MCE | Learning and Teaching Page 2 of 4

through the application of the management, theory or practice of BIM. 4. Produce and present original work for academic review.

3.2 Coursework Overview

Throughout the Module there are discussions on aspects of contemporary practice around Building Information Modelling (BIM). In order to further equip you with topic specific knowledge and understanding around this, and construction project management practice itself, and to help you develop your intellectual skills and abilities in the subject, the following coursework task is set. The coursework requires the submission of an individual, reporting an analysis around the theory and practice of BIM in a given case study (i.e. Smith’s Dock Project). The ‘unit of analysis’ in this case study describes the challenges throughout the project delivery phase, and how it could be improved using BIM. Project Analysis: The assessment requires you to analyse the Smith’s Dock Project as a case study, which has been uniquely chosen for this academic year and will be presented and illustrated to you in the first seminar session of the module. Throughout this analysis, you need to identify key project challenges, evaluate BIM-enabled solutions to address the challenges, and present the solutions with sufficient details for implementation.

3.3 Coursework Tasks to be Completed by Students

You are required to write an individual report including the following:

A. For the Smith’s Dock site at North Shields in Newcastle, the project aims to develop a sustainable

housing scheme with consideration for inclusive living

B. Analyse the project and propose an appropriate Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) and

offsite construction methodology for the project. Your proposed method needs to be justified by

providing the advantages of the method for the project.

C. Identify 3 major challenges in the planning, design and construction phases of your project that

can be addressed by Building Information Modeling (BIM). The challenges must be specific to

Smith’s Dock site and the project option, and the MMC method that you selected.

D. Describe the potential consequences of not properly addressing the three challenges to the

project time, cost, quality, safety, sustainability, and/or productivity (you need to clearly explain how

each challenge could negatively impact one or more of these items).

E. For each challenge, develop a BIM-enabled solution and describe how BIM can address the

challenge, and improve project time, cost, quality, safety, sustainability, and/or productivity. The

solutions must be tailored to the Smith’s Dock project, and your selected project option. You can

exemplify the solution with some illustrations from the BIM model you develop for the Smith’s Dock

project.

The report shall include the following sections:

– Section 1. Executive Summary o This section provides a brief introduction about the project, the proposed MMC method,

the type of the challenges you identified, and a brief description of your solutions. o The maximum word count for this section is 500.

– Section 2. Proposed MMC Method

o This section describes what MMC and off-site construction methodology you propose for the Smith’s Dock project, and the reasons for proposing this method along with its advantages for this project (item B above)

3.4 Expected Size of Submission

▪ The maximum word count for your submission is 4,000 words or equivalent (excluding the cover page and list of references).

▪ This word count includes: – The main body of the supporting text document. – In-text citations [e.g. (Smith, 2011)]. – Direct quotations from primary or secondary source material. – Words within any tables, figures, and illustrations in the document (see below). – Footnotes (See below).

▪ This word count restriction does not include any words used for any typical front-, or back-end matter that the student wishes to supply including, e.g.:

– Front Cover – Title & Table of Contents page (see below). – Glossary – Reference list – Bibliography (if provided).

▪ Figures (diagrams, illustrations, photographs etc.) and tables are welcome but must be fully incorporated into the submission, integrated with the text, and thoroughly explained why they are exhibited. 200 words are counted for each figure/table used.

▪ 'Footnotes'/’Endnotes’ will be permitted, as they can offer sufficient value, providing, their use is minimal, sufficiently concise, and appropriate – they offer only 'clarifying' information, or add 'adjacent' value to the sentences already written. In other words, they are not to be used to 'hide' words that would otherwise normally be expected to be contained within the main body of the text, and their use will be considered in accordance with the University policy regarding word limits.

▪ Note that no appendices are permitted in this submission. ▪ The work must form a structured and coherent whole. ▪ On the cover page, identify the total number of words used (excluding the cover page and

references section) and the number of figures/tables used. ▪ The Northumbria University policy on word limits is available a

https://www.northumbria.ac.uk/about-us/university-services/academic-registry/quality-and- teaching-excellence/assessment/guidance-for-students/ You will see the policy explains the point at which examiners will stop reading your work if you exceed the maximum word limit.

▪ Students’ reports must be submitted as a single digital file in either pdf or Microsoft Word format using the TurnitinUK portal on the Blackboard course. The University has published guides to help you submit your work using Turnitin Assignment submission portals, which you can find under Assessment Submission, Grades & Feedback at https://www.northumbria.ac.uk/about- us/university-services/it-services/it-support-365/student-it-guides/

3.5 Referencing Style

You need to prepare the references of your report based on the Harvard referencing style using the Cite Them Right webpage. An online guide to Cite Them Right is available to Northumbria University students is available at https://www.citethemrightonline.com/

4 Referral

If the Progression and Awards Board (PAB) decides to give you a referral attempt of the module, the module leader may ask you to retake the examination at another time. The referral attempt opportunity will typically occur after the end-of-level Progression and Awards Board (PAB). If you pass the module following a referral attempt, you will be awarded the module pass mark for level 7 modules, i.e., 50%. If you become eligible to complete a referral attempt but are subsequently unable to undertake the opportunity when required, you will be permitted to re-sit the module at the next scheduled sitting; this will generally entail the suspension of your progression on your programme of study until such time that you have completed the level and become eligible to proceed. The date and time of the examination for your referral attempt will usually be confirmed to you by Academic Registry via the University’s website and not by the module leader.
