CIOB project managers' guide updated for BIM era

0 Comments

The CIOB has published a new BIM-enabled edition of its best-selling Code of Practice for Project Management for Construction and Development, the fifth since it was originally published in 1992.

The new version offers guidelines on integrating BIM at each stage of a project, more emphasis on the early pre-construction stages and further guidance on sustainability issues.

For the first time, the Code of Practice is also now available as a downloadable e-book.

The new updated version was written by a working group of practising project managers representing the CIOB and other institutions, including the RICS, ICE, APM and RIBA. In addition, drafts were circulated for comment to a wider review group of project management professionals.

David Woolven MCIOB, chair of the working group, said: “The new version has been subject to extensive revision and updating. It’s an authoritative guide to the practice of project management in construction – there’s nothing else like it. We know it’s extensively used in education as well as by those involved in the industry and clients looking to run projects.”

The new edition has been thoroughly restructured and updated with examples drawn from real-life – although anonymised – projects to give it a contemporary feel.

The document goes through each stage of the construction process, and at each stage it addresses BIM. There are guidelines on what people need to do in relation to BIM.– David Woolven MCIOB, chair of the working group
