Indoor air quality affects human comfort in several aspects such as temperature, humidity, CO2 and CO. With BIM and sensor technologies, the real-time indoor air quality data can be collected by sensors, transmitted and displayed in the BIM model, therefore the building control system can make appropriate adjustments to improve the indoor air quality. For BIM models, the model-based approach increases efficiency within individual organizations and truly shines during coordinated project delivery. Building information modeling can drive time and budget savings for building and infrastructure projects. For sensors, the data gathered is converted to a digital form and is processed at high speed. Sensor technology can store the data in memory, from where it can be retrieved later for processing, analysis and presentation.

In this research, a plugin for grading the indoor air quality was designed, which can grade the indoor air quality at current or a specified past time as “good”, “fair” or “bad” showing in the BIM model. With the grading level, proper regulate and control could be made from the building control system to improve the indoor air quality. This designed plugin was used in a real case of seafront sport center in HKUST. Moreover, to efficiently manage sensors in a building, to reduce the energy consumption thus reduce the budget, linking facility and energy management to human comfort are also necessary and should be completed in the future work.
HKUST Incorporating Project Management Techniques in BIM Projects Report 06/2019 Ziwei YU

In order to manage a project seamlessly, there is a need to establish effective communication between different departments and identify the risks in the project, determine the affected or influencing stakeholders, provide timely resources and logistics, and manage the available resources to make a framework for project implementation. There are several standards and one of the most recognized standards is the Project Management Knowledge Facility (PMBOK). PMBOK is not just a guideline and a methodology for project management, but also can help projects for professional, targeted and comprehensive management. Building Information Modeling (BIM), a project management methodology has been adopted in recent years to design a project integrated as a 3-D information model, which adds all project information in the various phases of the project to a 3-D information model. For a correct BIM implementation in a project, BIM must be integrated into the overall management of the project and must have a BIM Execution Plan (BEP) adapted to the needs of the client and which in turn is integrated into the project management plan. To review BIM/BEP and project management comprehensively, this research consists of three main stages: (1) select of target database examining both academic and applied publications to analyses the situation between BIM/BEP and PMBOK; (2) conducts two surveys about “BIM/BEP with PMBOK” and “BIM project with Risk Management” to have deep understanding of the industry status; (3)select integration, stakeholder and risk management as specific aspects to analyze, and develop a preliminary framework of process guide for BEP.
