Profile Summary

Dr Yusuf Arayici is a Reader in the School of the Built Environment (SOBE). He lectures in Computer Aided Design, Building Information Modelling and urban regeneration. He has played leading roles in research projects since 2001 to date, such as the DIVERCITY (Distributed Virtual Workspace for enhancing Communication and Collaboration) Project (2001-2003), which was a BIM development and implementation project, the INTELCITIES (Intelligent Sustainable Cities) Project (2003-2005) to develop a conceptual system of building data integration for environmental and context analysis and planning by integrating 3D laser scanner with GIS, virtual environment displays, 3D printers for rapid prototyping and nD modelling database to enhance the refurbishment process in regeneration, the VEPs (Virtual Environmental Planning System) with a particular focus on the IFC data modelling from the laser scanned data for interoperability (2005-2006), SUREGEN (Integrated Decision Support System for Sustainable Urban Regeneration) project (2007-2012). He, as a knowledge based supervisor, also successfully completed a KTP (2009-2011) about the BIM implementation and adoption for an architectural company in Liverpool. He was also the programme leader for the MSc in Regeneration and Urban Renewal during its run.

 

He is currently leading interoperability specification development in the Design4Energy Project (2013-2017), aiming to develop a BIM based integrated platform for energy efficient design and retrofit, particularly researching into the development of an IDM based interoperability specification development for collaborative BIM based design practice at level 2 and level 3 BIM use for the energy efficient building design and optimisation. He also plays a leading role for scenario development in the Multidisciplinary approach to plan smart specialisation strategies for local economic development (MAPS-LED) project (2015-2019)

He has graduated 8 PhDs and currently supervising 15 PhD students in the area of Geoinformatics and Building Informatics, published over 60 that includes journal and conference papers, articles and monographs, book chaprs, and also two books. these are titled as "Building Information Modelling" published in 2015 and “Requirements Engineering for Computer Integrated Environments In Construction”, providing technical guidance for BIM development and implementation, published in 2010.
