Information-representation methods and tools or the Smart Swap Building strategic project

Marco Medici, Marcello Balzani, Federica Maietti


 Within the Smart Swap Building project for the housing renewal, the representative tool is an integrated part of the building design process and becomes an element to support complex decision-making processes, integrating different skills in different stages of the building life cycle. The use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) tools not only allow a transparent design phase but covers the whole building process, relating technological and structural elements with construction scheduling (4D), cost estimation (5D), certification (6D) and management of the life cycle (7D + CAFM), allowing more sustainable and aware choices.
