  • Abstract:

    Recent catastrophic events that destroyed valuable monuments, like Isis attacks on ancient cities in Syria and Iraq in addition to Notre Dame’s fire in France, did not only cause a significant cultural loss but an immense economical damage as well. Moreover, the rapid growth of urban development projects across the globe further raises questions about damaged heritage management. As a result, a need appears for a sophisticated framework that can facilitate both accurate virtual reconstruction of lost structures and support their cultural management to achieve cultural healing. Using Heritage Building Information Modelling (HBIM) could provide enriched platforms that store and exchange knowledge crucial to reconstruct and operate damaged structures. Yet, there is little research about adoption and implementation of HBIM in lost or damaged heritage. Thus, this study aims to investigate adoption of HBIM and different implementation approaches in reconstruction projects. A phenomenological research approach together with literature review and careful examination of five case studies, with various building morphology and HBIM implementation, was adopted. Thematic data analysis was used where the study specifically looked at how cases described rather than explained effectiveness and potentials of HBIM in creating supplemented digital data, exchanges knowledge of heritage sites. Initial findings show that HBIM has potentials to enhance virtual reconstruction and restoration of heritage monuments; but its implementation indicate gross lack of procedure and workflow concerning transition from data collection to modelling. The research also highlighted key issues confronting adoption of HBIM’s in reconstruction and restoration of historic buildings.
