Driven by a strong passion for the management and monitoring of activities involving a multidisciplinary project, the aim of the thesis will be show what in recent years has been the landmark evolution brought by Industry 4.0, which inevitably had invested not only in the vast majority of the world market, but above all the entire construction chain. In particular, it allows to illustrate the advantages of the BIM methodology adopted for the management of a multidisciplinary project and applied to a historic building in Milan, highlighting the main peculiarities that have led to a gradual transition from traditional design. This is through the use of “CAD systems”, to a “BIM Oriented” design, far more suited to the modern society in which we live, increasingly oriented towards a digital vision of the world around us. Working in the field of “BIM Oriented” is a new, stimulating and positive way of approaching the project, offering different methods of collaboration among stakeholders for multidisciplinary and data interoperability. When it comes to Building Information Modeling, it is a process that involves the generation and management of digital representations of the physical and technical characteristics of the individual elements that make up the object of study. BIM’s innovation and success is best described in time control, cost, manufacturer details, sustainability, and maintenance information to the construction model. In addition, information can be monitored for the entire lifecycle of the building, which shows significant savings in plant management and ultimately reduces risks in planning, building and managing financial plans. Following an in-depth research into the real potential of the BIM, it was attempted to understand how and to what extent it has been applied within the international stage, defining the current legislative situation related to BIM in the world and in Europe. Finally regarding Italy, the thesis focuses on the introduction of UNI 11337 of 22 December 2016, approved and published at the end of January 2017, which defines the “LOD”, or “Level of Development” of a typical model. Finally, at the end of the dissertation, the work is presented for which I was involved in at “Arup Italia” and to which I am still responsible, as Assistant BIM Manager, for management and control of the Architectural BIM model regarding a Roastery Project in a historic building in Milan. It should be emphasized that Arup, one of the world’s leading providers of engineering and project management services, has allowed me to put into practice and gain experience. This is with the collaboration of many professional figures, shared by the common thought of providing “Total Architecture” services in Digital Design Development, with particular reference to Building Information Management, which is called the “BIM Maturity Measure Tool, an information management tool that allows you to measure the maturity and level of success of the BIM implementation. This management model has allowed in-depth analysis of the “BIM Master Model” in the development of the dissertation work and to calculate in real terms how all the quality standards for each discipline have been met. As well as validating rapidly and precisely the developments between the different disciplinary models, whether architectural, structural or MEP, with the possibility of comparing the collected statistics, using graphs that refer to highly accurate percentage calculations.
