Programme Highlights

The importance of the "I", i.e. information, in BIM is widely recognized. Unfortunately, there are always confusions about the accuracy, credibility of the information as it can be either too general to represent or too detailed to handle. While some design team members may tend to provide less information including the useful cross-referencing information to avoid their commitment in accuracy and credibility, there are revolutionary changes in how information in BIM should be handled. The speaker's experience in BIM shows that the level of details of BIM should be in-line with the source of information. With various types of elements, there should be a different levels of accuracy which should be stored in BIM for user's reference. This could ease the worry about any deviation between the model and the reality.
