Building Information Modelling Course Syllabus
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a process focused on the development, use and transfer
of a centralized data-rich virtual project model that facilitates documentation, design exploration,
model-based quantity take off and estimating, interference checking, construction coordination
and sequencing, digital fabrication and 3D building information visualization.
In this course, students will learn BIM’s use in the architecture, engineering and construction
(AEC) industry (by different disciplines), examine geometry, spatial relationships, building
information, quantities and properties of building components, and understand the benefit and
improvement areas BIM process offers. Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) is a project delivery
approach that is almost a prerequisite for successful BIM projects. It integrates people, systems,
business structures and practices into a process that helps optimization of project results,
increases value to the owner and end user, reduces waste, and maximizes efficiency through all
phases of design, fabrication, construction and life-cycle of the structure.
This course focuses on the role of BIM in the AEC industry and it covers recent developments in
the area of IPD, both of which have a great potential to better project outcomes and maximize
efficiency. In addition, the course brings cutting edge and emerging technology solutions into the
classroom and tries to link these solutions into the BIM environment. This year, the course
focuses on uses of laser scanning in construction operations and development of a BIM model by
using laser point clouds. LIDAR is a remote sensing technology that measures distance by
illuminating a target with a laser and analyzing the reflected light.
Provide familiarity with current BIM technologies
• Provide understanding of the shift from 2D representation to 3D simulation
• Provide understanding of new means of coordination and collaboration of design and
• Provide understanding for linking and maintaining continuity of existing and designed
BIM information and other vital information, such as vendors for specific materials,
P a g e 2
location of details and quantities required for estimation, bidding and scheduling, into
the model
• Provide understanding of new project delivery systems and technologies for ‘integrated
• Provide an outlook to how innovative technologies could be integrated into the current
AEC practices.

We will use various software solutions in this course. Below is a list of solutions and instructions
for downloading them.
Autodesk Revit 2013 or 2014 – FREE for students: http://students.autodesk.com/
Since 2013, Autodesk has integrated Revit Architecture, Structure, and MEP all into a single
software simply named Revit. There are no fundamental differences between Revit 2013 and 2014
except a few improvements which can be found on the following link:
Autodesk Navisworks Manage 2013 or 2014 - http://students.autodesk.com/
NavisWorks Manage 2014 has added a few features to the clash detection tool to improve the
quality of clash reports and to better distinguish and categorize different clashes. Some of the
new added features can be found on the following link:
Please go to http://students.autodesk.com, register and download Revit 2013 and Navisworks
Manage 2013 with your USC e-mail address. Once on the student site, go to the “Free
Software>Download Center” and scroll down to Autodesk Revit.
Revit and Navisworks are PC only, but can be used on a Mac with Boot Camp (ships free with
your Mac: go to Applications/Utilities/Boot Camp Assistant) or Parallels
(http://www.parallels.com) that allows a Mac to run Windows. NOTE: to run Revit on a Mac,
you must have a copy of the Windows operating system.

It is crucial that students turn in whatever they have on the due date. NO assignment will be
accepted late. Assignments are due the beginning of the class as specified in the class schedule
below. An incomplete grade will only be issued when a student is unable to complete the work
because of documented illness. A letter from your physician will be required documentation.
Midterm Assignment: 2D drawings of a typical campus building will be provided to the
students. Students (in teams) will model (architectural and structural) this campus building
based on their Revit knowledge acquired through the in-class-tutorials and self-practice. Teams
can divide the work by discipline or by floor or any other way they choose. The goal of this
exercise is to understand the collaborative effort of modeling and coordination between different
disciplines. A short report and milestone submissions (see the schedule below) are required with
the submission of the BIM models. The report should clearly state each team member’s
contribution. More details will be provided.
Assignment 1: Each student will research one BIM authoring tool that is available in the market.
Students will identify the tool they will research and inform the instructors by September 24,
2013. Students will prepare a report outlining the strengths and weaknesses of the tool they have
selected. It is expected that students will do a bibliographical research and also download the
software, import their model to their selected BIM authoring software and explore software
functionalities and capabilities. A short presentation and a write up, on the above-mentioned
P a g e 5
areas as well as the interoperability issues between Revit and the selected software, will be
prepared and delivered on the due date of the assignment.
Final Assignment: Teams will perform interference checking and 4D simulation using
Navisworks, Solibri and Synchro. Teams will use the models (architectural and structural) they
have developed in their mid term assignment. The MEP model of the building will be provided.
Teams will present their work and findings on the pros and cons of each tool. In addition, the
teams will research other BIM tools available for construction management and present their
analysis. A short report and milestone submissions (see the schedule below) are required with
the submission of the BIM models. The report should clearly state each team member’s
contribution. More details will be provided.
Extra Credit Assignment: Personal initiative and enthusiasm expressed for the subject matter
taken up in this class shall be acknowledged via extra credit points. To receive extra credit points,
submit a one or two paragraph memo (e-mail) describing your extra credit activity, make a minivideo
presentation based on your research/discovery and you will receive extra points (5 points
out of 100 total points). Extra credit activity is a great way to raise your grade. Examples of extra
credit projects:
§ 5-minute video presentation of any additional building you modeled (self prepared)
§ 5-minute video presentation of a productivity tip you learned (self prepared)
Grades will be based on completeness and quality of assignments, attendance and participation.
