In this study, the frequently encountered issues related to reinforced concrete nodes (beam and girder protection layers, beam column protection layers, and binding wire collision, etc.) were sorted out and analyzed. Building Information Modeling (BIM) was employed to solve the problems resulted from the complex node issues. Moreover, new steel reinforcing bar family (*.rfa) were constructed using the shared parameters to edit formula, to assign parameters to steel reinforcing bar processing and construction, to export detail list, to facilitate steel reinforcing bar data-processing and construction in the later stage. Lastly, a steel reinforcing bar construction process was constructed based on the BIM application presented by this study, serving as reference for the steel reinforcing bar works.
