Abstract

This paper explores the chances for having 4D-BIM (four-dimensional building information modelling) as a central technology for construction site safety related planning activities. The paper is grounded in the on-going research project called BIM Safety (BIM-based Safety management and Communication System). As an intermediate result of the research project, it is presented how fourdimensional site layout and safety related planning activities can be carried out by using the currently available BIM software. Besides of the tools and procedures, findings concerning potential safety related use-cases to be tested in the pilot projects will be presented, as well as expected challenges and benefits of utilization of 4D-BIM. BIM technology can be used as a starting point for safety planning and communication. The utilization of 4D-BIM technology can result in improved occupational safety by connecting the safety issues more closely to the construction planning, providing more illustrative site layout and safety plans, providing methods for managing and visualizing up-to date plans and site status information, as well as by supporting safety communication in various situations, such as informing site staff about coming safety arrangements or warning about risks. The main objective of the BIM Safety research project is to develop procedures and use of BIM technology for safety planning, management, and communications, as part of the 4D-construction planning. Piloting BIM-based procedures in real on-going building projects is an essential development method that will be used in the research project. The project started at April 2009 and will be going on till April 2011.
