    • BIM Building Information ModellingAn insight into the Process and Implicationsof the UK BIM journey so far……Developments and Why Fit for purpose ?Capability Professor Andrew Thomas
    • National BIM Survey for SME contractorsEarly results showing….Never used 3D, clash detection, integration or other BIM toolson a projectIs BIM perceived a core competency / skill in your business (now or in future)Not at all, or only vaguely, familiar with BIM levels https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/NFB_BIM_March12
    • Outstanding Industry performance ?National Audit Office Report and AnalysisUK construction spend £ 55 billion p.a.80% influenced by Public PursePerformance 1999On Budget 25%On Time 34%2011 KPI statistics – 56% of UK projects on Time and Budget
    • Sustainable Construction and Buildings• Buildings use 46% of all energy – up to 70% in major cities• Construction uses 53% of primary materials• Construction has second biggest environmental footprint after food• 13 million tonnes of materials delivered and not used• 90 million tonnes of waste – 3 times domestic output• 21% of all hazardous waste in UK is construction waste
    • Why accept this ?........92% of clients said that designers’ drawings are typically notsufficient for construction37% of materials used in construction become waste10% of the cost of a project is typically due to change orders38% of carbon emissions are from buildings not carsCMAA Owners survey 2005, CMAA Industry Report 2007, Economist Magazine 2002
    • “Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.“ Albert EinsteinSomeone thought it was time for change……
    • Clear Policy .... • No More RDA’s • Quangos ? • 25% budget cuts • £6bn efficiency savings • Austerity • Efficiency • “More for Less”
    • The Client’s Perspective

    • Hypothesis “Government as a client can derivesignificant improvements in cost, value and carbon performance through the use of open sharable asset information”
    • Push Me, Pull meLooking at both:• Supply chain “Push” – how to make easier for the supply chain to make use of BIM(M)• Client “Pull” and specifying a set of data to be provided by the supply chain to the client at specific times.
    • Hypothesis• Valuable: the overall aim is to maximise client value• Understandable: the approach is to be presented in an understandable learning package for all 44,000 government asset procurers.• General: the approach is equally applicable to buildings and infrastructure, whether large and small.• Non Proprietary: All requirements are non-proprietary as to applications and as to the required formats of the deliverables.• Competitive: Wherever possible there are at least two solutions or methods available so as to minimise market influence in terms of anti competitive clauses.• Open: Wherever possible, low-cost methods are to be made available to allow all stakeholders to participate, irrespective of size and experience, so as to minimise barriers to involvement.• Verifiable: all contractual expectations are documented with transparent and testable measurement of pass / fail.• Compliant: Measurement of WLC/Carbon/Sustainability/etc are to published GB, EU and ISO standards• Implementation: the approach is self funding by the industry• Timescale: the approach is phased in over 5 years
    • What is BIM ? Image by courtesy of Autodesk “An integrated digital process providing coordinated, reliableinformation about a project throughout all phases, from design through construction and into operation”
    • Paul Morrell – Government Chief Construction advisor• "We have commissioned a team...to prepare a route map that shows how we can make a progressive move to the routine use of BIM.• I am convinced that this is the way to unlock new ways of working that will reduce cost and add long-term value to the development and management of built assets in the public sector, but the move needs to be made on a basis that is secure, that works for Government clients and those who deliver services to them...• The team will report to the Construction Clients Board ...and I hope and believe it will mark the beginning of a commitment to a timed programme of transformation".
    • Working Group•The Working Group was set up in the spring of 2010 and is supportedjointly by Construction Sector Unit and Electronic and IT Services Unit atBIS.•Co-Chaired by Mark Bew (Scott Wilson and BuildingSMART) and JohnLorimer (Manchester City Council)•In September 2009 report on WG was presented to GovernmentConstruction Clients Board•The Board: - Endorsed progress to date - Agreed to adopt the working group and to receive its final report in March 2011
    • Govt seeks to be greenest thing since Kermit the Frog !Govt Construction Strategy launched 31st May20% savings to be achievedBIM named as essential to delivery and to be mandatedBIM strategy and report published June 2011BIM to be adopted on Govt projects - March 2016IGT Low Carbon Construction response June 2011Carbon reduction from sectorBIM named as essential to delivery and to be mandated
    • “Is our sector fit-for-purpose for a future low carbon economy?” BIS Innovation and Growth Team• Paul Morrell’s report published Nov 2010• Sector response to the UK’s low carbon transition strategy – “a road map for construction”• 26% carbon reduction by 2020, 80% by 2050 (1990 baseline)“integration [and collaborative working] is key”
    • Cash vs Carbon
    • “Government will requirefully collaborative 3DBIM….as a minimum by 2016”“A staged plan will bepublished with mandatedmilestones..”.“a phased process workingclosely with industrygroups…..“allow time for industry toprepare for the developmentof new standards and fortraining”
    • Tests and Pilot Schemes• MOJ – 4 key projects of 4 disciplines• MOD – 2 pilots – new and refurb• Manchester CC – adjacent projects Traditional and BIM• TFL – station pilots• HA – pilots identifiedLeverage of Framework arrangements
    • Current Reality ? or for some Recent Past.....
    • Traditional document/2D-based process Information is exchanged as documents - often even on paper - which causes non-value- adding work, friction, data losses and errors
    • Need to re-think the process ?Phases Tasks Problems: • process } 80% human issues • skills • technology } 20% technologyActors
    • BIM a 3D modelling system that involves data sharingbetween all the contractors on a project to create a digital model that can be used from a project’s early design stages through to completion and monitoring of subsequent performance.
    • Integrated BIM-based process Information is shared in an exploitable data format directly between different systems; BIM - Building Information Model
    • Different image: What if you are the only node? No information to import? With whom can you integrate? How to develop your systems and processes?
    • Maturing market...where are you
    • “Media” affects our thinkingDesign by experience - physical models Back to the illustrative Manual drafting and tracing, representation highly illustrative drawings Integrated BIM Requirement for building permit drawings in Finland Manual drafting, copying machines, simplified/abstract representation Early CAD = automated drafting Modelling Interoperability Simulation Collaboration platforms Future technologies 1775 1900 1985 2000 2010 2012
    • BIM technologies
    • What BIM is not……BIM is not Panacea to all sector illsBIM is not 3D CADBIM is not a single building modelBIM is not a single software technologyBIM is……A tool to improve collaborationBIM needs rules and processes
