    Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a global phenomenon which is gaining significant momentum across the world. Currently there is little information on how to realise and monitor benefits from implementing BIM across the life-cycle of a built environment asset. This book provides a practical and strategic framework to realise value from implementing BIM by adapting Benefit Realisation Management theory. It presents an approach for practitioners aiming to implement BIM across the life-cycle of built environment assets, including both buildings and infrastructure.

    Additionally, the book features:

    • wide-ranging information about BIM, the challenges of monitoring progress towards benefit goals and the greater context of implementation;
    • a set of dictionaries that illustrate: how benefits can be achieved, what the benefit flows are and the enabling tools and processes that contribute to achieving and maximising them;
    • a suite of measures that can serve to monitor progress with examples of how they have been used to measure benefits from BIM;
    • real-world examples from across the world and life-cycle phases that show how these benefits can be achieved;
    • and information on international maturity and competency measures to complement the value realisation framework.

    Including a blend of academic and industry input, this book has been developed in close collaborative consultation with industry, government and international research organisations and could be used for industry courses on BIM benefits and implementation for asset management or by universities that teach BIM-related courses.
