Utilizing BIM for Sustainable Architecture

An analysis and continuation of my graduate thesis at the University of Texas at Austin.

Chapter 6: Recommendations

The following tables list each typical stakeholder group involved with affordable/sustainable housing development.  Recommendations are provided which outline how each stakeholder interaction can leverage the power of BIM towards reducing costs, increasing efficiency, improving sustainable design, and developing better information workflows.  Various incentive strategies are also included as a means to offset the challenges associated with implementing BIM as a technology and process.  There are some areas of overlap between stakeholder roles and opportunities, since it is not anticipated that a single approach will work in every situation, nor is it expected that each stakeholder will be willing or able to engage BIM in the suggested fashion.
