Panel: BIM Specification & Supply Chain
1:00 PM – 1:45 PM

Bim is not unique or limited to the design phase. The NBS toolkit for all. 3 or 4 years ago people would not have “got” the need for the toolkit.
Who needs what, when and why?
“The house that BIMstore built.”
As a manufacturer using BIM to improve their internal processes. Aim to get their components in early.
“You can never have too much information” dependant on procurement and project type. Recurring type of project versus the one off.
“Less is more” focuses people on why a piece of information is important.
Two levels of components. One for manufacture and one for specification.
Having the data fields and actually filled in with the correct data.
Need for a simple tool for manufacturers to contribute their data without the complexity.
Structures are well on board, MEP are having to in order to meet the FM. Architects are not full engaged in a model centric process.
Procurement is a focus to achieve a soft landing for information delivery to construct.
In a circular economy a buildings value varies over its lifecycle.
Cobie has actually got us all talking about data. It’s a stepping stone.
Cobie the data schema versus cobie the spreadsheet.
