AbstractFour-dimensional models are three-dimensional graphical computer models that show various stages of completion of a project over time. This report focuses on the modeling of construction projects where the stages of completion correspond to a construction schedule. The report summarizes research work with Dillingham Construction Company showing the San Mateo County Health Center on the computer as it will be constructed from 1994-1999 and discusses the benefits of 3D and 4D computer models. The report also presents potential enhancements and improvements for 4D computing as it becomes an increasingly valuable tool in integrated design and integrated construction.
