Digital Infrastructure Engineering and BIM

We investigate using digital technologies and processes to design, construct, and operate physical infrastructure such as buildings, bridges, and highways. Our research develops digital methods operating on technologies such as Lidar, photogrammetry, building information modelling (BIM), and geographic information systems (GIS) to create, simulate, analyse, and optimise designs. Our current projects include:

  • Developing BIM-based methods to optimise construction demolition (2019-2023)
  • Digital engineering in tertiary education (2020- 2024)
  • Developing approaches to use point cloud for structural analysis (2023)
  • Developing methods to use mobile laser scanning to identify defects on roads (2023)
  • Extending International BIM standards for various types of infrastructure systems (2023)
  • Using Digital engineering to verify recycled material (2023- 2026)
