BIM in Healthcare Infrastructure: Planning, Design and Construction
English books/ April 24, 2017

Price: BIM in Healthcare Infrastructure is a guide to the implementation and application of BIM technology in the planning, design and construction of healthcare infrastructure to improve time- and cost-effectiveness in delivering zero carbon healthcare facilities that have a positive effect on staff and patient health. Starting with an introduction and overview of BIM, the guide goes on to detail the use of BIM in the planning, design and construction of healthcare infrastructure – complex buildings characterised by elaborate building services, structural elements or components and a variety of building systems. The key challenges to implementing BIM in this sector, such as motivating and training staff, overcoming resistance to change and developing the business case are highlighted through the inclusion of international case studies. These case studies are further analysed to draw out lessons that can be learned and applied to future healthcare facilities construction as well as generic lessons that can be applied to all sectors and the construction industry as a whole.

BIM data Integration, Framework and Information Visualization: for Virtual Design, Construction and Operation
English books/ April 24, 2017

Price: Virtual design and construction (VDC) is the management of integrated multi-disciplinary performance models of design–construction projects including building design and construction projects, work processes, and organizations.Building information modeling (BIM) is a modeling technology that represents physical and functional characteristics of buildings digitally. BIM is an explicit tool to implement VDC.To increase construction industry productivity with the VDC system, it is necessary to improve these methods and the environment for work performance.To achieve this objective, technology development and application as well as public support and developments in systems and environments are required.In this book, obstacles to supporting the VDC system in the public domain are analyzed, and support system development is considered. Also, to integrate information model between BIM, GIS and heterogeneous database related to facility, energy management, the integration method including visualization is described.These technologies and framework can be used for the purpose of developing smart building, smart construction and smart city.

Interior Design Using Autodesk Revit 2016
English books/ April 24, 2017

Price: The intent of this book is to provide the interior design student a well-rounded knowledge of Autodesk Revit tools and techniques. These skills can then be applied to enhance professional development in both academia and industry. The overall premise of the book is to learn Revit while developing the interior of a two story law office. The reader is provided an architectural model with established columns, beams, exterior walls, minimal interior walls and roofs in which to work. This allows more emphasis to be placed on interior design rather than primary architectural elements. The chapters chronology generally follows the typical design process. Students will find this book helps them more accurately and efficiently develop their design ideas and skills. The first chapter introduces the reader to Revit, Building Information Modeling (BIM) and the basics of opening, saving and creating a new project. The second provides a quick introduction to modeling basic elements in Revit including walls, doors, windows and more. This chapter is designed to show students how powerful Revit is and hopefully make them more excited about learning it. The remainder of the book is spent developing the interior space of the law office with an established space…

Design Integration Using Autodesk Revit 2016
English books/ April 24, 2017

Price: Design Integration Using Autodesk Revit 2016 is designed to provide you with a well-rounded knowledge of Autodesk Revit tools and techniques. All three flavors of the Revit platform are introduced in this textbook. This approach gives you a broad overview of the Building Information Modeling (BIM) process. The topics cover the design integration of most of the building disciplines: Architectural, Interior Design, Structural, Mechanical, Plumbing and Electrical. Civil is not covered, but adding topography to your model is. Each book comes with a disc containing numerous video presentations of the written material as well as bonus chapters.

Autodesk Revit 2017 (R1) Architecture: Conceptual Design & Visualization: Imperial – Autodesk Authorized Author
English books/ April 24, 2017

Price: As architects and designers start a project, they frequently think about the overall massing of a building or the area of the footprint. The Autodesk® Revit® software, using its powerful Building Information Modeling (BIM) engine, includes tools for creating mass elements that can be modified into many shapes. You can then apply walls, roofs, and floors to them to continue designing. You can also access space planning tools for setting up areas for rooms and also applying colors for them to show the connections. For presentations, you can create, embellish, and render perspective views. The objective of the Autodesk® Revit® 2017 (R1) Architecture: Conceptual Design & Visualization student guide is to enable students who have worked with the Autodesk Revit software to expand their knowledge in the areas of Conceptual Design, including massing studies, space planning, visualization, and rendering. Topics Covered Create In-Place Conceptual Mass elements Create building elements from massing studies Use Rooms and Areas for space planning and analysis Create perspectives, sketches, exploded views, and solar studies Render views that include materials, lighting, and enhancements such as people and plants.
