Personal profile


Dr Saeed Banihashemi is the assistant professor of building and construction management department at the design and built environment school, 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 in 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) algorithms to optimise the energy consumption of buildings. This research dealt with the highly technical disciplines regarding BIM and its data analytics potentials, parametric design, AI-based decision making frameworks and informatics application in construction management.

Prior to joining UC, Saeed achieved extensive experiences in both academy and industry through teaching in the universities and working in the construction companies across Middle East, Malaysia, Singapore and Australia. 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 (IBS) with BIM and authored and co-authored more than 40 research articles and book chapters grounded on the areas of BIM, sustainable built environment, sustainable project management, parametric design and data analytics in construction industry.
