Could anyone tell me good books to read about BIM in general?
Just wanting to have a read about BIM, how it’s best implemented, used etc. Could anyone recommend any good books, ebooks, whitepapers.
For general BIM knowledge I would recommend “BIM Handbook: A Guide to Building Information Modeling for Owners, Managers, Designers, Engineers and Contractors
Search for 'Mastering Revit Architecture 2013' - great reference material. And follow any publications, papers from Phil Read - the master of the universe of Revit!
For more the implementation side take a look at Building Information Modeling: A Strategic Implementation Guide for Engineers, Constructors and Real Estate Asset Managers.
I found that this book is really good at explaining BIM and most of the associated principles. Definitely reccomend it. BIM and Integrated Design by Randy Deutsch
If you want a design side implementation then you already have some good suggestions. Having read a couple of the suggestions BIM really came together for me with the AGC BIM courses, you could just buy the books if you want a Project (Owner, Designer, Contractor, and Installer) perspective on implementation.
