A practical guide to adopting BIM in construction projects by Prof. Bimal Kumar

By Prof. Bimal Kumar

A specified view of the main matters for adopting construction info modeling (BIM) in development tasks. It offers an outline of the center principles and concerns distilled from quite a few suggestions files and focuses totally on the extra advanced and significant themes of procedures, criteria and protocols that must be in position for the winning adoption of BIM. In so doing, it presents suggestions to permit the engineer or pupil to totally comprehend the results of the method and to facilitate the applying of the rules and strategies in genuine scenarios.

The writer offers a balanced procedure combining enough history concept and useful principles to make sure the publication is acceptable and correct to practising engineers and scholars alike. equally even if a lot of the subject emanates from the united kingdom, it's both acceptable in any state the place top perform is desired.

Example text

At the end of the construction phase, the completed PIM essentially becomes the AIM (Asset Information Model), which is handed over to the asset management and facilities management group. In the case of a refurbishment or enhancement project for an existing asset, the AIM which is already in place for the asset in question becomes the starting point when specifying the need for the project, and which is then followed by the same steps mentioned above for a new build project. 11 Summary This chapter has summarised the UK Government’s BIM strategy and provided brief introductions to the various elements of the strategy as well as the core elements of the guidance published by the BIM Task Group for implementing BIM into projects.

In Level 2 BIM, the ownership (and hence the liabilities) are not shared, thus keeping things much more manageable. From an implementation point of view, the major change being mandated is simply that all stakeholders move on to using BIM (rather than 2D/3D CAD) technologies and comply with information standards and protocols for exchange BIM at well-defined data drop points along Model 1 the life cycle of an asset from concept inception to demolition (and perhaps rebuild). The standards for information BIM BIM representation, storage and exchange Model 2 Model 4 will be agreed right at the beginning of a project and will be contractually binding on all stakeholders.

Later chapters will deal with processes, standards and protocols, which must be embedded in the procurement process facilitated by the BIM technologies presented in this chapter. 5 Data, information and knowledge As the core concept this book deals with is information, let us first consider the datainformation–knowledge continuum. So, how does one define information and what is the difference between data, information and knowledge? For centuries, philosophers have grappled with these terms. However, the discussion here will be limited to its relevance to the core topic being covered: BIM.
