  • Proposes practical approaches for automating the building code and standards-checking process in BIM workflow.
  • Examines the strengths and practical limitations for automating building regulatory compliance.
  • Presents the fundamentals of BIM systems including knowledge modeling, rules creation, reasoning procedures, and domain-specific query languages.
  • Provides an overview of the main existing systems for computerizing building codes and regulations and proposes improvements.
  • Examines numerous automated rule-based checking systems, such as Solibri, Jotne, CORENET, Statsbygg, and more.


This book will focus on how engineers, architects, and construction practitioners can benefit from automating code checking in building design. It will focus on building regulations-checking mechanisms that are defined by the relationship among various design and engineering information management and Building Information Modeling (BIM) systems, and how this automation will assist to streamline communication and dissemination of building design information among stakeholders. It will also explore the strengths and limitations for automating building regulatory compliance as well as proposing practical approaches for automating the building code and standards checking process in BIM workflow.
