An investigation of the BIM for effective project delivery &challenges: Within the UAE construction Industry
English books / April 24, 2017

Price: Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry been requested to revisit the procurement and delivery process of construction upon Latham (1994) and Eagan (1998) reports. Those calls tried to re organize the process of construction industry since it has been highly criticized. In response to those wake up calls, the shift began the journey to Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) as a new procurement model, Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Lean construction as two major process developments. These three paradigms are regarded to overcome those criticism caused by weakened delivery process, lack of innovation, non-achievement of value for money, and fragmented nature of the industry. A revolutionized software technology, the BIM, is playing major role in successful achievement of IPD along with lean principles. This book investigates the effectiveness of existing project delivery methods and distinguishes the benefits of BIM when adopted. Further, it demonstrates the need for solid mechanism, framework, and legal instrumentals through major industry players. Buy on Amazon

With a focus on IPD in everyday operation, coverage includes a detailed explanation and analysis of IPD guidelines, and case studies that show how real companies are applying these guidelines on real-world projects. End-of-chapter questions help readers quickly review what they’ve learned, and the online forum allows them to share their insights and ideas with others who either have or are in the process of implementing IPD themselves. Integrating Project Delivery brings together the owners, architect, engineers, and contractors early in the development stage to ensure that problems are caught early, and to address them in a collaborative way. This book describes the parameters of this new, more efficient approach, with expert insight on real-world implementation.
