The AEC-industry has been lagging other types of production industries in terms of productivity development for the last 40 years. The reason for this has been described as to be a combination of the collaborative needs in performing construction projects combined with the fragmented nature of the AEC-industry. Building information modelling (BIM) has been presented as a way of addressing these issues and thereby improving productivity in construction projects. When compared to traditional 2D CAD systems, BIM is a more efficient way of handling information connected to the project or the building. Adoption of BIM enables changes in work processes that can streamline the performance in construction projects. Adoption of BIM is not only a change in technology; there is a need for substantial changes in work processes in order to make improvements to productivity. BIM is a tool to improve processes in order to reach certain goals, not a goal in own right. The research carried out for this thesis aims to study the applicability of the BIM methodology in Construction Management discipline. In particular, the present work is focused on the case study of Promenade, which is the part of undergoing construction project called Torre Region Piemonte. The work is divided into different phases: at first, the model of Promenade has been created in Revit 2019 in order to assess the potential and criticality of each element and their respective compatibility within the BIM tools used. In this context, creating a 4D and 5D model, that represents the BIM strength, implementing the alphanumeric information degree applicable to the model, and using it to have direct correspondence with the construction time schedule and a cost report, through the creation of a Gantt chart, implemented by the addition of labor and material resources. The results expected by the data implementation of the project, are to have a better management especially during the building site phase, for what concern costs and timing, detecting the project also during the construction phase, that allows a complete knowledge and the possibility to modify some aspects during construction, which aim is the improvement of the construction process.
