Over the last few months printing presses have been kept busy thanks to the launch of a host of new titles focussing on both the underpinning theory and practicalities of implementing a BIM approach.

Here we round-up some notable titles from the past few months and at what’s planned in the year ahead. We produced a similar reading list for 2016 and you can find a range of currently published titles on various aspects of BIM noted as part of our article, ‘What is BIM?'

BIM and Quantity Surveying
Authors
Stever Pittard and Peter Sell
Publisher
Routledge, 2016 / ISBN: 9780415870436
About this title This guide is designed to help quantity surveying practitioners and students understand what BIM means for them, and how they should prepare to work successfully on BIM compliant projects. The case studies show how firms at the forefront of this technology, such as Davis Langdon, have integrated core quantity surveying responsibilities like cost estimating, tendering, and development appraisal into high profile BIM projects. In addition to this, the implications for project management, facilities management, contract administration and dispute resolution are also explored through case studies, making this a highly valuable guide for those in a range of construction project management roles.

The papers presented at Building Information Modelling 2017 (BIM) are from a range of forums, including plenary papers, workshops, seminars, and panel sessions. The conference was attended by experts from industry, practice and academia, sharing their work on key topics, the development of innovative solutions, and the identification future trends.The volume gives details of how BIM tools and techniques have fundamentally altered the manner in which modern construction teams operate, the processes through which designs are evolved, and the relationships between conceptual, detail, construction and life cycle stages. BIM is essentially value-creating collaboration throughout the entire life-cycle of an asset, underpinned by the statistics attached to them and has far and reaching consequences on both building procurement and infrastructure.
