A building owner's guide to implementing BIM

BSRIA release new roadmap to help organisations plan BIM strategy

Posted by Stephanie Broad | June 23, 2015 | Bricks & mortar

BSRIA’s new BIM Roadmap guide provides a method for an organisation to chart or map their corporate BIM strategy (which meets the Level 2 requirement by UK Government) via a number of clear stages or layers. This guide expands on the approach that is already in use by HM Government departments involved in the current 2016 BIM and GSL mandate by explaining the stages in detail and putting them into context.

The three distinct layers of the guide are as:

  • Layer 1: Industry practices – the Roadmap ‘datum’
  • Layer 2: Corporate/strategic practices – client processes
  • Layer 3: Project/particular/local practices – client roles and supply chain responses

The guide initially focuses on BIM engagement via new build construction projects, but also looks at the wider aspects of BIM used as a process or tool for managing live asset portfolios, where individual construction projects are simply parts.

It is aimed at those who are responsible for developing a BIM strategy within a building owner organisation. It can also serve as a useful guide for those involved with BIM projects and for those who may be taking over assets provided using BIM processes.

The guide puts all the concepts and documents such as PAS 1192-2 into a common framework to help demonstrate relationships – where they are and how they relate to each other and to wider industry practice.

Hard copies of The BIM Roadmap are available to order from BSRIA Bookshop at £40 to non-members or £20 to BSRIA Members. PDF versions are also priced at £40 to non-members and are free for BSRIA members.
