BIM Process

Process - existing business processes are mapped and re-engineered to suit a BIM-centric workflow. Typically, we prescribe the global standard methodology of buildingSMART. This utilises and informs the Information Delivery Cycle and is consistent with PAS 1192.

PAS 1192-2:2013 'Specification for Information Management for the Capital/Delivery Phase of Construction Projects using Building Information Modelling'. It specifies the requirements for achieving BIM Level 2. It builds on the existing code of practice for the collaborative production of architectural, engineering and construction information, defined by BS 1192:2007

PAS 1192-2 focuses on project delivery. Its application begins with the statement of need and works through the stages of the Information Delivery Cycle, culminating in an as-constructed Asset Information Model (AIM). The approach taken is described as “beginning with the end in mind”, identifying the downstream uses of information at the outset, to ensure its re-use during the whole building life cycle. Throughout this process it advocates the adoption of collaborative practices and of lean construction techniques.

Whilst PAS 1192-2 focuses on project delivery, PAS 1192-3 is concerned with the operational phase, specifying how an Assets Information Model (AIM) should be created and maintained through the life of the asset up to final disposal. It applies to direct capital works, existing assets and acquired assets and to both building and infrastructure assets.
