BIM capability criteria

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a very broad term that describes the process of creating and managing digital information about a built asset such as a building, bridge, highway or tunnel.

The Handbook for the introduction of Building Information Modelling by the European Public Sector published by the EU BIM Task Group in 2017 suggests that:

‘In the tender process before contract award, the contracting party evaluates the supplierscapabilities and capacity to the extent necessary for them to be considered appropriate to undertake work and deliver services for potential buyers. The assessment of BIM related capability and capacity in relation to BIM, industry standards and the contracting party’s information requirements includes the commitment and the experience of the contracted party as a whole and of the proposed team, access to and experience of the information technology specified or envisaged as well as the quantity of experienced and suitably equipped personnel within the contracted party with availability to work on the proposed project.’
