The papers presented at Building Information Modelling 2017 (BIM) are from a range of forums, including plenary papers, workshops, seminars, and panel sessions. The conference was attended by experts from industry, practice and academia, sharing their work on key topics, the development of innovative solutions, and the identification future trends. The volume gives details of how BIM tools and techniques have fundamentally altered the manner in which modern construction teams operate, the processes through which designs are evolved, and the relationships between conceptual, detail, construction and life cycle stages. BIM is essentially value-creating collaboration throughout the entire life-cycle of an asset, underpinned by the statistics attached to them and has far and reaching consequences on both building procurement and infrastructure. BIM 2017 papers cover topics such as: BIM in design coordination, Construction operations; Building operation and maintenance; BIM and sustainability; Collaborative working and practices; Facilities management integration and GIS integration; Automation in construction; Health and safety; BIM and interoperability; Life cycle project management; Cultural heritage; BIM and Robotics; Risk analysis and management and Emergency analysis, planning and management
