Demand for Building Information Modelling and Digital Project Delivery
Project Clients/Employer organizations for several years asked for BIM enabled projects from their supply chain and almost accepted partial or non-delivery. That is no longer the case. Today increasing numbers of public and private sector Clients are now demanding delivery, ensuring it is a contractual requirement and increased monitoring and auditing projects. In the latter half of 2020, it was evident that BIM and digital delivery had become mainstream and many Clients now wanted to drive the potential savings and efficiency gains through to asset management.
Clearer Client roles and responsibilities for BIM and Information Management
The publication of the ISO 19650 series of international standards for Information Management and BIM was a significant step change for industry. There was now a clear message that the success of any BIM enabled project, the culture, and level of collaboration was directly influenced and directed by the Client. Within the new standards, clearly defined considerations, recommendations, and actions required for a successful project were presented, including Client-side information management functions and responsibilities.
Project Asset Data becomes a reality
If BIM was simply moving from CAD to 3D modeling, the transition would have been relatively straightforward, but BIM and digital working is far more complex and the overarching requirement to deliver good quality asset data at the end of a project has taken the industry a while to develop the right tools, processes and understanding. The good news today is increasingly projects are being successfully delivered and the information requirements are being provided as expected. It takes good planning, instruction, and management but the opportunity to migrate asset data from projects to facilities management solutions is today an increasing reality.
