Software agnostic. Select the right tool for the job. It is the data behind it that is important.
Question everything. Move forward and don’t get stopped/hung up
Learning as they go and filling in the gaps from the strategy document.

No EIR. No problem because the standards are already in place. Bs1192 has been out a long time but still unfamiliar to many. Don’t reinvent the wheel
Croatians business strategy will change to adopt BIM terminology.
Common data environment – projectwise
Databases are the new key tool.
Consistency of product.

Educated themselves be reading and understanding this document.
True meaning of the document is about consistent communication.
Getting the most out of software needs to be easier. CDE solution needs to work better with the BIM process. An understanding of the design and construction process.
Assets unknown. Client has databases but may be incomplete or unknown.
Asset data management model and cobie for all
Who adds data, who puts it in and where.
Integrated asset management system.
IAM-IS GIS system. Lots of yes and no’s on features.
Revit structure was used to complete the bridge design, rebar etc.
Costing is still being investigated.
Mobile data, experiment on a project by project basis to ensure access to key data on site.
