Event Title

Use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) for Heritage Buildings in Kosovo

Session

Civil Engineering, Infrastructure and Environment

Description

Building Information Modeling (BIM) had a huge impact in the construction industry, which has lead to significant improvement in the design, construction, maintenance and management of buildings. While the BIM technology has been successfully used for years in the new construction, BIM for heritage buildings is a relatively new field of academic research and professional practice compared to the traditional way of documenting heritage buildings.

The aim of this research is to identify the potentials and challenges in using BIM for heritage buildings in Kosovo. How can BIM be applied to building heritage conservation and revitalization? What are the benefits and advantages? This study attempts to promote the use of BIM for built heritage, so to be better understood the unique character of the heritage buildings in Kosovo, to be developed more comprehensive conservation and revitalization strategies, which will lead to more sustainable projects, so the heritage buildings can be better preserved for future generations.

Keywords:
