Research into the Building Information Model during the Whole Building Life-Cycle
Construction project life-cycle management should be based on the visualization of a virtual building, through the establishment of a Building Information Model in the phase of architectural design as a life-cycle information carrier to realize complete information integration. This enables all phases and territories of the whole building life-cycle to achieve in-time information-sharing so as to overcome traditional territory management pattern. This also improves the running mode and information management during the phases of design, costing, construction and operation.
