ABSTRACT: There are many technologies worldwide that are changing the construction industry. BIM is among the most important of these. The possibilities of combining BIM with several other methodologies and technologies are increasing by the day. In the Chapter II of this thesis, includes a research of several scientific papers and books that have information about how some projects have been using BIM in combination with other software’s and/or methodologies and gives a general overview of the benefits that these combined efforts have brought. In Chapter III, there are 2 case studies of projects that have used some of these technologies combined in order to improve the efficiency of specific goals such as time, cost and quality. In Chapter IV, the FlexQuartier project is introduced and discussed. In this project, a combination of several technologies is explained. This combination of technologies is something that has not been done before. The main goal of the FlexQuartier project is to create a BIM model which builds upon itself from conception to facility management. This model will be the central tool used by all the stakeholders in the project. From architects and designers, to contractors and subcontractors and at the end, owners, end users and facility managers.
