This subject addresses the importance of using BIM/Lean/IPD to optimise design quality to ensure it meets client brief standards. It also covers the management of quality during construction phase by early identification and design rectification of potential coordination clashes and the like, thereby ensuring delivery on two key Lean Construction principles - eliminating defects and eliminating waiting time on site during construction. The subject also addresses how BIM models and Lean construction approaches in a collaborative IPD approach can significantly enhance the ability to identify, and facilitate elimination/management of potential safety risks that might otherwise manifest during construction of the project.
The subject is taught in a highly interactive environment over two intensives, each of three days duration. The first intensive is dedicated to aspects of utilising BIM technology platforms to identify opportunities for design quality improvement and identification of potential construction and operation period safety concerns, and elimination of those concerns. The second intensive introduces students to using BIM/Lean/IPD principles to ensure project processes ensure minimisation of waste and optimum timeliness of making necessary change in relation to design adjustments and safety risk elimination.

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:
- Analyse BIM/Lean/IPD technology platforms to enhance design quality.
- Point out potential construction phase safety risks resulting from design approaches and initiate design adjustments to mitigate those risks.
- Distinguish between design content and quality requirements of various stakeholders via collaborative and integrated use of BIM/Lean/IPD project techniques and processes.
- Identify and estimate the risks of failure to ensure collaborative early identification and management of design content and quality standards, not only from a final design acceptance perspective, but also from the perspective of optimising safety aspects of all building operations.
|Computer-Aided Examination (Open)||Online examination, multiple attemps allowable.||50%||Final Examination Period||1, 2, 3, 4.|
|Presentation §||Team contribution and presentation||30%||Class stream dependent||2, 3, 4.|
|Presentation||Personal demonstration of knowledge||20%||Class stream dependent||2, 3, 4.|
- § Indicates group/teamwork-based assessment
- * 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 late penalty will be applied to all overdue assessment tasks unless an extension is granted by the subject coordinator. The standard penalty will be 10% of marks awarded to that assessment per day late with no assessment to be accepted seven days after the due date. Where a student is granted an extension, the penalty of 10% per day late starts from the new due date.
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.
