BIM Demystified is a short, practical introduction to Building Information Modelling (BIM). Addressing BIM from the point of view of mainstream practice as opposed to a cutting-edge technological perspective, it offers a user-friendly yet thorough explanation of a subject which is often swamped by jargon and deluged with spin. Taking a wide view of BIM – encompassing business opportunity, Code of Conduct, cultural issues and the necessity for better legal arrangements too – the book’s chapters range from the BIM ingredients (including objects, parametrics, and standards), to the business case for BIM and how to implement it. BIM requires a shift in attitudes if its benefits are to be obtained – and this book will allow individuals at all levels in any practice to build a firmer understanding of the merits and wider application of the subject. It brings together both managers and technologists within businesses throughout the AECC chain to form better and more valuable propositions for built environment interventions.

With the UK government‘s 2016 BIM threshold approaching, support for small organisations on interpreting, filtering and applying BIM protocols and standards is urgently required. Many small UK construction industry supply chain firms are uncertain about what Level 2 BIM involves and are unsure about taking first steps towards having BIM capability. As digitisation, increasingly impacts on work practices, Getting to Grips with BIM offers an insight into an industry in change supplemented by practical guidance on managing the transition towards more widespread and integrated use of digital tools to manage the design, construction and whole life use of buildings.

This proceedings volume chronicles the papers presented at the 35th CIB W78 2018 Conference: IT in Design, Construction, and Management, held in Chicago, IL, USA, in October 2018. The theme of the conference focused on fostering, encouraging, and promoting research and development in the application of integrated information technology (IT) throughout the life-cycle of the design, construction, and occupancy of buildings and related facilities. The CIB – International Council for Research and Innovation in Building Construction – was established in 1953 as an association whose objectives were to stimulate and facilitate international cooperation and information exchange between governmental research institutes in the building and construction sector, with an emphasis on those institutes engaged in technical fields of research. The conference brought together more than 200 scholars from 40 countries, who presented the innovative concepts and methods featured in this collection of papers.

As an industrial process, construction is unique. The procurement processes used to achieve the successful completion of built assets requires a different approach to that adopted in most other industries, due to the design of buildings being bespoke and the sites being geographically varied. The procurement process is central to the success of any construction project and many of the problems which impact construction projects can be traced back to the procurement phase, so a good understanding of the methods of procurement, the development of a procurement strategy and the influence it has on project success is essential for all those working in the industry. Much has changed in the global construction industry since publication of the second edition of Building Procurement, for example the increase in debt burden of many major economies, widespread adoption of Building Information Modelling (BIM) Technology in the industry and the United Kingdom's exit from the European Union. This new edition has been rewritten to take account of these significant developments, but at its core it continues to provide a critical examination and review of current procurement practices in the UK, continental Europe (including EU procurement procedures), China, Middle East and Sub-Saharan Africa and the USA. It retains its original strong emphasis on the need for clients to establish achievable objectives which reflect the project business case and focuses on development of suitable strategies and management structures to meet those objectives in the current construction climate. Building Procurement will be essential reading for senior undergraduate and postgraduate students of construction management and practitioners working in all areas of construction management.

It is generally accepted that building information modeling (BIM) related technologies offer considerable advantages to many participants in the construction sector. Currently, there exists a whole range of commercially available BIM software platforms that are specialized to suit the functional needs of their main users. Contemporary Strategies and Approaches in 3-D Information Modeling is a critical scholarly resource that examines building information modeling and the integration of 3-D information in the urban built environments. Featuring coverage on a broad range of topics such as integrated project delivery, design collaboration, and 3-D model visualization, this book is geared towards engineers, architects, contractors, consultants, and facility managers seeking current research on methodologies, concepts, and instruments being used in the field of 3-D information modeling.

Masterplots II: British and Commonwealth Fiction Series reflects a growing awareness of a unique historical process: the development of English as an international language. The writers whose novels are discussed in these volumes represent an extraordinarily wide range of cultural experience - from Guyana to Nigeria, from Canada to Australia and from Ireland to India. They share a common historical experience - the mixed legacy of the British Empire - and even more important, a common language. Never before have so many speakers from so many different cultures shared a common tongue

Completely updated and revised, the second edition of International Financial Economics: Corporate Decisions in Global Markets applies the principles of financial economics to explain how international corporate finance decisions are made in the real world. Written from a practical, financial perspective versus one of pure economic theory, the text is divided into three sections. The first section provides a comprehensive discussion of exchange rates. The next section offers an in-depth look at a firm's foreign exchange exposure measurement and hedging. The material highlights the connection between foreign exchange exposure in profit and foreign exchange exposure in equity, as well as the impact of foreign currency debt and currency swaps. The third section examines overseas investment decisions in both countries integrated with the global financial market and those still segmented from it. Coverage emphasizes the cost of capital and accounting for overseas investments and hedging of foreign exchange risk. International Financial Economics: Corporate Decisions in Global Markets is ideal for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in global financial management. Features ·Employs a practical, financial perspective with real-world applications ·Includes expanded material on currency swaps to show their role in foreign exchange exposure management ·Offers a detailed description of economic foreign exchange exposure ·Provides additional material on overseas investment decisions when exchange rates are not correctly valued

Black Middle-Class Women and Pregnancy Loss: A Qualitative Inquiry is the first qualitative research case study of its kind focused on Black American born middle-class professional married women who have all lived through infant loss. This study examines the Infant Mortality disparity (blacks 12.40, whites 5.35) outside the poverty paradigm, with probable implications for minority groups in England and Wales, (having a similar racial history to the U.S) with Caribbean and Pakistani IM rates being more than twice that of white British babies.
