BIM technology and methodology for smart heritage
Building information modelling (BIM) is a virtual design tool offering 3D detailed modelling for a building project before actual construction begins. It allows for accurate estimates and helps prevent mistakes or job conflicts; it can also help identify true dimensions and costs and aid spatial analysis. Ultimately, this modelling provides visualisation. While BIM is promising for the design and management of historical architecture, core issues of the BIM technology must be adapted to meet the specific demands of reconstruction cycles and the collaborative involvement of architects, engineers and contractors. The EU-funded Quad2BIM project will help smart heritage make efficient use of BIM technology. The project will develop a novel methodology adjusted to a cooperative approach. Quad2BIM will be applied on samples of baroque architecture in Portugal to test a number of integrated digital techniques.
