1 The Need for Landscape Information Modelling in Landscape Architecture A. M. Ahmad. 1 and A. A. Aliyu. 2 [1] Researcher, [2] Research Engineer, School of Civil and Building Engineering, Loughborough University, Leicestershire, United Kingdom. June, 2012

2 Contents 1. Introduction and research objectives 2. Problem statement 3. Methodology 4. Conclusion

3 Introduction Key issues of this research Need for BIM Modelling tools Landscape Information Working with other BIM users Source: Landscape Institute UK (2010).

4 Research objectives 1. To explore the current BIM use in landscape architecture 2. To identify the need for BIM application in Landscape architecture and challenges in the UK

5 Research Methodology 1. Use of secondary data (Desktop study) Use of selected academic search engines. and 2. Use of Primary data: Interview with Landscape Institute UK..

6 Describing BIM The tools (technology) The model (product) The information (sharing) The process (collaboration) The life-cycle (BIM use from inception to completion)

7 Working with BIM Lonely BIM Collaborative BIM?????? Source: Korec group, 2012

8 What next?

9 Problem statement Hayek et al, (2011) quoted (Appleton et. al, 2002; Paar, 2006) that there is no universal landscape visualisation solution. In February, 2012; the Magazine of the American Society of Landscape Architects reported that: Vectorworks Landmark is the only major stand-alone program designed for landscape architects. Sources: Hayek, U.W., J. Melsom., N. Neuenschwander., C. Girot, & A. Grêt-Regamey, (2011): Interdisciplinary studio for teaching 3D landscape visualization: Lessons from the LVML. Magazine of the American Society of Landscape Architects (2012). Available at:

10 Landscape architecture tools Revit and ArchiCAD : Leading BIM soft wares, but they focus on the building, not the site. Vectorworks Landmark; Does not offer IFC import and export yet. AutoCAD: Requires an add-on program such as LandF/X or LandCADD, for proper integrated landscape tasks. Other BIM software are Bentley Architecture and AutoCAD Civil 3D.

13 So What?

14 This indicates: The major BIM software does not support information sharing Eastman, (2008, 2011); Succar, (2009); Aranda-Mena, (2007); Weygant, (2011) and Messner et al., (2010) Agrees that Interoperability is a major problem to BIM When BIM is mandated by 2016, it will affect BIM workflow partnering in the UK.

15 Interview with Landscape Institute UK Despite growth in membership of Landscape architects in the UK, BIM participation is still limited. Source: Inspiring Great Places; Landscape Institute Review (2010).

16 Interview with Landscape Institute Landscape Institute UK (2012) questions: Are Landscape architects growing in numbers? Do Landscape architects need to integrate BIM (workflow)? Can Landscape architects be affected by not using BIM tools? What are the most common BIM tools for landscape architecture?

17 Key findings from Landscape Institute Landscape architects have to implement by BIM 2016 Landscape architects have to integrate the BIM Workflow There is major concern in the landscape industry regarding BIM use, that lack of expertise in the use of Landscape information modelling could effectively remove landscape architects from the supply chain. Currently there are exploring methods of equipping their members. Common BIM tools: Autodesk Revit and Bentley Architecture

18 Need for BIM in Landscape architecture References Relevance of BIM to Landscape architecture Pietsch, (2009) States that Landscape models can be used to make simulation, explanation, experimentation and communication with BIM, it can also be used as a simple and digital information with landscape planning details landscape analysis, landscape assessment, impact assessment, landscape planning Bohms, (2008) BIM allows for partnering/collaboration, sustainability, efficiency and consumer orientation Kalkhan, (2011) Describe that landscape parameters can be understood through the use of complex model with thematic mapping approaches. Joseph, (2011) Weygant, (2011) Jackson, (2010) Hayek et al, (2011) Author Author Author Author Describe that with exception of the building, plants could also contain integral intelligence properties that will foster better construction and maintenance. States that BIM has created an opportunity for visualisation of exterior components by creation of accurate site based components objects, landscaping, planting and topography. BIM is taught in institutions. It is encouraging that BIM technology is designed to integrate information, by facilitating collaboration among student s disciplines in the construction industry such as planning, facility management, architecture, landscape architecture and engineering. States that there is no universal landscape visualisation solution. To enable landscape architects to use BIM. To collaborate with fellow BIM users in the AEC Industry when BIM is mandated by the UK Government in BIM can help in organising landscape data. BIM automation can reduce time frame to conduct landscape task(s).

24 What to do?

25 Conclusion Landscape Institute with its members of up to 5900 should promote: More collaboration through participation (BIM issues). More awareness through research and development. This research is part of an on-going research on developing a landscape design framework for the adoption of BIM. This research has developed a gap that further research can improve.
