The main aim of the BHIMM (Built Heritage Information Modelling/Management) project is to introduce a new and innovative methodology, based on the so-called Building Information Modeling (BIM), capable of improving the current sustainable preservation policies of the architectural heritage, here including monitoring, management and retrofit. The research project focuses on the definition of graphic standards for the survey, the design and the Facility Management of public buildings and on the creation of a hierarchy of project data in order to improve the quality of building design and construction processes. Specifically, through the Building Information Modeling, it is possible to introduce a new design approach by implementing the concept of software interoperability.
The expected result is to find which data should be included in the parametric “architectural” model and how they should be included in the design procedure.
