I am currently writing an IFC reader application for Windows. Would anyone be interested in trying it and giving me some feedback? Maybe driving the application direction?

Many thanks

Hello,

I am currently working on my final year dissertation as part of my Construction Project Management program at the University of Manchester.

My dissertation is on the impact of BIM on the supply chain in the construction industry in the UK.

I am looking for members of the construction supply chain who have worked in the UK to fill in a questionnaire that takes 10 mins to complete. However, in order to comply with the university's regulations on information handling and privacy and in accordance with the GDPR, I will have to personally send the potential participants a Participant Information Sheet as well as a Consent Form. I will then send a link for my survey as well.

If you wish to participate, please send me an email stating so before I send you the documents. My email is: halim.saade@postgrad.manchester.ac.uk.

Thank you in advance!

Hi everyone. Sorry to bother you all but I would greatly appreciate if you could find 5 minutes of your time to fill in the following questionnaire. I am currently doing my RIBA Part 3 and have an essay to write on BIM and it’s potential implementation into building procurement methods. It would be incredibly useful to have your diverse and experienced views on the subjects. Thanks in advance!

Hello! I am an MSc student in Quantity Surveying and Commercial Management at Oxford Brookes University. Are you a construction professional concerned about the important progress of sustainability in the built environment?

If you have awareness or experience in BIM (Building Information Modelling) and/or BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) would you please fill out my questionnaire as part of my dissertation?

It will be for academic purposes only and take about 5 minutes. Your input would be of immense help and the results may also be of interest to you and your company. Thank you.

Hi all,

I'm currently studying an MSc at Salford University, and for my final piece i have tasked myself with exploring “BIM Implmenetation in small-medium enterprises for civil/structural engineers in the UK”.

I would be very grateful if i could improve the number of research respondents for answering my short open-ended research questionnaire. Better yet would be a short, recorded interview; however the questionnaire would be more than satisfactory. Please if you're willing to spare 10-15 minutes time, and you have experience with BIM and civil/structural engineering, then contact me on T.White2@edu.salford.ac.uk and i will send over the questionnaire.

Many thanks in advance,

Tom

Hi everyone I am currently working on my final dissertation for the MSc. course in BIM and Integrated Design at the University of Salford. My research aims to explore the role that companies specialized in providing BIM implementation services to other AEC organizations have in facilitating the uptake of BIM in the industry. I have found that this area of knowledge of the BIM implementation is relatively unexplored even though nowadays there is a considerable number of consultancy companies making business around it.

I am asking for the assistence of consultants for BIM implementation that would be interested in cooperating with my research through an interview, regarding the influence of external agents providing and facilitating the intra-organizational change/innovation that BIM implementation represents. Your perspectives on this matter would be highly appreciated for the development of my research.

Hi Guys,

     I have been trying to search around what is the deliverable difference between LOD 400 and LOD 450 but till date I fail to find any solid study or guide that can clearly specify the difference between both of them. Appreciate if anyone of you guys can shade some light on this

I would really value your input towards my dissertation research, even if you haven’t heard of the technology discussed, any response helps me to form an understanding of the field of research.

please see the link to the web-based questionnaire: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdRkgSx7siZTU6dtppad6TYm1squynkv8qFrNJmG3hx2EWCAA/viewform?usp=sf_link

Also see the introduction to the questionnaire below:

Research Title: Investigating Radio Frequency Identification Devices (RFID) in construction

You are invited to take part in a research study. Before you decide whether or not to take part, please understand why the research is being done and what it will involve.

Some Academics have recognised that there can be marked benefits related to the introduction of Radio Frequency Identification Devices (RFID) in construction, and specifically if this technology is used in association with other “real-time” surveying, data tracking and smart building technologies. The study aims to investigate the uses, links to other technologies, barriers and inform a framework for future implementation of the technology.

The study is Qualitative questionnaires and interviews format, the questionnaire will take approximately 5 minutes. Your participation is voluntary and you can withdraw at any time, or omit a question.

I am a Student at Oxford Brookes University, the information will be used in relation to my dissertation research, and data will be kept securely at all times, Data generated in the course of the research will be kept for a period of ten years. Should you have any concerns contact ethics@brookes.ac.uk.

From personal experience, what are the drawbacks from the BIM Objects currently being offered by the major BIM Content Creation services?

Do they provide the suitable level of detail (LOD), are the guidance documents detailed enough? Do they provide support or aftercare? Do they offer value for money? Do they educate you? Are they BIM Level 2 compliant? What could be done better? Whats works?

Much appreciated!

Kudirat Ayinla , 05 June 2016 15:17

Hello Everyone, I am so sorry to bother you but your support is highly needed and valuable. I am a MSc student from Loughborough University and I am currently doing a research on 'BIM adoption strategies' which requires me to capture the thoughts of construction professionals. I have been finding it very challenging to get contacts and this is at the detriment of my research, I am using this medium to plead that you kindly spare about 5minutes to fill the survey.

The survey link is https://goo.gl/BU1r86

I will so much appreciate if you can grant my request. Many thanks for your cooperation.

Miguel Blasco Martin, 14 September 2015 11:39

We are specialists subcontractors who produce the construction and as built drawings information for the buildings envelope. Is there a requirement for the level of detail or definition at which specialists subcontractors like ourselves need to contribute within the CDE model in terms of geometric information to comply with level 2? If not, who is then responsible for amending the 3D model to reflect our As Built information?

Thanks
