Details : Building Information Modelling (BIM) is an important technology which use is a definite trend that we should learn and use now in order to gain the best benefit of it. In order to allow members to update and improve their skills on the area of BIM, QSD is going to organize a series of CPD talks and workshops about BIM in 2014. We know that BIM can help QS to generate quantities for measurement and estimating purposes. However, the reliability of BIM measurement depends on the accuracy and completeness of 3D BIM model. More accurate quantity of models will definitely give a better outcome in the costing process. In this talk, the speaker will examine various methods of pulling out and adding information from/into BIM models for better cost analysis, and will focus on the following aspects: 1. How does QS utilize the information stored in the Revit®? 2. How does QS add extra parameters within the CostX® for generation of cost reports? 3. How does QS conduct cross check such that the information is correct and accurate enough for measurement or estimating purposes?
