  • Overview• Whats BIM• Why BIM• BIM Technology• BIM Advantages• BIM Development• ty examples – Oldham BSF / Kearsley Academy / Housing Projects• BIM Future – iBIM/IPD• BIM- Implementation• Conclusions
  • ty Overview
  • What’s BIM?
  • BIM DefinitionsBS ISO 29481-1 2010 - Building information modelling - Information delivery manual“Shared digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of anybuilt object (including buildings, bridges, roads, etc.) which forms a reliable basisfor decisions” CPIC /RIBA – Proposed Definition “Building Information Modelling is digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a facility creating a shared knowledge resource for information about it forming a reliable basis for decisions during its life cycle, from earliest conception to demolition.”
  • What’s BIM?
  • What’s BIM? Owners Architects Builders & Civil Fabricators Engineers BIM MEP Systems Structural Engineers Engineers
  • BIM – A Change to Process”MacLeamy Curve” Patrick MacLeamy , CEO, HOK
  • Why BIM?Bim adoption more than doubles8 February 2012 “The number of construction professionals using bim (building information modelling) has jumped from 13% to 31%, according to the results of the NBS’s annual bim survey. Of the 1,000 respondents to the national survey, almost 19 out of 20 expected to be using bim within the next five years; 80% of those who had already adopted bim agreed that it increases the coordination of construction documents; while 65% said it delivered cost efficiencies.
  • Why BIM?• 2D communication in a 3D world• Traditional problems• Sustainable design and energy performance compliance• Building performance regulation• Waste within construction• Latham / Eagan Reports• Best practice
  • Government Construction Strategy• 20% reduction in costs targeted for UK construction procurement• BIM confirmed as an essential element in the reduction waste within construction.• BIM working party strategy published June 2011.• Begin phased roll out to all government projects from summer 2012• Introduction of Construction Operations Building Information Exchange (COBie 2.4)• All UK public funded construction projects will require fully collaborative 3D BIM (level2) as a minimum by 2016.
  • BIM Levels
  • BIM Technology – ArchitectureBIM technology is being developed by a range of major CAD vendorsbut is represented by three main staples for Architecture; Revit Suite NavisWorks Grahisoft Archicad Vecterworks All-Plan Microstation Bentley Architecture Many More BIM packages for Environmental and Structural analysis
  • BIM Technology - Consumer (3D-5D and beyond) Client / Contractor / QS / Asset Management? 2D – 2 Dimensions 3D – 3 Dimensions Structural 4D – Cost Models 5D – Time 6D - lifecycle 7,8,9!?! SHARED Architects MEP Models ModelsAEC (UK) BIM Standards For Revit – Shared Environment Principle Other brands available!
  • BIM Advantages - General Benefits• Enhanced Design• Greater Productivity• Improved Delivery
  • BIM Advantages – Designers• Conceptual design• Central Source of information• Multi-Discipline Integration• Early detection of conflict
  • BIM Advantages - Construction• Pre-construction assessment• Reduction in no. of RFIs• Fewer field coordination issues• Quantity/cost tracking improvements• Greater potential for off-site fabrication• Reduce Risk
  • BIM Advantages – FM• Asset management• Facility maintenance and operation• Life cycle of buildings• Single Source of Information Cobie http://www.wbdg.org• BIM virtual building and FM Software synchronisation• Health & Safety
  • BIM Development BS 555
  • BIM Awareness
  • BIM -CurrentlyGovernment has given BIM a big boost, but;• Currently still Confusion• BIM seen as an obstacle not an enabler• We are adapting BIM to fit current practices• ‘My’ BIM• Varied Adoption• Software collaboration needs to Improve• Definition of BIM is not important it is about understanding what BIM Enabled Technology can do for you.• We need to understand BIM Better
  • iBIM / Integrated Project Delivery (BIM Level 3)BIM DefinitionChuck Eastman, The BIM Handbook…“an intelligent simulation of architecture.” To enable us to achieve integrateddelivery“BIM alone fails to achieve Level 3 objectives.Only when we have a proper working understanding of BIM will we be able tobegin the next step of integrated BIM (iBIM) and Integrated Project Delivery (IPD)
  • BIM POSSIBLE?• Only Suitable for Large projects?• Just 3D CAD?• Can’t Do refurbishment?• Costs too much?• Takes too long?• Doesnt Suit Our Process?
  • Project Examples – Oldham BSFOldham BSF: North Chadderton School & Sixth FormContractor: Balfour BeattyValue : £20mConsultants:Clarke Bond (SE)RPS Group (M&E)Arup (Fire)
  • Project Examples – Oldham BSFAdvantages• BIM Implementation project• Single source of information – Co-ordination• Ability to adapt design during all stages• Able to produce drawn information quickly• Automated schedule / take off• Worksharing environment• Contractor using BIM for Co-ordinationDisadvantages• Consultants were not using BIM• Software learning curves for design team.
  • Project Examples – Oldham BSFAdvantages – 3D Environment & Rendering
  • Project Examples – Kearsley AcademyContractor : BAMValue: circa £10m
  • Project Examples – Kearsley Academy
  • Project Examples – Kearsley Academy
  • Project Examples – Chesterfield Market• Grade 2 Listed• Refurbishment & Extension• ty+ Rombol (Gifford)• Lonely BIM(s) Proposed Image (3Ds Max) Existing Market Revit Model View
  • Project Examples – Housing Team
  • BIM – Implementation• Planning Implementation Is key • Develop a sound, comprehensive implementation strategy, • Assemble the right team, • Select a suitable starting project• Understand the learning curves• Understand Cost and Benefits to business• ROI –calculators• Hardware requirements
  • Summery- Why use BIM?• Improve design quality• Improve communication• Single source of Information• Increased collaboration with partners• Reduction in waste• Opportunities for re-use of data post construction
  • Conclusions• Industry is developing clear best practice with BIM• More Open about current BIM adoption.• BIM definition is not important it is about understanding the benefits of a BIM Environment• Once we are BIM enabled then we can move to Social and iBIM• Working procedures need to adapt to enable iBIM/IPD• Real risk that not having BIM experience could exclude you from future projectsThe introduction of BIM is not about the adoption of any software; it is probablythe most significant change process you will ever make
  • Questions?Darlington top 5• How will BIM effect construction SME’s ?• What support can the government offer SME’s (training and education being a priority)• What software tools are appropriate for BIM in a contracting environment?• Will all sub-contractors to the main contractor be expected to use BIM tools? If they don’t have them – how will the main contractor share information?• What is the cost of up-skilling and ‘tooling up’ in readiness for BIM?• How quickly will businesses see a return?
