BIM in Healthcare Infrastructure explores the application and implementation of BIM technology in the planning, design and construction of healthcare infrastructure.
Incorporating BIM within an internationally-applicable framework, this highly-illustrated reference guide uses case study organisations to navigate the key challenges to implementing BIM in the healthcare sector, such as motivating and training staff, overcoming resistance to change and developing the business case.
The larger obstacles to implementing BIM, lack of suitable legal framework, and absence of appropriate investment in BIM software are also discussed.
