Abstract
Collaboration among project participants is key to the success of construction projects. When project information is not efficiently communicated or easily shared among project stakeholders, such conditions often lead to cost overruns and schedule delays. Particularly, this phenomenon can frequently be observed and further be augmented for industrialized constructive methods such as modular construction because changes in an execution phase are not typically allowed after the production process has begun. Although the efficiency of Building Information Modelling (BIM) applications have been proven in processes such as drafting, 3D modelling, and quantity takeoff, practices to increase collaboration and a knowledge-sharing environment have been slow to develop. This research proposes a framework to integrate stakeholder information and workflow by applying the (i3) concept (information, intelligence and innovation) and using tools such as ontology to comprehend the current process and adapt documents which have already been provided, such as cost estimations and construction drawings, using the BIM model as a database in which data is added, shared, and utilized for future processes beyond design purposes. Two case studies are presented in this thesis. In the first case study, the proposed framework is applied to a modular residential project in order to investigate the level of detail required, and automate the cost estimation process while liking the BIM model to the simulation model of the manufacturing production line in order to estimate labour cost based on distributions, thereby quantifying the uncertainties of the construction process as well as opportunities to enhance the workflow between the design, Project Management Office (PMO), and manufacturing departments during the design and manufacturing stages. Furthermore, as presented in the second case study, this framework is adapted to assist general contractors during the coordination and tendering phases of a multi-storey building.
