University of Florida College of Design, Construction and Planning Interim Assistant Dean for Graduate Education Nawari Nawari’s book, Building Information Modeling: Automated Code Checking and Compliance Processes, is available now. It focuses on how engineers, architects and construction practitioners can benefit from automating code checking in building design.
According to Nawari, the book introduces an innovative approach for automating the building permit process, which is a major issue because it is a tedious manual process. It can take a long time for construction project and adversely impact the cost of the project.
“This book provides an innovative solution to this problem by offering an automated process that is efficient and cost-effective,” Nawari said. “A number of cities and counties in Florida have recently shown interest in the subject and we are in negotiations for contracts to automate their permitting processes.”
“This is the first book on the subject and aims at the concept of automation in the building design process by utilizing Building Information Modeling (BIM) to assist in computerizing and streamlining the communication and compliance verification of building design data against codes and regulations to enhance design efficiency and cost-effectiveness,” Nawari added.
