Abstract

Development and expansion in the cities have increased the demand for road construction projects in different regions of the world. The construction projects in the modern era require the utilization of latest technology. BIM and its collaboration with other technologies like GPS, UAV, AR/VR, and telematics have successfully proven their worth in provision of a solution to various construction industry problems. Innovations in BIM process by researchers are a remarkable asset for planning and visualization. Earthwork in road sector demands further research to achieve better planning, visualization and improvements in productivity using BIM process. The study in paper presents a user-friendly flexible earthwork BIM module framework for the road projects and explains the complete modeling process from point data collection to final design. This study also discusses a model partitioning technique which can be used for the division of earthwork BIM model for better visualization and implementation. This method is useful for the primary design information modeling of earthwork at each section and is easily useable for the multi-phase construction project.
