  • ensure that all readers understand what BIM and are fully aware of the implications of BIM for them and their organisations
  • provides concise summaries of key aspects of BIM
  • ensure that all readers can begin to adopt this approach in future projects
  • includes industry case studies illustrating the use of BIM on large and small projects
