The development of a BIM based building measurement learning tool

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The paper discusses the development of an integrated tool for teaching and learning building measurement. A 3D CAD IFC-compliant building information model of a small two-storey residential building was created complete with electrical and hydraulic services and all specification information using Archicad. A complete bill of quantities was measured from the BIMusing Buildsoft, and exported to Microsoft Office. The exported dimensions and quantities were used to produce a fully annotated version of the BQ. The outcome is a package comprising a CD-ROM and a conventional book. The CD containing the BIM, the Buildsoft files, a 3D model viewer and a complete set of drawings extracted from the model and saved in PDF format. The book contains a complete BQ in conventional format plus aversion of the BQ with each item shown with its take-off and some notes explaining the measurement process and the relevant clauses from the Australian Method of Measurement.
