing prereleases of the final work, The BIM Manager's Handbook ePart series isolates significant topics around BIM management. In the sixth and final ePart, BIM is taken to the next level by outlining what is required to truly excel as a BIM Manager. It highlights how BIM Managers acquire the necessary communication skills to maximize an efficient information flow between the BIM Manager and others. It illustrates how BIM Managers tie their activities to cutting-edge BIM research and development globally. Lastly, this ePart lays out how to promote BIM excellence both within an organization and beyond.
