BIM Authors Free Trial

This unit provides orientation in the essential grammar of Building Information Modelling (BIM), and the framework and processes of BIM-based design techniques. It aims to foster understanding of the integration and organisation of cross-disciplinary design content in BIM environments, covering core knowledge in project databases, family creation, object libraries, naming conventions, classification codes, shared parameters and export files. Students obtain grounding in the underpinning logic of authoring tools, developing skills driving current software such as Tekla, AutoCAD, Revit, Bentley and Integraph on multiple platforms to complete the design of a simple, small-scale building.

BIM Sustainability Online

 

Sustainable principles are no longer disputed knowledge for construction industry leaders and professionals; they are a core part of current building practice. This unit emphasises critical regard for the implementation of preferred or standard but also cutting edge sustainable strategies in specialised projects at a global level to develop research-based practice. Students obtain knowledge of BIM model’s database to inquire after material and quantity attributes and values for real­-time energy analyses and prototyping. Consolidating knowledge of site analysis and precedent studies, students apply understanding to drive iterative, exploratory and integrated processes throughout the project’s lifecycle.

Students are able to (1) apply technical and analytical skills to test a building for its thermal and passive solar performance; (2) manage and apply input and output data for energy and comfort optimization in order to refine design solutions; (3) identify tools for early design simulation of visual, acoustic, and thermal comfort; and (4) demonstrate theoretical knowledge underpinning sustainability principles and strategies.

BLDG5100 BIM Dimensions

This unit equips students with advanced understanding of the design potential in BIM environments, from conception to parametric programmability. It expands knowledge through digital speculation in 3D modelling tools relative to other BIM “dimensions”: schedule, cost, programming and sustainability. Particular emphasis is placed on how project database information is transformed along supply chain by the contributions of different roles operating in it, preparing students for engaging in a collaborative BIM environment.

BLDG5050 BIM Dynamo

This unit is to be taken by students who have substantial experience with BIM software and need a more advanced option unit to replace BLDG5000 BIM Authors. The software Dynamo provides BIM with a generative tool set using a visual scripting interface. Students develop skills in order to automate complex building components using various logic and mathematical methods. Dynamo extends building information modelling with the data and logic environment of a graphical algorithm editor.

BLDG5200 Digital Site

Taking a case study approach, this unit focuses on simulations of a project’s spatial requirements and construction sequence on site. It investigates tools for manipulating building components to account for the construction process given site limitations and opportunities and generating transparent data for various stakeholders in shared parameters to enhance management and expedite workflows. Students acquire knowledge of visualisation and verification techniques to support coordination of contractual relations and methods of converting data-based information to prepare BIM model information for facilities management.

BLDG5500 Network Teams

This unit provides an in-depth understanding of the major concepts, theories and practices of group dynamics and team processes for leaders and managers in team models integrated with BIM.

It emphasises ideas of leadership, collaboration and performance. Students apply knowledge of key skills managing team facilitation processes, examine processes that enhance team effectiveness and understand how to implement self-managed teams in BIM models.

BLDG5700 BIM Manager

The BIM environment is an advanced and integrated environment for the management of complex building projects with a sophisticated capacity to deliver outcomes for all stakeholders. The knowledge required to manage this complexity requires new skills within the context of different building typologies. This unit develops research skills to address novel challenges generated by building projects and deliver various complex data sets in a single federated model, namely, comprehensive BIM Briefs, BIM Execution Plans and BIM Sub Plan.

BLDG5800 Major Project

This unit facilitates independent study and research in a team environment to solve simulated complex construction problems through a real time design and construct scenario, culminating in an exhibition and presentation of BIM information.

Supervision will be centred around the team’s capacity to find and resolve complex problems and decisions using the tools developed through the Master’s program. There will be a strong emphasis on collaborative process and the effective communication of higher order thinking to facilitate judicious and ethical practice.
