Abstract

According to the several international research and development articles, completed building plans that take care of constructability issues, contributes the achievement of construction objectives of time, cost and quality.A good constructability improves construction performance, productivity and quality. Building information modeling (BIM) has the similar effect to construction. BIM simulates the construction project in a virtual environment. It is possible to make constructability adjustments in the model, and practice construction before it is actualized.
