Centre for BIM Research (CBR)
Digital transformation has been taking place for many years since the use of CAD technologies. Nevertheless, it has been accelerated in the last two decades when the Building Information Modelling (BIM) technologies have been introduced and implemented in all aspects of a construction project from design, construction, operation, maintenance and end of life of a built asset. It brings a new dimension to the construction professionals, manufacturers and suppliers in the built environment; both in the workflow and creates a new collaborative working environment. BIM can provide solutions more than the CAD technologies in various ways for the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industries. This has an impact on the demand for research in BIM and digital skill sets among the construction professionals, which had gained significant momentum in recent years.
The proposed BIM Research Centre is to explore the opportunities in conducting BIM research, consultancy, and to assist and support the practitioners, entrepreneurs, and supply chains in BIM implementation and adoption within the built environment as well as a knowledge hub for the research in BIM education, training, and implementation.
A centre for BIM research for the built environment practitioners and academics and an impartial industry-focussed BIM Centre for research, consultancy, and training in the region and nationwide.
Our Focus & Activities
The focus of this Centre is to produce high quality impartial industry-focussed BIM research, training and consultancy for the built environment practitioners and academics. Where necessary, the scope and deliveries will be focused on the Architecture, Engineering and Construction, suppliers and international research collaboration in BIM technologies, implementation and teaching and learning as the Centre’s main activities.
