An IDP-BIM Framework for Reshaping Professional Design Practices

Publication: Construction Research Congress 2010: Innovation for Reshaping Construction Practice

Abstract

Integrated design process (IDP) and Building Information Modeling (BIM) have been recognized as two approaches to address the problem of fragmentation in the construction industry. Adopting these processes and tools nonetheless requires drastic changes in design practices. There is a need for generating and formalizing new knowledge practices, and discarding obsolete ones. However, traditional approaches to create and transfer this new knowledge cannot cope with this need. This research builds on social learning theories, such as activity theory, to propose a situated learning environment in which BIM-related technologies are structured in an IDP framework. This learning environment is designed as a laboratory where traditional practices in planning, managing and designing construction projects can be challenged. BIM and simulation models, together with collaboration tools are used as boundary objects to break barriers between professional practices. Design teams, by adapting to this new environment, generate new practice knowledge. This knowledge is captured using ethnographic methods to enhance and consolidate the IDP framework. The proposed approach contributes to accelerating the co-generation of new knowledge practices within the proposed environment.
