Discover BIM: A better way to build better buildings.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a new approach to design, construction, and facility management in which a digital representation of the building process is used to facilitate the exchange and interoperability of information in digital format. BIM is beginning to change the way buildings look, the way they function, and the ways in which they are designed and built.
BIM Handbook: A Guide to Building Information Modeling for Owners,Managers, Designers, Engineers, and Contractors provides an in-depth understanding of BIM technologies, the business and organizational issues associated with its implementation, and the profound advantages that effective use of BIM can provide to all members of a project team. The Handbook:
Introduces Building Information Modeling and the technologies that support it
Reviews BIM and its related technologies, in particular parametric and object-oriented modeling, its potential benefits, its costs, and needed infrastructure
Explains how designing, constructing, and operating buildings with BIM differs from pursuing the same activities in the traditional way using drawings, whether paper or electronic
Discusses the present and future influences of BIM on regulatory agencies; legal practice associated with the building industry; and manufacturers of building products
Presents a rich set of BIM case studies and describes various BIM tools and technologies
Shows how specific disciplines?owners, designers, contractors, and fabricators?can adopt and implement BIM in their companies
Explores BIM's current and future impact on industry and society
Painting a colorful and thorough picture of the state of the art in Building Information Modeling, the BIM Handbook guides readers to successful implementations, helping them to avoid needless frustration and costs and take full advantage of this paradigm-shifting approach to build better buildings, that consume fewer materials, and require less time, labor, and capital resources.

Paul Teicholz, Professor Emeritus at Stanford University, founded the Center for Integrated Facility Engineering (CIFE) at Stanford University in 1988 and directed that program for 10 years. He was named the Construction Management "Man of the Year" by the American Society of Civil Engineers in 1985 and awarded the Henry C. Turner Prize for Innovation in Construction Technology by the National Building Museum in 2006.
Rafael Sacks, an Associate Professor in Structural Engineering and Construction Management at Technion–Israel Institute of Technology, founded and leads the BIM Laboratory at the Israel National Building Research Institute. He has conducted primary and applied BIM research for industry, government, and public organizations in North America, Europe, and Israel.
Kathleen Liston, a technology con-sultant and PhD candidate at Stanford University, co-founded Common Point technologies, a construction simulation software company. She has held positions at Autodesk, and worked on projects dev-eloping technologies and processes to implement 3D/4D/BIM with a variety of organizations including Walt Disney, Mort-enson, URS, and Parsons-Brinckerhoff.Review:
"The BIM Handbook bills itself as a "guide", but it is also a history−a compendium of case studies, a detailed look at the underlying software and other technology, and a forward−looking analysis of how BIM will exert increasing influence on the way buildings are designed, constructed, and operated." (Civil Engineering, July 2008)
