Building Information Collection Application (BICA)

Responsible Partner


The Building Information Collection Application (BICA) is a smartphone application enabling building residents to provide complementary information (such as notes and photos) to the already recorded building information in the BIM, thus accelerating the overall collection of data required for the initial renovation scenario modelling process.

Through BICA’s UI, residents’ can provide their input spontaneously on their home indoor/outdoor areas, or at the request of the building surveyors/engineers, in order to enrich the pre-designed as-is BIM model with energy related equipment, their characteristics, building’s weak points, and other related hidden components within the building (pipes, cables, etc.) that they might be aware. In addition, through BICA, residents and owners can view health and safety (H&S) instructions related to the ongoing renovation processes within the building issued by the H&S managers, while they can also create new H&S issues, when they spot a possible H&S issue/hazard in the on-building-site.
