Building information modeling 2018 automated code checking and compliance processes (2018, CRC Press)

The advancement of technology has continuously engaged the design profession over the past several centuries. From the ancient Egyptians—who used models in the form of drawings and physical objects, as demonstrated in the plans of the tomb of Rameses IV and the drawing of the shrine from Ghorâb 4000 years ago—to the use of the mouse in the early 1970s, to the development of building information modeling (BIM) in the mid-1990s, technology has had a radical impact on building design and construction.
