Aim of course

Iterative and integral project planning and BIM planning (3D, 4D, 5D-, ...-BIM) of a usefully complex architectural project:
.) design, engineering and construction of architure,
.) parametric 3D design, geometry optimization, automated drawings all the way to databases for claim management during and after construction, and
sharpening of social competence: Working together in groups of students.

Subject of course

1. Organize and build building information management tools:
.) Analysis of project fundamentals: Evaluation of tasks: BO, R + F, pre-draft/design, schedule framework, cost framework.
.) Project organization via a  "virtual project space " [PR]: Project phases, processes, tasks, interfaces and appointments of the project participants, communication modes, data and document management.
2. Integral project planning-project work (group work): 3D execution and detailed planning.
3. Termin-/Construction schedule planning (group work): 4D-BIM.
4. Cost planning (group work): 5D-BIM.
5. Public presentation of the project, defense of the theses, personal conclusion.

Additional information

Requirements are
.) willingness to work in a team,
.) good knowledge of CAD, 3D and graphic programmes,
.) basic knowledge of BIM programs, network technique and cost planning according to ÖN B 1801.1 and 1801.2.




Examination modalities

Presentation of the intermediate results, discourse with the project participants.
Public presentation and defence of the final results.
