A Conceptual Framework for a BIM-Based Collaboration Platform Supported by Mobile Computing
The construction industry has been known as a complicated environment with respect to the multiple phases and multidisciplinary participants. The emergence of new concepts and information technologies including BIM, IFC, Web, wireless networks and Mobile Computing, give the construction industry a powerful potential to build a platform allowing project participants to work collaboratively. This paper reports a conceptual framework for a BIM-based collaboration platform that contains the model of BIM-supported integration for construction processes and the technological architecture for the system. This paper concludes with suggestions for further developing and testing of the conceptual framework.
