CDBB were pleased to support the Institution of Civil Engineers – Scotland at their “BIM and Soft Landings for better outcomes” masterclass held at Stirling University.

The Centre’s David Philp led a facilitated workshop along with Roy Evans of the Government Property Agency. After a series of presentations, a workflow was prepared illustrating the BIM Level 2 and Soft Landings tasks, the interface and mutualism between both and how they can be practically implemented.

Key Points:

  • Need for clear operational vision
  • Learn lessons from previous projects
  • Actively engage with the End Users to ensure their needs are input into all stages of the project
  • Clear and measurable operational targets set and stage plain language questions determined
  • Comprehensive information requirements aligned with AIM
  • Regular reality views from an operational perspective set using BIM and immersive technologies
  • Importance of operational excellence and preparing for the AIM
  • Data transfer from Capex to Opex tested early
  • Strategy for curation of the AIM
  • Having an extended aftercare strategy
  • Structured post occupancy evaluation
  • Feedback of lessons learned
