Programme Highlights:

Buildings bring many environment impacts to our society, including energy consumption, carbon emission, and waste generation. In the building and construction sector, building information modeling (BIM) is a disruptive technology that is increasingly used for design and construction of our built asset, resulting in reduced error, enhanced communication, and improved automation and productivity. To support green buildings, BIM not only provides 3D representations that support model-based analyses, but also systematically manages and integrates information, thereby enabling other emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT). In this seminar, examples of integrating BIM with AI and IoT to support smart green buildings will be presented. Opportunities and challenges will also be discussed.
