GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF THE COURSE
The course is a follow-up to the BIM course and is project-based oriented. In the course students are
introduced to real-life AECO project (Architecture, Engneering, Construction, Operation) contributed
by design, consultant and/or construction contractor companies. Depending on the nature of the
availbale projects (building, infrastructure, as-designed, as-built), the project documentation is first
analysed and proper BIM approach is defined. In the next phase the BIM approach is applied either to
new or existing BIM models (from previous courses). The work always considers a federated BIM
approach with use of a BIM server. Students work in groups to focus on specific sub-models that at
the end integrate to a complete BIM model.
- Digital data for building and infrastructure object projects (digital terrain model, ortho-photos,
digital model of the city, clouds of 3D points).
- Technical specifications and BIM standards for infrastructure objects (LandXML, OpenINFRA, IFC
- BIM software for infrastructure objects (BIM tools for parametric modeling infrastructure:
Autodesk Infraworks, Civil 3D, Navisworks, Subassembly Composer, programming (if
- BIM software for building objects (BIM tools for parametric modeling of buildings: Autodesk
Revit, ArhiCAD, Ecotec, Infraworks, MS Project, Navisworks, Rhino / Grasshoper).
- BIM Project: design and
implementation of BIM model for
buildings and/or civil engineering
(infrastructure) objects. Projects
