As an operator you will be an organization that uses an asset to create value but does not own the asset. You will also be an organization responsible for the day to day operation of an asset/facility.

You will be primarily responsible for on-going management and operation of the completed asset. BIM Level 2 provides operators with real-time information about available services and maintainers with accurate assessments of the condition of assets. This helps inform better decisions regarding operation and maintenance expenditure based on actual asset performance and status. The data exchanges of Level 2 facilitate the automation of a populated asset data set into CAFM systems, saving time and avoiding duplication. There is better information quality as a result of this automation enabling an increased amount of verification. The Level 2 processes encourage collaborative working including early engagement of Facilities Management and Operation allowing visualization and lifecycle solution testing at the preconstruction stage.

Listed below are the standards that will assist an Operator to work at BIM Level 2 throughout the project life-cycle.

BIM Level 2

PAS 1192-2:2013

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)
BIM Level 2

PAS 1192-3:2014

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)
  • Creating and Maintaining Asset Information Model (AIM)

BS 8536-1:2015

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 8536-1 provides an overview for:

  • Identifying business needs and performance targets
  • Setting objectives and operational requirements
  • Reviewing operational assets / Plan commissioning
  • Verifying commissioning and prepare for start-up

BIM Level 2

PAS 1192-5:2015

Specification for security-minded building information modelling, digital built environments 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 Strategy
  • Creating Security breach/Incident Management Plan (SB/IMP)
