BSRIA BIM Roadmap
On 8 June 2015, --BSRIA launched a BIM Roadmap guide providing a method for an organisation to chart or map their corporate BIM strategy (which meets the Level 2 requirement by UK Government) via a number of clear stages or layers. This guide expands on the approach that is already in use by HM Government departments involved in the current 2016 BIM and Government Soft Landings (GSL) mandate by explaining the stages in detail and putting them into context.
The three distinct layers of the Roadmap are:
- Layer 1: Industry practices – the Roadmap 'datum'.
- Layer 2: Corporate/strategic practices – client processes.
- Layer 3: Project/particular/local practices – client roles and supply chain responses.
The guide initially focuses on BIM engagement via new build construction projects, but then moves on to look at the wider aspects of BIM used as a process or tool for managing live asset portfolios, where individual construction projects are simply parts.
It is aimed at those who are responsible for developing a BIM strategy within a building owner organisation. It can also serve as a useful guide to BIM for all those involved with BIM projects and for those who may be taking over assets provided using BIM processes.
This guide will put all the concepts and documents such as PAS 1192-2 into a common framework to help demonstrate relationships – where they are and how they relate to each other and to wider industry practice.
