The article deals with abandoned industrial buildings and lands conversion concept, objectives, problems, beneficial results of a successful conversion for urban expansion, as a complex process of sustainable development. The tools for making effective management and usage of abandoned buildings decisions are considered. The article analyzes the 5D BIM model throughout the life cycle of the building. The foreign good practice is analyzed, where the modern digital technology is used for reconstruction of old buildings. The building information model application possibilities are examined throughout the lifespan of a building. The measures for CO2 emission reduction in the construction sector are proposed. Finaly, the model for conversion of abanoded buildings is proposed, based on MCDM and BIM technologies.
