Designer or Constructor

As a designer or constructor you will be involved in the delivery of the brief, concept, definition and design stages of the project.

You will be primarily concerned and tasked with answering to a brief provided by the client, BIM level 2 enables designers and contractors to work collaboratively to produce the best possible designs and to test them in the computer before they are built. The Level 2 processes help support an integrated approach for design and co-ordination of complex components and systems cutting out waste and reducing the risk of errors. Accurate and more complete data may improve quality of bids, reducing risk allowances in target prices and lump sum bids. The data rich 3D models input into the assessment of the impact changes at all stages in a project lifecycle.

Listed below are the standards that will assist a Designer or Constructor to work at BIM Level 2 throughout the project life-cycle.
