Blog: BIM Programme Update

last modified Sep 03, 2018 10:59 PM
This week the CDBB Home Nations Working Group [HNWG] meeting will be hosted in Northern Ireland, bringing together the four national BIM programmes with the purpose of developing consistency of messaging and promoting a shared understanding of the value proposition afforded by a co-ordinated approach to a digitised UK built environment. BIM Communications Manager David Philp updates on what to expect.

The group are currently working hard to advance a harmonised embedment of BIM Level 2 and more importantly the principles of better information management amalgamated with a mindful security approach. The focus of this current meeting is to ensure that the forthcoming transition to BS EN ISO standards 19650 is commonly appreciated and more importantly a consistent baseline approach developed as to how this should be adopted across the UK public sector.   Having a corresponding advance, clear definition of what the BIM Level 2 is for the home nations [i.e. required components within the context of the new wrapper] along with consistent communication to industry is key and the HNWG is conscious of its role in the transition to these latest and updated international standards.


The meeting will also look at best and shared practice around Organisation Information Requirements (OIRs) and practically how it juxtaposes with asset management activities and supports decision making.  Additionally, a session will be undertaken on successful implementation of PAS 1192-5:2015 A specification for security-minded building information modelling, digital built environments and smart asset management and a general update on other security matters.  Finally an update session on advanced manufacture will be undertaken by Jaimie Johnston of Bryden Wood author of “Platforms - Bridging the gap between construction + manufacturing” 

As always, sharing thoughts and lessons learned around BIM Level 2 implementation will be the golden thread of meeting.
