Abstract

This paper considers how homeowners can benefit from the use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) during the occupancy phase of residential buildings, and the issues that may arise, alongside the authors’ proposed solutions. Four key deliverables have been considered; economic, social and environmental benefits, and the facilitation of efficient information management. These deliverables are to be achieved through home automation, the availability of building information, virtual house viewings and big data analytics. The core issues are considered to be user accessibility, ownership and viability. A “Home BIM” cloud application has been proposed as a workable solution. The application is based on a data-rich BIM model, enhanced with occupancy data using the Internet of Things (IoT). The outputs discussed include instructing actuators for home automation, and accessible information and functions displayed via a user-friendly interface. A roadmap to delivering such an application has been presented.
