Report
Building Information Modelling
Integration to the curricula
Dr Patricia Tzortzopoulos Fazenda
University of Salford, UK
Challenges for adoption
Obstacles for BIM adoption
– Misunderstandings of BIM concept (Kymmell, 2008)
– Lack of skills in industry (Young et al 2008; Sacks and
Barak 2010)
– Role of BIM as a tool/method in education and
industry is not yet fully understood (Clevenger et al
2010)
– Small number of universities teaching integrated
BIM
Need for education and training programmes
How to integrate BIM to the
curricula?
BIM at the centre of the processes
– Architecture? Multidisciplinary?
– From modelling to management?
What do Practitioners
want from BIM Education?
Rafael Sacks and Paul Teicholz
Main issues identified:
1. BIM is a Technology
2. BIM is a Communication Medium
3. BIM is a Collaborative Process
4. BIM requires an understanding of real-world
Building Construction
5. The Building Model should serve Multiple
Perspectives
Approach at the University
Salford
Three main themes: Sustainability, BIM, Lean
BIM principles
– Basic design, analysis and communication tool
– Focus on concepts & (lean) process changes
On-going activities
– PG: MSc programme ‘BIM and Integrated Design’
– UG: Integrate BIM teaching in Multidisciplinary
Project (MDP) module
MSc BIM and Integrated Design
Programme Aims
•Advanced knowledge on lean, integrated design processes with the
use of BIM technology
•Educate those involved with designing and managing (complex)
re/development of built environment
•Develop managerial, technical and interpersonal skills to deliver better
value through design

Final remarks
 There is a big push for adoption
 BIM is technically mature for uptake
 Efficient BIM-based processes are still under
development
 There are learning needs in practice
 Main benefits of BIM are in communication,
integration, testing and validation
 The main issue is a change in processes, not
technology
