Implementation framework for bim-based risk management

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding


There is currently an imbalance with regards to the way that risks are treated in construction projects. Risks associated with structural failures as well as construction safety risks are often in focus while building performance risks (e.g. related to moisture or energy performance) receive less attention. These types of risks often disproportionately affect the end users/owners and can in many cases be avoided given adequate access to relevant knowledge by the process actors. The modern construction process, which relies heavily on digitization and automation, provides an opportunity for improving the awareness and management of building performance risks. The current paper presents a conceptual framework for the implementation of BIM-based risk management in the modern construction process. A knowledge delivery system is envisioned which will make risk relevant information available to the process actors thereby improving risk awareness and enabling risk informed decision making. In contrast with earlier implementation attempts, risk information will be made available to construction objects structured according to existing, commercially available, building classification system(s). An implemented system should provide automated support to identification of potential risks associated with different construction solutions and enable the process actors to make informed decisions concerning the treatment of these risks in construction projects.
