  • BIM in Principle and in Practice, 2nd Edition
  • Covering the principles behind building information modelling (BIM), its current use in practice and how it may develop in the future, BIM in Principle and in Practice provides construction professionals with an overview of this emerging field to enable informed discussions with clients and colleagues.

    BIM is a managed approach to the creation, collation and exchange of shared intelligent and structured data and information across a project. As its use grows there is an increasing need for construction practitioners to understand the principles behind it and how work practices must change to accommodate it. Full collaboration across the entire project team and standardised, well-structured information are at the heart of BIM and will enable enormous efficiencies in the construction industry. BIM in Principle and in Practice is intended to assist in understanding BIM and how it can be used and to provide answers to many of the common questions.

    Benefits of BIM in Principle and Practice, Second Edition:

    • - Completely up-to-date information on the emerging practice of BIM to inform construction professionals
    • - Applicable to the UK and international market for companies working internationally
    • - Practical guide to contemporary BIM principles and use, with illustrative case studies
    • - Relevant to all companies and all projects, whatever their size
    • - Provides a vision for the future of BIM development and new forms of contract that may be required
    • - Updated to include UK Government Strategy for 2016 – 2025, updates to PAS 1192 and BS 1192 documents, Digital Scanning of existing buildings, Digital Plan of Works, Other BIM Model types for specific purposes (services, IT, electrics etc.), Development of BIM Protocols and ‘contracts’ and/or contract terms, Insurances being used, the development of BIM in the EU and internationally, and to include case studies

    Providing insight for all construction professionals – consultants, contractors, sub-contractors, designers, architects, project managers, surveyors, site managers, facilities managers, lawyers – and their clients, and relevant to all companies and projects, whatever their size and geographical market, the advice and illustrative case studies within this book form the ultimate practical guide to current practice and a valuable vision for the future.

  • Global Risk Assessment and Strategic Planning: An introduction and facilitator’s guide to the GRASP Methodology
  • GRASP is a combined risk-based methodology for management planning and decision making in projects. GRASP uses multi-stakeholder perspectives to enlarge the project team’s knowledge base and increase awareness of the circumstances in which the project can make real progress. 

    The book provides a practical, infinitely scalable process for managing project risk, improving project delivery planning and executing stakeholder engagement programmes; all intended to increase the likelihood of better project outcomes. As a 'how-to' manual, the book combines user-friendly information with examples that allow a practitioner to use the GRASP methodology in an efficient and effective manner.

    Global Risk Assessment and Strategic Planning:

    • - delivers a flexible, methodological approach to create a richer picture of a project for all parties operating at any level in the participating organisation

    • - helps improve managers’ ability to plan, assess and understand their projects and the risks inherent in them
    • - provides managers with a more informed view of their project, which in turn helps them to make more informed decisions
    • - contributes to a manager’s toolkit by being an essential and practical everyday facilitation aid.

    GRASP has been designed to promote a culture of openness and positive attitudes to risk, stakeholder engagement and problem solving within projects. The methodology has been developed over several years and is in regular use by a number of forward-looking project sponsors and project management teams.
