More and more delays are being caused on construction sites due to a lack of the correct information necessary to complete the project within the set time frames and cost effectively.
The object of this treatise is to investigate the appropriateness of a BIM as a tool to be used to solve this information management problem. The idea of BIM is explored as well as the current BIM software available to the industry. Finally a case study is conducted to see the effects the use of a BIM has on a construction project.
