Abstract

Construction workers who are exposed to hot and humid environments are at high risk of heat
stress. Excessive exposure to such environments can result in occupational illnesses and injuries. Acquisition of
sensor data from such environments is essential to ensure improved Health and Safety (H&S) of workers.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) offers a new epitome to provide comprehensive solutions for H&S and
evacuation planning in buildings. Researchers around the globe have presented hybrid solutions for integrating
different sensing technologies with BIM such as Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags, Ultra High
Frequency (UHF) readers and sensors. A review and critical evaluation of literature on integrated solutions of
BIM with various sensing technologies is performed in order to present a hybrid solution based on BIM and
Wireless Sensors Network (WSN) along with a notification system for real-time environmental monitoring of
buildings. The application, entitled “Real-Time Environmental Monitoring, Visualization and Notification
System”, is expected to provide a new horizon for effective visualization, reliable data capturing and catering to
time sensitive emergency situations for construction H&S management. The paper will also outline scope of
future research in this domain.
