Special I
ssue Rationale and Focal Topics
:


Cloud computing technol
ogy
has rapidly emerged as a
new
paradigm
to address

resource sharing
based on different requirements in
nowadays
.

In the AEC
arenas
, t
his emerging technology
facilitates the development of a collaborative and integrated environment for the project
stakeho
lders. This undoubtedly will
impose
profound
and
worldwide

effect
s

on the

AEC
industry
.
Building Information Modelling (BIM) has been attracting more attentions from AEC
researchers as it is envisaged to provide solutions for multi
-
disciplinary issues in o
ur industry.
One of major critical technological components in BIM concerns the real time processing of
mega data and the context
-
aware interaction with BIM data from large volume of end users.
With this in mind, this special issue aims to attract high qu
ality research papers to explore
the
recent state
-
of
-
the
-
art developments in theory and applications of
cloud computing
-
based BIM

technology
in AEC
. Selected topics within the scope of the special issue include conceptual and
theoretical frameworks
, techno
logical innovation

and empirical research.
Topics

include, but are
not limited to:
