Procurement route and Building Information Modelling (BIM) implementation effect on sustainable higher education refurbishment projects

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Procurement routes currently applied in Higher Education (HE) predate the use of life-cycle Building Information Modelling (BIM) for the delivery of construction projects. To date, little has been done to align the various procurement routes used in refurbishing HE buildings with the novel opportunities offered via BIM. The importance of HE estate that it is nearly as large as the total National Health Service (NHS) estate and that both of these are significantly larger than the Government’s mandated estate. This paper is a part of an on-going research project to determine whether procurement approaches influence the ability to use Building Information Modeling (BIM) techniques to deliver sustainable refurbished buildings in the higher education (HE) sector.
