Bim for Landscape

BIM (Building Information Modelling) is transforming working practices across the built environment sector, as clients, professionals, contractors and manufacturers throughout the supply chain grasp the opportunities that BIM presents. The first book ever to focus on the implementation of BIM processes in landscape and external works, BIM for Landscape will help landscape professionals understand what BIM means for them. This book is intended to equip landscape practitioners and practices to meet the challenges and reap the rewards of working in a BIM environment - and to help professionals in related fields to understand how BIM processes can be brought into landscape projects. BIM offers significant benefits to the landscape profession, and heralds a new chapter in inter-disciplinary relationships. BIM for Landscape shows how BIM can enhance collaboration with other professionals and clients, streamline information processes, improve decision-making and deliver well-designed landscape projects that are right first time, on schedule and on budget. This book looks at the organisational, technological and professional practice implications of BIM adoption. It discusses in detail the standards, structures and information processes that form BIM Level 2-compliant workflows, highlighting the role of the landscape professional within the new ways of working that BIM entails. It also looks in depth at the digital tools used in BIM projects, emphasising the 'information' in Building Information Modelling, and the possibilities that data-rich models offer in landscape design, maintenance and management. BIM for Landscape will be an essential companion to the landscape professional at any stage of their BIM journey.

"The book proves that BIM is relevant to our profession and that even though the guidance documentation uses terms we may not instantly recognise, it can be applied to our work. It isn't evangelical about BIM but presents a positive view of its value for the landscape sector. The claims for the gains that can be made by moving into BIM are measured, which makes the argument all the more persuasive." - Claire Thirwall, "Those experienced in BIM will find this a pacey recap of the fundamentals and will probably take more from the examples of more practical application, showing how principles translate to best practice in the context of actual landscape projects. Those involved in traditional landscape projects and wondering just how the digital revolution will impact will find among the pages a well-informed friend to guide them along the pathway to future ways of working and a springboard to next steps. The Institute's involvement also means that the book dovetails with the LI's own masterclass events to, cumulatively, offer an excellent primer on digital construction for landscape. We expect more to follow the Insitute's lead." - Richard McPartland, editor,
