Building an Information Model
This book uses the same graphic
style found in all our construction books to illustrate the construction
of a mid-rise office building. This is a great book for those
who need or want to see and understand every step of the construction
of a commercial building.
It uses 3D construction models
to organize and detail the construction methods used to build
this building, including layout, excavation, foundations, concrete
and steel framing, and the exterior shell and window walls.
The book shows how construction
models can be used to manage risk, reduce waste, and enhance jobsite
Building SIMPLE helps readers
understand how to use construction models as visual explanations
in support of their own work. The interactive format sets the
stage for an ongoing series of process related, construction and
industry related manufacturing books.
