Prados del Sur is a 21-apartment low income housing project being developed in Quitumbe located south of Quito, Ecuador and sponsored by the public Ministry of Urban Development and Housing (MIDUVI). This project proposes a Building Information Modeling (BIM) approach to support the design and construction planning of this facility. A 3D model of the architectural design is further developed into a 5D model by incorporating the construction schedule and cost estimate of the building. The design of a beam component of the structural frame is also reviewed.
