Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
The BIM Handbook presents the technology and processes behind BIM to aid architects, engineers, contractors and sub-contractors, construction and facility owners (AECO). The BIM Handbook combines in-depth technical background, business process discussion of each of the major professional groups in AECO, and offers guidelines for assessment, adoption and use. It includes real world case studies identifying both the benefits and successes of BIM, and study questions for professionals, educators and students to engage in discussions about the many issues with respect to implementing and transitioning to BIM.

The concepts underlying BIM have been evolving for a quarter century, as the book makes clear. In the past few years, however, market drivers and technology advances have converged to produce software tools that have an extraordinary positive impact on the design and construction of buildings. In the industry scramble to take advantage of this potential, there has been much confusion about what BIM is, how to use it and who benefits from it. The BIM Handbook tackles all three questions.
The Second Edition (2011) has introduced important refinements, updates and new information. Every chapter has been updated, but two are of special note. Chapter 2, which addresses BIM Design Tools and Parametric Modeling, has been expanded to include a very complete yet palatable explanation of how building information modeling software works. The explanation is designed to assist professionals in understanding BIM software performance issues and in making intelligent choices when selecting that software. The evaluations of a range of BIM products have also been updated. Chapter 9, BIM Case Studies, includes six new case studies that did not appear in the First Edition. These showcase and thoughtfully comment on BIM use in a broad range of project types, using a variety of software products,around the world.
You can read a more detailed review of this book in my AEC technology publication, AECbytes: [...]
In a very similar manner, this BIM Handbook is not "what you see is what you get". It appears to be a book, in fact, it is a catalyst, a dynamic interactive tool that changes the way design and production professionals accomplish their work. It seems to me virtually impossible to read this book and remain rooted in traditional inefficiencies, in outdated practices.
As a catalyst, of course, this book is hard to simply "read", because it is initiating transformative action in real time as one is going thru its chapters. The layout of the book is logical, its progression and presentations crystal clear. It contains many helpful graphics and charts, as well as direct instructions for newcomers to this field to achieve a measure of competence in it. The BIM Handbook is an obvious choice for university level classes, and for professional offices in construction management.
After eight thoroughly informative chapters, the authors give to the reader in Chapter Nine very useful examples of BIM applications. I also appreciated the authors' efforts to describe the current software systems available, and their intended purposes.
BIM Handbook is a must have companion for anyone in this field desiring integration into the leading edge of today's design / build world. I recommend BIM Handbook unequivocally.
Authors are very competent and they put lots of effort to prepare and organize this material (this is one of the best organized book I have ever read).
