In this book, we collected 35 excellent chapters from around the world. In addition to the rich contents, we would like to highlight that:

  • We have made a dedication of the book to Professor Chuck Eastman, who sadly passed away during the process when the book was edited but his legacy as a pioneer of BIM, a visionary to the industry, and an inspiration to the editors, contributors, and researchers, will prevail.
  • Two eminent figures, Mr. Patrick MacLeamy and Ms. Ada Fung, have provided two excellent Forewords to this book.
  • Four endorsers including Professor Kincho H. Law (Professor, Stanford University), Mr. Diao Zhizhong (Chairman, Gloden Company Ltd.), Mr. Jon Antevy (Founder of e-Builder), and Professor Keith Hampson (President, International Council for Research and Innovation in Building and Construction [CIB]) have provided strong endorsement to this book.

We hope that you can promote this book via your channels, such as your libraries, CNBR, LinkedIn, Facebook, and so on.
