Building information modeling/construction information management (BIM/CIM) has been widely adopted as the main technology in civil engineering and related fields. It has enabled remarkable innovations in the construction industry. However, despite its contribution in facilitating construction practices, the application of BIM for detailed design has mainly been dedicated to 3D visualization and clash detection in civil engineering projects; thus, it has not been fully exploited. Therefore, in this study, we developed an automated verification system for structural details to rationalize the creation of rebar shop drawings using BIM. We focused on lap splicing as a structural detail. In particular, we first designed the algorithm required for verification, and then developed a prototype. Further, we verified its effectiveness using a sample model.
