End of year chat with the BIM Task Group

If you follow me on twitter then you will know that I raised a question regarding the methods for which compliance with the Governments 2016 Level 2 requirements will be assessed. This led to a skype call and these are my notes:

A degree of pragmatism will be utilised –

The needs of the EIR will be the main focus, evaluated still with Technical advisors who will be educated. 3 areas of focus :

Most come under guidance and tools.

Level 1 Bs7000, BS 1192
2 ways, Pre contract BEP assessment. Extracts from process documents that demonstrate the embedded principals.

Pas 91 , BIM questions are optional
Shortlisting, on pre contract BEP, test against an EIR in the marketplace.

Pas 91 – organisation and precontract
Then shortlisted – tested for pre contract BEP at project level.

No checklist planned but guidance on how to complete. Although EIRs mapped to BEP response could be used in this way.

Level 2 – process and PAS1192
Information management consistent with Information exchanges
do you have a bep?
do you have an eir?
do you have a means of capability assessment for self and supply chain?
do you follow a plan of work.


then 1192 part 3:
Aimed at client

BS1192 part 4 – info exchanges
generic for transportation and validation of data.
Defining responsibilities

not out yet: 1192 part 5
Information security policy

Supporting Tools
CIC Protocol
Splitting up LOD and LOI within the CIC protocol for the MIDP

Level of Definition = Level of Detail (Geometric) + Level of Information (Data)

Soft Landings, – BSI for briefing and POE
BISrea framework

Do you set objectives for measuring.
procedures for POE. All levels of technical
Do you have regular reviews with the operational team during the project lifecycle.
DPoW – helps automate production of MIDP, definition and validation process.
Aligned with the learning outcomes framework. (end of January 2015)
Does your company have a BIM policy signed by Board Director.

    Surely compliance is measured by delivering an asset that performs as designed, on time and on budget; along with all the information needed to operate and maintain it?
