Integrating Digital Technologies in Support of Historic Building Information Modelling
ISSN 2634-7709
Whilst BIM is still in its formative state for the UK’s new-build sector, an interesting range of digital technologies are beginning to emerge that could result in distinct benefits for practitioners thinking about adopting a Historic Building Information Modelling (HBIM) approach for work on the existing building stock.

COTAC, London 2014: Reformatted Report July 2020

The development of this Report was founded on various presentations offered at the COTAC Conferences “Improving Thermal Performance in Traditional Buildings”, “Past Caring? BIM and the Refurbishment of Older Buildings” and “A Digital Future for Traditional Buildings: Practical Applications for Survey and Management” held in 2011, 2012 and 2013. Whilst focussing on describing 3D reality capture techniques informed by the 2013 event, it aims to start scoping the relevance of these to the essence of BIM, information management, and how that needs to be considered in the context of the traditionally constructed built environment.
