Australian Research Council (ARC)
Linkage Project

This project is funded partially by the Australian Government through the Australian Research Council.

SBEnrc’s research Project 3.27 Using Building Information Modelling (BIM) for Smarter and Safer Scaffolding Construction has been successful in leveraging into this ARC Linkage project.


January 2015 – December 2019

This project will innovatively integrate a decision support system, virtual design and construction, and onsite monitoring into one dynamic planning system to significantly improve construction site productivity. The emphasis is on producing optimal solutions for planning, design, erection, monitoring, dismantling and relocation of scaffolding, so that productivity is maximised subject to satisfying required cost and safety constraints.
