Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Architectural practice, although its first objective is providing a design value, is nevertheless a business branch. Creative work of architects needs formal managerial guidelines and principles in order to ensure financial profitability of the firm. One of the challenges of architectural management is carrying through innovative solutions. A prominent example of a recent innovation in architecture, engineering and construction industry (AEC) is Building Information Modelling (BIM). In Sweden BIM regulations supporting its further diffusion across the industry were first established in 2013. The research indicates managerial practices which are crucial for the successful implementation of BIM in Swedish architectural offices and consequently bring significant business benefits to its adopters.
