A Question of BIM.

See if you have the answers to some or all of these?

Which systems / software your organisation uses:

  • IT Systems/software Design
  • Estimating
  • Purchasing/Procurement
  • Project Management
  • Financial
  • Document Management
  • Other
  1. What system does your organisation use for written / qualitative submissions, and what can you offer to support our submission to a Client?
  2. Do you have a plan that outlines your company BIM strategy? (When was it introduced, what does it address)
  3. Have you utilised Building Information Modelling within your organisation and if so provide details (Include number & type of completed BIM projects)
  4.  Are there regional variations in BIM capability across your company? (Which offices have most experience, trained staff etc)
  5. Can you clarify which discipline for each location so that we are clear on your level of expertise
  6. What B.I.M. technologies do you employ?
  7. Do you have a B.I.M. manager or champion and/or BIM Leadership Group within your organisation?
  8. If ‘Yes’ please provide details (Hierarchy of leadership group, frequency of meetings & objectives of group)
  9. Do you have a BIM training program? (Number of trained staff & level achieved, i.e. beginner, Intermediate, Expert)
  10. What investment in technology has been made to ensure BIM success? (Upgrades to computers, software, network, servers etc)
  11. Summarise personnel available to support BIM? (Number of BIM support personnel, specialists etc)
  12. Has your organisation ever utilised product extranet/collaboration systems? If ‘Yes’ please provide details
  13.  How does your organisation manage and share best practice information?

Now where did these questions come from? Can you guess? These were asked by a contractor to the rest of the team on a partnering pitch.

  1. Now these questions are very familiar indeed after spending quite alot of time answering them all recently. I actually thought that they were a great set of questions designed to weed out the BIMwash which i gladly welcome. They also help prompt some key questions internally which also assists in breaking the mindset that BIM just something you bolt onto existing systems and workflow. Is there a prize for the first correct guess as to where these came from? 😉
