RICS perspective on project managers and BIM - Matthew Saunders

  1. 1. RICS Perspective on Project Managers & BIM Matthew Saunders BEng, MSc, MRICS Associate Director of Built Environment Professional Groups, Built Environment
  2. 2. Contents • RICS in context • The BIM challenge • RICS activity – RICS BIM Manager Certification – BIM Manager training – Guidance • Software vendor challenge • Questions
  3. 3. The RICS in context
  4. 4. RICS in context • Global professional body, 140k • Land, Property & Construction • Standards, Guidance, Policy • Products
  5. 5. The BIM challenge
  6. 6. Questions? Change
  7. 7. The BIM Challenge - Industry Naysayer: “Fallible” “Expensive” “Moving goal posts” “The next fad” Trailblazer: “Paradigm shift” “Essential Investment” “Standards are set” “Future proof” Cultural & Behavioural Change
  8. 8. A human challenge “Dealing with people is probably the biggest problem you face, especially if you are in business. Yes, and that is also true if you are a housewife, architect or engineer.” Dale Carnegie
  9. 9. Our Challenge Is BIM relevant to all?
  10. 10. Our challenge Connecting the dots Land ConstructionProperty
  11. 11. BIM & Project Management
  12. 12. Where are the PM’s? “QS’s scared of BIM!!”
  13. 13. Opportunity or obligation? BIM Time Tech Quality Risk Cost Sustain ability
  14. 14. Talk about benefits Project delivery Business benefits Strategy Brief Concept Definition Design Build Handover & close- out Operation & end of life DPoW
  15. 15. Our activities
  16. 16. BIM Training • Distance Learning: – 5 months - £1,495 - 20+ delegates • 1 Day Introduction: – F2F - £295 - 30th April - 8+ delegates • Blended Learning: – F2F + Distance learning • In-house training: – Bespoke to client
  17. 17. BIM Manager Certification Syllabus: • BIM initiation • Processes • Collaboration & integration • Technology • Commercial & contract
  18. 18. • BIM implementation guide • 5D BIM Surveyor • QS Protocol RICS Guidance
  19. 19. DPoW 3
  20. 20. Capex & Opex cost data sets 2D Line Drawings 3D Object Models 4D Time - Schedules 5D Cost Plans / Estimates 6+D Operation / Maintenance LCC, Carbon, Water, etc • Standards • Consistency • Efficiency • Better decision making
  21. 21. Software vendor challenge
  22. 22. Laser Scanning of Parliament Square
  23. 23. Laser Scanning of Parliament Square
  24. 24. Scan to BIM
  25. 25. • Four different software vendors • One BIM model • One set of questions • And a tape measure… BIM Vendor Showcase
  26. 26. To Understand: • How BIM software can take off quantities • The challenges faced • What assumptions were made • How the results compare against ‘a tape measure’ • Any consistency in the results • What levels of checking should be applied to outputs • Considerations for BIM of ‘existing buildings’ BIM Vendor Showcase - Purpose
  27. 27. • What the showcase is not: BIM Vendor Showcase
  28. 28. Gross Internal Floor Area The Results Raw data gives a cost variance of 27% * Actually <10% on a like-for-like basis
  29. 29. BIM Vendor Showcase - Findings • Software worked in different ways – 1 way flow vs real-time interactions • The BIM was incomplete • The model was not designed in a way that made it easy to extract the information • There were errors in the model • The software needed inputs from professionals who understand the appropriate standards/ classifications
  30. 30. BIM Vendor Showcase - Summary • Technology can do the heavy lifting • Content planning and model ‘quality’ is key to success – Identify what the purpose of the Model is and then plan design requirements around it • Understand the workflow and collaborative philosophy of the software you use • Checking, checking and more checking!
  31. 31. • Importance of the survey specification • Importance of the BEP • Ensure designers & QS are using the appropriate standards • Peer reviews/ quality assurance/ checking • Create a collaborative environment Summary for PMs
  32. 32. Summary • RICS • The BIM challenge • Training and accreditation • Software vendor challenge
  33. 33. Questions?
