The stakeholders include not only the organisations and individuals who occupy the building, but also those who have provided it, those who manage it and those who live with it – the community in general. The design not only has to be buildable (in terms of cost and time), but stakeholders are increasingly enquiring about its maintainability, sustainability, accessibility, crime deterrent features and its acoustic and energy performance. Often, a whole host of construction specialists are involved in instigating these aspects of design, such as accessibility auditors, FM specialists and acoustic consultants.

2005). , 2005). The process illustrates the flow of information and data within a typical design process of a multi-storey steel-framed building. The work starts with the development of the building concept. This involves the architect and the client. The architect prepares the client brief and specifies the total space requirements that conform to relevant standards and spaces as per expected occupancy. The circulation areas, number and size of cores are detailed by the architect. Conceptual floor layout drawings are prepared and the design is then delivered to the structural designer.

Commercial packages are also now available, such as 4D Simulation from VirtualSTEP, Schedule Simulator from Bentley and 4D CAD System from JGC Corporation. nD modelling develops the concept of 4D modelling and aims to integrate an nth number of design dimensions into a holistic model which would enable users to portray and visually project the building design over its complete lifecycle. nD modelling is based upon the BIM, a concept first introduced in the 1970s and the basis of considerable research in construction IT ever since.
