Track 14: Building Information modelling, sensor and wearable technology for construction and asset management

Track Chairs:

Dr Andrew Ross, Liverpool John Moores University


Building Information modelling, sensor and wearable technology have the potential to radically change the approach taken to the construction and operation of built environment assets. Information embedded within construction components, locations and built assets can be communicated visually and aurally to operatives and users of buildings and can consequently influence the receiver’s behaviour. This Theme will provide an opportunity for professionals and researchers to learn, share and exchange about the latest development and research in information management in cosntruction and the Built Environment. The theme will have a specific focus on utilizing advanced technologies in improving the performance of the industry in cosntructing and managing built environment assets.


Topics of particular interest include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Building Information modelling
  • Embedded technology
  • Sensors – dynamic and static information
  • Wearable technology for health and safety
  • Immersible technology for simulation of the built environment asset
  • Virtual reality
  • Supply chain information communication
  • Facilities management and wearable technology
  • Built environment and asset management
  • Case studies and applications of sensor technology applied to construction
  • Case studies of BIM and communication
