Anotace / Annotation

Ideas underlying BIM are about 50 years old. The contemporary notion of BIM as Building Information Model is about 20 years old. BIM has transferred from the academic world to practice. BIM adaptation is a change proces that affects almost every aspect dealing with the Building & Construction Industry. Adaptation will only succeed if practice and academia keep cooperating on BIM. This presentation takes as starting point BIM 5 years ago (at the first BIM-Day), describes how developments in Academia have occurred in the past 5 years, and looks ahead to the next 5 years.
