Utilizing BIM In A Design-Build Competition ProgramThis paper reviews the participation of university students from the Pittsburg State UniversitySchool of Construction towards delivering creative solutions to solving the housing problem forpeople displaced by various natural and man-made disasters through the Disaster Shelter DesignCompetition as hosted by John Brown University and sponsored by World Vision andSamaritan’s Purse. Construction management, engineering and architecture student teams areinvited to design and construct a rapidly deployable transitional disaster shelter for use by aidorganizations in response to disasters. The top ten teams are selected from the submitted entriesand permitted to construct prototype shelters for testing and presentation at John BrownUniversity. The study presents the participation of students involved though traditional phases ofdesign and construction along with the development of business case studies for massproduction. The application and utilization of various BIM design, analysis and constructionsoftware packages are reviewed in their use throughout the project. The paper also reviews thecurriculum for which the project was integrated and how concepts from the shelter are used incurriculum lessons learned and suggestions for future competitions are given.
