New standard for BIM to help meet 2016 Government savings target
Building Information Modelling (BIM) technology is considered invaluable to the delivery of a construction project since it provides a common single and coordinated source of structured information throughout the lifecycle of a project.
The Government has mandated that all construction companies tendering for Government work should achieve level 2 BIM* by 2016.
Adopting a consistent and best practice approach using BIM techniques is key as a means of achieving savings. Therefore BSIs new standard PAS 1192-2. Specification for information management for the capital/delivery phase of construction projects using building information modelling, has been launched to support the Governments Construction Strategy which aims to reduce the construction cost of public sector assets by 20-30%.
Sponsored by the Construction Industry Council (CIC) . It is the first of two documents which will provide clear guidance about best practice implementation of BIM to organizations and individuals responsible for the procurement, design, construction, delivery, operation and maintenance of buildings.
