This paper presents a comprehensive methodology for evaluating and improving the anti-Coronavirus (COVID-19) measures in higher education establishments. The methodology combines the use of: (1) Building Information Modeling (BIM) for the integration and control in a 3D graphic environment the anti-COVID-19 safety measures; (2) a questionnaire to collect the students’ commitment to safety measures and their suggestions to improve these measures; (3) data analysis to explore the impact of the students’ profiles on their commitment to safety measures. The proposed methodology is applied at the engineering school Polytech’Lille in the North of France. Results show that the BIM model provides valuable services to the administration by integrating the safety measures in a 3D environment and checking the compatibility of these measures and their improvement. The use of the questionnaire allows the administration to collect students’ feedback about their commitment to safety measures and their suggestions to improve these measures. View Full-Text
