BIM Implementations in Construction

Low efficiency levels and lack of integration of processes and project participants has long been a significant problem in construction. 

Building Information Modeling (BIM) can be a solution to this problem.

BIM represents the physical and functional characteristics of a facility in a digital format and it goes beyond just being a technology by facilitating integration along the supply chain. BIM could be used for many purposes within construction projects including design, modeling, clash detection, cost estimation, scheduling, prefabrication, energy analysis, and facility management.  Dr. Beliz Ozorhon works on different aspects of BIM and related concepts such as lean, ERP, sustainability, etc. She investigates the use of BIM throughout the project life cycle focusing mainly on building and infrastructure projects. She collaborates with both public and private sector to better understand the underlying reasons of success and failure in the implementation process.
