New International Standard for BIM
The British Standards Institute (BSI) has announced that there will be a new International Standard for BIM issued in November 2018
03 October 2018
The new Standard builds upon current UK standards for BIM and embraces the UK’s BIM Level 2 processes. Members using BIM on their projects should ensure they have an understanding of the new Standard.
Earlier in the year BSI and The Centre for Digital Built Britain (CDBB) stated the release of two international standards published for Building Information Modelling (BIM) BS EN ISO 19650–1 Organization of information about construction works – Information management using building information modelling – Part 1: Concepts and principles and BS EN ISO 19650-2 Organization of information about construction works – Information management using building information modelling – Part 2: Delivery phase of assets. These two standards will supersede BS 1192 (principles) and PAS 1192 part 2 (capital/delivery phase) respectively.
The CDBB has announced their BIM Level 2 Roundtable Discussion Series in association with the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB). This invitation only event is the Second Roundtable focusing on Construction and aims to address the question: ‘Does BIM Level 2 change the role of the Tier 1 Constructor?’. Questions to be considered include “what is the impact on a Constructor’s competitiveness, delivery, their internal skills sets and those of their supply chain, including their design consultants, suppliers and contractors, especially SME companies.”, and “What can Constructors do to deliver BIM Level 2 as business as usual and what do they need to help deliver this?”
ECA will be monitoring the progress of these Roundtable Discussions.
