The Impact of Building Information Modelling (BIM) On the role of the Quantity Surveyor


Coar, Darren (2016) The Impact of Building Information Modelling (BIM) On the role of the Quantity Surveyor. [Dissertation]

This dissertation is intended to undertake research into Building Information Modelling, in particular to identify its capabilities and limits and to more so establish how the quantity surveyor may be affected as a direct result of BIM. The field of research will pay particular attention into the influence of BIM in modern day construction. This will involve interrogating the current scale of operation within the industry, determining what duties may change and what could be of advantage to the quantity surveyor. A quantitative research method was selected to be conducted by way of a questionnaire survey. The primary data was collected and analysed by a descriptive statistic method. Overall the research indicates the industry, and in particular quantity surveyors, are aware of BIM and are conscious of the benefits that can be offered to the QS. It highlights how the surveyor should act now in order to keep up with the times and not get left behind.

Recently, a silence revolution has been taking position which will basically alter the very material of the audiovisual plan and addition business. This revolution is the greater than before use of Building Information Modeling (BIM). This study investigates the effects of Building Information Modeling on construction project productivity and Cost. The study sample was (50) managers of construction projects in Jordan. The researcher used descriptive method and developed a questionnaire to collect data. The results of the study showed that the mean of study paragraphs came high within field which measures the role of using Buildings Information Modeling in the cost of the project, t the mean of the paragraphs of the study came high within the field , which measures the role of using Building Information Modeling on productivity of construction, and that the differences was statistically significant for field which states "the role of the using Building Information Modeling in th...

Since the publication of Sir John Egan’s report on the state of the UK construction industry 15 years ago (Egan, 1998), there have been remarkable improvements. The UK’s newest 2012 HM Government Report challenges the industry to step forward and embrace technological change. Though, as with every industry, sector, or organisation, the need for continuous and sustainable improvement continues to push the boundaries and is slow in acceptance. The construction industry is no exception to this phenomenon. As cost is a major factor in any construction project, there is an ever growing need to keep it at manageable levels, while still seeking to achieve the desired budget, quality and delivering on time. Innovation in information, communication, technology and process management has contributed to making this achievable. The industry has witnessed a radical change in the form of Building Information Modelling (BIM). This has revolutionised the delivery approach to construction projects. Evidence of a quantum leap into the realm of BIM has been reported in various forms such as journal articles, industry reports, magazines and case studies. New project delivery processes and approaches to delivering construction projects, such as Integrated Project Delivery (IPD), have been developed as well as Lean Construction, which have been pioneered in the USA and the UK. Better efficiency and collaboration between project stakeholders on a global scale have been engendered on complex projects in France, China the UK and USA. Overall, BIM has witnessed positive adoption in China, the USA, Europe and Australia. This tends to portray an overwhelming support and benefit of BIM in the construction industry. On the other hand, little has been done to determine the economics and the added value of BIM to the construction sector and society holistically. This presents a major challenge for investors in determining what the real value of adopting this approach to current and future projects will be. If BIM is to take-­‐off and adopted holistically by all stakeholders in the AEC industry, then a better understanding of its economic value must be rectified. Currently, there is no standardised methodology or approach in determining its economic value, which has been highlighted in this report. Current efforts have been made by way of investment appraisals such as Net Present Value (NPV), Discounted Cash Flow (DCF), and Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA), yet this has been engaged at the micro-­‐level of organizations. Hence, its application at a macro global level is not robust enough as other factors that affect world economies are not considered. This report draws attention to the above issues and proffers an approach to overcoming this challenge. Within the report, benefits of BIM have been highlighted. Moreover the challenges experienced by industry experts have been elucidated. Finally an approach to determining the economic benefit of BIM has been offered. This uses the economic concept of Total Factor Productivity (TFP). Consequently, in order for BIM to be successful there has to be a paradigm shift from traditional silo disciplines of architecture, engineering and construction to a more collaborative management practice, which stipulates a process management, operations management and lean management approach that will create an overall workforce with enhanced skills, supported by information and knowledge technologies.
