4D CAD Research

4D Research Projects

At the Center for Integrated Facility for Engineering, Professor Martin Fischer has lead research projects related to 4D CAD since 1994. The first project, sponsored by Dillingham Construction and performed by Eric Collier, involved the development of a 4D model to communicate the four-year construction project of the San Mateo County Health Facility. Due to the success of this project, Martin Fischer continued to pursue research related to 4D models, focusing on improving 4D tools and the value of 4D models in design and construction. Below is a list of research projects performed by graduate students under Martin Fischer's guidance and with support from the CIFE community and industry companies. The links lead to a more detailed description of these projects.
