Stage 2: BIM in Practise

Stage 2: BIM in Practise

BIM is spearheading a revolution in construction to improve project delivery. The government has set challenging targets to reduce capital costs, delivery times and whole life costs of buildings and assets. As a result, clients are changing the way in which they procure projects using BIM, which in turn changes the way in which project teams need to respond and demonstrate their capabilities to meet their clients’ requirements. This includes interpreting and responding to Employer’s Information Requirements, assessing supply chain capability and developing BIM Execution Plans. It includes developing and delivering new processes to support information management and setting up and manging the Common Data Environment. It also includes understanding how Government Soft Landings supports collaborative working and the delivery of BIM outcomes.

A practical approach to BIM implementation

BIM in Practise is designed to provide delegates with the in-depth knowledge and skills to enable them to begin applying BIM to Level 2 requirements on projects. The BIM in Practise course provides an advanced understanding of the BIM Level 2 processes and procedures defined in PAS 1192-2:2013. This includes understanding Employer’s Information Requirements and the procurement process, setting up and managing a BIM Execution Plan, the Common Data Environment and the principles of collaborative working.

Your course of study

Delivered as a two-day programme, BIM in Practise is split into four main sessions covering the following these areas:

  • Day 1 Session 1 will introduce the key first steps in bidding for, planning and establishing a project incorporating BIM. We will provide a detailed overview of the Employer’s Information Requirements, the Information Delivery Cycle in PAS 1192-2 and the roles of the client and supply chain in a BIM project.
  • Day 1 Session 2 covers the mobilisation of a BIM project through the development and use of the BIM Execution Plan. We will work through the structure and purpose of the BIM Execution Plan, verifying the supply chain’s capability and the creation of the Master Information Delivery Plan.
  • Day 2 Session 3 builds on the initial work during Day 1 to put in place the project-level processes for information management and delivery, covering the role of the Information Manager and Task Team Information Managers. It supports delegates to understand the delivery of specific information requirements and COBie.
  • Day 2 Session 4 focuses on the creation and delivery of the Asset Information Model and Government Soft Landings. It incorporates approaches to collaborative working, communication and change management to support the implementation of BIM on projects and within your organisation.
