SPR-4622: Integration of BIM for Bridge Modeling

This study includes the following: (1) The preliminary version of a 2D PDF to 3D IFC‐based building information modeling (BIM) conversion tool (PDF2BIM) that could generate the main bodies of a bridge in Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) format; (2) Refined version of the PDF2BIM tool that will be able to add selected physical information elements into the IFC‐based BIM instance model automatically; (3) A BIM maturity model roadmap for specifying the needed information elements and their needed maturity level in the converted IFC‐based bridge BIM, in the short term and in the long term; (4) A technology‐process guideline for integrating BIM into the design, construction, and asset management workflow based on the PDF2BIM tool and BIM maturity model roadmap.
