NewsFirst international BIM standards to be published this year
The first two international standards for BIM are set to be published later this year, BSI has revealed.
The move marks the transition from the PAS 1192 series of standards to international standards.
BS EN ISO 19650–1 Organization of information about construction works – Information management using building information modelling – Part 1: Concepts and principles, and BS EN ISO 19650-2 Organization of information about construction works – Information management using building information modelling – Part 2: Delivery phase of assets, will supersede BS 1192 (principles) and PAS 1192 part 2 (capital/delivery phase) respectively.
Then, in early 2020, two further international BIM standards are scheduled to be published.
BS EN ISO 19650-3 Organization of information about construction works – Information management using building information modelling – Part 3: Operational phase of assets; and BS EN ISO 19650-5 Organization of information about construction works – Information management using building information modelling – Part 5: Specification for security-minded building information modelling, digital built environments and smart asset management.
These will replace PAS 1192 part 3 (operational phase) and ...READ MORE
PeopleRound table: Getting the right data at the right time
As we digitise the information process, receiving the right data at the right time should, in theory, be happening. But is that the case? The annual BIM+ round table of experts discuss the issue with Denise Chevin.
Getting the right data at the right time is critical to the success of construction’s digital transformation agenda. Collaborating with shared models that can then be used meaningfully for maintenance and asset management will only deliver much-needed efficiencies to the industry if we nail this challenge.
As the data used to create models is increasingly exported into VR and AR headsets, or micro devices, the challenge becomes ever more prescient.
It was in the context of this need that experts from across ...READ MORE
ManagementContinuing Professional Development: A Guide to Level 2 BIM
Autodesk’s John Adams offers an overview of BIM Level 2 BIM and what needs to be in place to achieve it.
In May 2011, the UK Cabinet Office announced a long-term government construction strategy aimed at improving the efficiency, cost-effectiveness and sustainability of UK government construction projects.
The strategy’s short-term goal is to reduce construction costs by 15 to 20%, and it is part of a broader set of goals for the industry, which are to reduce construction costs, project delivery time and long-term operating costs, and to help the UK meet carbon reduction targets for buildings.
