With advent of Building Information Model (BIM) in architecture, engineering and construction three dimensional (3D) model has became an interface tool for accessing building’s information. BIM provides a framework to develop data rich product models and facilitates easy and fast access to the information stored in a database through the 3D model. Accessing the information using BIM is a two-step process. The first step includes the identification and selection of the appropriate 3D element from the digital model and second step includes the retrieval of the information. Currently, the first step is accomplished by navigating the model manually. This step becomes tedious depending upon the size and complexity of the model. This identification and selection process can be automated by integrating Quick Response (QR) code technology with BIM. This integration facilitate easy element selection and improves information retrieval from BIM. This paper discusses about the BIM and QR code framework which facilitates seamless information exchange between real world object and BIM.
