This subject addresses cost planning, estimating, lifecycle costing and cost management using BIM-related Lean Construction and Integrated Project Delivery techniques. It is taught in a highly interactive manner. It is dedicated to aspects of interrogating BIM IT platforms in a manner that informs students how to utilise available BIM information better, to prepare accurate project cost plans and estimates during the project phases defined by the buildingSMART Australasia BIM framework. The subject allows students the opportunity to prepare and refine project estimates/cost plans that align with the BIM framework phases, and with a focus on Lean approaches to construction. This subject has been designed as a micro-credentialed course for the benefit of industry professionals.

Assurance of learning
Assurance of Learning means that universities take responsibility for creating, monitoring and updating curriculum, teaching and assessment so that students graduate with the knowledge, skills and attributes they need for employability and/or further study.
At Bond University, we carefully develop subject and program outcomes to ensure that student learning in each subject contributes to the whole student experience. Students are encouraged to carefully read and consider subject and program outcomes as combined elements.
Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs)
Program Learning Outcomes provide a broad and measurable set of standards that incorporate a range of knowledge and skills that will be achieved on completion of the program. If you are undertaking this subject as part of a degree program, you should refer to the relevant degree program outcomes and graduate attributes as they relate to this subject.
Subject Learning Outcomes (SLOs)
On successful completion of this subject the learner will be able to:
- Explain the requirements in setting up a BIM model to ensure it informs accurate estimating and cost planning (e.g. correct coding for cost estimating and variation valuing exercises).
- Define the risk aspects to cost planning and estimating of failing to ensure collaborative contributions to BIM/Lean/IPD delivered projects, at all stages of the delivery process as defined in the buildingSMART Australasia BIM framework.
- Describe the importance of collaborative and integrated input to project estimating and cost planning by all members of the project delivery team.
- Recognise how BIM model knowledge is important in preparing and maintaining realistic and useful cost plans and estimates.
- Experience how estimating in the BIM/Lean/IPD project delivery environment can be far more accurate, informative, and rapidly delivered because of the 3D modelling and AR/VR aspects of design data presentation.
- Describe impacts of BIM informed project cost planning, estimating and life cycle costing in the BIM/Lean/IPD project delivery environment.

|*In-Class Quiz - Individual||Online examination, multiple choice based, multiple attempts allowable||60%||To Be Negotiated||1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.|
|Presentation||Contribution to group presentation||10%||Class stream dependent||2, 4, 6.|
|Presentation||Knowledge demonstrated in group presentation||10%||Class stream dependent||2, 4, 6.|
- * Assessment timing is indicative of the week that the assessment is due or begins (where conducted over multiple weeks), and is based on the standard University academic calendar
- C = Students must reach a level of competency to successfully complete this assessment.
|Pass||Usually awarded to students whose performance meets the requirements set for work provided for assessment.|
|Fail||Usually awarded to students whose performance is not considered to meet the minimum requirements set for particular tasks. The fail grade may be a result of insufficient preparation, of inattention to assignment guidelines or lack of academic ability. A frequent cause of failure is lack of attention to subject or assignment guidelines.|
For the purposes of quality assurance, Bond University conducts an evaluation process to measure and document student assessment as evidence of the extent to which program and subject learning outcomes are achieved. Some examples of student work will be retained for potential research and quality auditing purposes only. Any student work used will be treated confidentially and no student grades will be affected.
Students must check the [email protected] subject site for detailed assessment information and submission procedures.
Policy on late submission and extensions
A student who has not established a basis for an extension in compliance with University and Faculty policy either by 1) not applying before the assessment due date or 2) by having an application rejected due to failure to show a justifiable cause for an extension, will receive a penalty on assessment submitted after its due date. The penalty will be 10% of marks awarded to that assessment for every day late, with the first day counted after the required submission time has passed. No assessment will be accepted for consideration seven calendar days after the due date. Where a student has been granted an extension, the late penalty starts from the new due date and time set out in the extension.
Policy on plagiarism
The University’s Academic Integrity Policy defines plagiarism as the act of misrepresenting as one’s own original work: another’s ideas, interpretations, words, or creative works; and/or one’s own previous ideas, interpretations, words, or creative work without acknowledging that it was used previously (i.e., self-plagiarism). The University considers the act of plagiarising to be a breach of the Student Conduct Code and, therefore, subject to the Discipline Regulations which provide for a range of penalties including the reduction of marks or grades, fines and suspension from the University.
Feedback on assessment
Feedback on assessment will be provided to students within two weeks of the assessment submission due date, as per the Assessment Policy.
If you have a disability, illness, injury or health condition that impacts your capacity to complete studies, exams or assessment tasks, it is important you let us know your special requirements, early in the semester. Students will need to make an application for support and submit it with recent, comprehensive documentation at an appointment with a Disability Officer. Students with a disability are encouraged to contact the Disability Office at the earliest possible time, to meet staff and learn about the services available to meet your specific needs. Please note that late notification or failure to disclose your disability can be to your disadvantage as the University cannot guarantee support under such circumstances.
