Over the last number of years, BIM has provided a much needed breakthrough in the Architectural, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry, but there remains concern and uncertainty with certain areas. With the influx of new technology, 4D BIM was recently introduced. The advantages of 4D BIM portray it as the solution to the problems associated with traditional planning. This video was created as part of a minor thesis dissertation by James Geoghegan as part of his BE in Civil Engineering. The main aim of this study was to examine the area of BIM and its practicality for project planners. It examined 4D BIM and determined if there are any other BIM tools that can benefit the planning process. The project ultimately aimed to take the “fear of the unknown” out of using BIM for project planners. This video is from a case study that was used to examine the software, information transfer, duration and complexity of carrying out these processes. The area of Project Visualisation, 4D and 5D BIM were identified as possible planning tools and assessed using the case study. All areas proved to have significant advantages for the planning of a construction project. Navisworks Manage was determined as the most effective software package to carry out these in terms of file transfer, duration, complexity, and quality of results. It was discovered that some work is needed to improve Navisworks in the area of 5D BIM. It was also found that a common open standard needs to be in place to improve file transfer.
