Dr Saeed Banihashemi is the Assistant Professor of Building and Construction Management discipline in the School of Design and Built Environment, Faculty of Arts and Design; University of Canberra (UC). Saeed has got his bachelor degree in architecture and master of science in construction project management. He has obtained his PhD from the Built Environment school of University of Technology Sydney (UTS). As the PhD project, Saeed developed a novel approach in integrating Building Information Modelling (BIM) with Artificial Intelligence (AI) to optimise the informatics application in construction industry. Saeed is the member of Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM), Australian BIM Academic Forum (ABAF), Australian BIM Advisory Board (ABAB) and executive member of the ACT chapter of Australian Institute of Building (AIB).


Prior to joining UC, Saeed achieved extensive experience in both academy and industry through teaching in the universities and working in the construction companies across Middle East, Malaysia, Singapore and Australia. Saeed’s teaching is in the areas of digital design and construction and construction project management. Saeed has patented a new method in monitoring of construction project sites through data analytics application, published a book regarding the integration of Industrialised Building System with BIM and authored and co-authored more than 40 research articles and book chapters grounded on the areas of BIM, built environment and data analytics in construction industry. Saeed’s work has been cited 345 times in frontline journals, dissertations and conferences, mostly in knowledge areas relating to construction project development, digital design & construction and sustainable built environment.


Saeed has served in scientific committees of major international conferences and review boards of frontline journals. He has also examined PhD dissertations and chaired theses committees. Now, Saeed supervises 3 PhD and 1 bachelor with honours students towards completions in areas relating to BIM, building quality and sustainable design and construction. Furthermore, Saeed is the chief investigator of the projects; “Quality Failures and Defects in Delivery of Building Projects: A Framework for the Australian Construction Industry”, funded by Master Builders Association of ACT (MBA-ACT).
