Specification for information management for the capital/delivery phase of construction projects using building information modelling
The production of co-ordinated design and construction information is a task- and time-based process,
independent of which procurement route or form of contract is used. Each task needs to be carried out in
a particular order for the mutual benefi t of all those involved, otherwise known as ”collaborative working”.
In a collaborative working environment, teams areasked to produce information using standardized
processes and agreed standards and methods, to ensure the same form and quality, enabling information to be
used and reused without change or interpretation. If an individual, offi ce or team changes the process without
agreement, it will hinder collaboration – a participant insisting on “my standard” is not acceptable in a
collaborative working environment.
