Abstract

By enabling BIM technology, a building can be represented by a set of objects that carry detailed information about how they are constructed and also capture the relationship with other objects in the building model. Smart BIM objects can be classified as specific components encapsulating typical building rules and relations that can be predicted and defined by a few parameters and constraints. A framework is developed to show how a smart BIM object is developed. This paper presents the method of developing smart BIM object capable of better-informing design decision. To demonstrate the usefulness of smart BIM objects, a cloud BIM object library is developed and tested by academia and industry.
