Building Information Modelling (BIM) is the process of generating and managing
building data during its life cycle. Typically, it uses threedimensional, real-time,
dynamic building modelling software to increase productivity in building design
and construction. The process produces the Building Information Model (also
abbreviated BIM), which encompasses building geometry, spatial relationships,
geographic information, and quantities and properties of building components.
This BIM Standard establishes a process for adopting BIM on building projects.
Clients, project managers, architects,engineers, quantity surveyors, contractors,
manufacturers and facility managers can produce a BIM Project Specification with
reference to this document.
The planning, specification and implementation of Building Information Modelling
will ensure that there is a substantial return on the investment in the BIM process
by all of the project participants.
This document is divided into 3 primary sections;
1. BIM Project Objectives – how to plan the BIM implementation
2. Building Information Model Specification – what will be modelled
3. Resource Planning – who will manage and maintain the BIM
