Professor of Construction Engineering and Management at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology; Visiting Professor, CDBB and Division of Civil Engineering, University of Cambridge.
Prof. Sacks’ research focuses on the synergies of Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Lean Construction. Recent work at the Seskin Virtual Construction Lab at the Technion, which he leads, has included development of BIM-enabled lean production control systems; semantic enrichment of BIM models using machine learning and rule-processing, with application to BIM interoperability, model acquisition from point-cloud data, and code-compliance checking; BIM systems for earthquake search, rescue and recovery; and design for safety. He is the lead author of the “BIM Handbook”, currently in its 3rd edition, and of a new book on Lean and BIM implementation in construction, “Building Lean, Building BIM: Changing Construction the Tidhar Way”. He has received numerous awards for research and teaching, including the Thomas Fitch Rowland prize of the American Society for Civil Engineering’s Construction Institute, in 2016. Prof. Sacks is the author or co-author of 78 papers in international peer-reviewed academic journals, 96 peer-reviewed conference papers, and numerous research reports.
