As a client or advisor you will be an individual or organization commissioning a built asset.
You will be primarily concerned with the procurement of services and the final asset. BIM Level 2 enables:
- Increased stakeholder understanding of the assets that are being commissioned
- Definition and attainment of appropriate levels of data to support
- Improve the decision making process and quality of project outcomes
At handover it provides a single source of as-built information and data to enable an efficient operational and maintenance strategy. The standards also enhance data security through better information management. The BIM Level 2 process can ultimately help reduce cost, project duration, risk, and improve value especially from a carbon perspective.
Listed below are the standards that will assist a Client or Advisor to work at BIM Level 2 throughout the project life-cycle.
PAS 1192-2 Specification for information management for the capital/delivery phase of construction projects using Building Information Modelling
PAS 1192-2 focuses specifically on project delivery, where the majority of graphical data, non-graphical data and documents, known collectively as the project information model (PIM), are accumulated from design and construction activities.
PAS 1192-2 provides an overview for:
- Establishing Stage Plain Language Questions (PLQs)
- Common Data Environment (CDE) Strategy
Template to assist with:
- Establishing Employers Information Requirements (EIRs)
Specification for information management for the operational phase of assets using Building Information Modelling
PAS 1192-3 provides guidance to Asset Managers on how to integrate the management of information across the longer term activity of asset management with the shorter term activity of asset construction for a portfolio of assets.
PAS 1192-3 provides an overview for:
- Establishing Organization Information Requirements (OIR)
- Establishing Asset Information Requirements (AIR)
Collaborative production of information Part 4: Fulfilling employers information exchange requirements using COBie
BS 1192 4 outlines the UK usage of COBie, an internationally agreed information exchange schema for exchanging facility information between the employer and the supply chain.
BS 1192-4 provides an overview for:
- Confirming the purpose of exchange facility information
- Reviewing the Information Transfer
Briefing for design and construction – Code of practice for facilities management
BS 8536-1:2015 gives recommendations for briefing for design and construction, to ensure that designers consider the expected performance of a building in use.
BS 8526-1 provides an overview for:
- Identifying business needs and performance targets
- Setting objectives and operational requirements
- Reviewing operation assets and plan commissioning
- Verifying commissioning and prepare for start up
Specification for security-minded building information modelling, digital built environment and smart asset management
PAS 1192-5 specifies requirements for security-minded management of BIM and digital built environments. It outlines the cyber-security vulnerabilities to hostile attack when using BIM and provides an assessment process to determine the levels of cyber-security for BIM collaboration which should be applied during all phases of the site and building lifecycle.
PAS 1192-5 provides an overview for:
- Establishing Built Asset Security Strategy (BASS)
- Creating Built Asset Security Management Plan (BASMP)
- Determining Built Asset Security Information Requirements
- Establishing Built Asset Risk Management
- Creating Security Breach/Incident Management Plan (SB/IMP)
