  • Thanks for the invite Get into real world Background: Construction Background: Bovis Consultancy; Project, Risk & Value Management – light rail and arts Herts County Council – Capital and R&M programmes and asset management lead for a variety of areas including asbestos mgt and carbon reduction UNCLASSIFIED
  • Emphasis on supporting the implementation and sharing of good practice that we BSRIA framework underpinning policy Part of the GCS led by Paul Morrell Ensuring a link between asset mgt decisions and, design and in use performance. Want to test this performance at various project stages. Always focus on capital and not in life cost and business benefit; want to achieve a new focus for projects. Proposing to GCB that process becomes mandatory for all govt projects as BIM. NB. Recent All Party Group for Excellence in the Built Environment in A Better Deal for Public Building supported GSL.

  • Part of the GCS led by Paul Morrell Ensuring a link between asset mgt decisions and, design and in use performance. Want to test this performance at various project stages. Always focus on capital and not in life cost and business benefit; want to achieve a new focus for projects. Supported by recent All Party Group for Excellence in the Built Environment in A Better Deal for Public Building supported GSL. UNCLASSIFIED
  • It can be scary procuring a new building – especially for those noew Do not always get what we want or expect Sometimes the baton gets dropped UNCLASSIFIED
  • - Current focus is on capital Process on drivers and suppliers that have long-term impact Business planning Project planning Change control looking at WLC and in use costs UNCLASSIFIED
  • Business outcomes – support clients to think of these Work on these through engaging with users and maintainers Work for handover and speeding up optimum performance of the Building Mandated by GCB for use on all CGD by 2016 UNCLASSIFIED
  • The policy proposed to the GCB will contain the following key principles Engagement to make sure that the building design considers operational needs. This through a GSL Champion so needs are adressed. Aftercare; support operation and recognise its importance. Also allows for continual updating of expected performance by linking design with CAFM systems through BIM. It may also be about people who are outside of the Office UNCLASSIFIED
  • What do we expect to be done to achieve the govt policy? UNCLASSIFIED
  • To deliver GSL four areas need to be addressed throughout all of the project. These are: - Environmental Performance: Each project will have an Environmental performance plan at the core of the design brief. - Facilities Management: There will be a clear, cost efficient vision and strategy for managing the facilities. - Commissioning, Training and Handover: The building will be delivered and handed over through a plan specifically designed to meet the needs of the End Users, Building Managers, Facilities Managers and Occupiers. Functionality & effectiveness : Facilities that are designed to meet the needs of the Project Sponsor and Occupiers and provide an effective, productive working environment. Reason for identifying four areas is to support government projects in identifying key areas of performance – recognised that these areas will cross over each other. UNCLASSIFIED
  • Key to the role is bringing end user expertise at the start of the project. Need to make it clear that this is not an additional cost and; ownership is key – outsourcing this function could lead to failure as no ongoing accountability the GSL champion may be one person or a co-ordinator of others or more depending upon the size of the project and its stage. This is a role thought that may be partly carried out already within existing projects and not recognised. We are looking to the GSL champion to make sure that the policy is implemented FM side needs to lead this BIFM – Common Asset Management Referencing System UNCLASSIFIED
  • Aftercare. Summary: How we support the needs of the end users as a project passes through final construction into full-time occupancy 1 to 5 years or 1 to 3? Post Occupancy Evaluation: Tends to be undertaken through a combination of the following: Review of energy performance, e.g., TM22 (CIBSE) Building In Use Study– focused on user satisfaction and or / controls / environmental factors such as heating cooling Defects liability – push liability down the supply chain May be better to performance manage contractors to deliver what is expected Virtual contract trial projects in place to support link between performance and outcomes. UNCLASSIFIED
  • Currently: - Policy to Broad Proposes that GSL mandated to all projects by 2016 as BIM. UNCLASSIFIED

  • NBS is part of RIBA Enterprises. RIBA Enterprises is the knowledge arm of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) For almost 40 years we have been writing specification information for the industry with a range of online and desktop based specification tools. Specification Manager to NBS Building and now NBS Create. NBS Scheduler for minor works/refurbishment projects and NBS Domestic for domestic specifications. NBS is the de-facto standard specification for the UK - Architecture, Landscape, Mechanical, Electrical and Structural Engineering For over 15 years we have been working with IHS to deliver The Construction Information Service. This is an expert knowledge tool that delivers key technical information critical to all construction projects in one easy-to-use, online package providing instant full-text access to current regulations, standards, technical advice and a vast array of related news and briefings. NBS is also the official publisher of the Approved Documents in England on behalf of the DCLG. We sell both the paper copies via ribabookshops and enhanced electronic copies via our NBS Building Regulations service.
  • NBS is the de-facto standard specification for the UK - Architecture, Landscape, Mechanical, Electrical and Structural Engineering NBS seamlessly links with the Construction Information Service – 30,000 key documents from over 100 publishers NBS seamlessly links with over 20,000 product specifications from over 600 manufacturers – also links to catalogues, CPD, installation and maintenance manuals The Building Regulations Approved Documents are published by NBS for the DCLG
  • If you need a strategy to succeed. You need support from the top.’ Change the construction industry by adopting BIM. Position the UK to become world-leaders in BIM. Construction is 7% of UK GDP. £110bn. And public sector is 40%. What the central government say has a massive influence over the industry due to their spending power.
  • The BIM Task Group brings together expertise from industry, government, public sector, institutes and academia. It has now been a year since the Government Construction Strategy was published by the Cabinet office on 31 May 2011. The report announced the Governments intention to require: collaborative 3D BIM (with all project and asset information, documentation and data being electronic) on its projects by 2016. Then finally, the Construction Strategy… We see that the phrasing suggesting BIM is “probably” the answer has changed to “BIM is the requirement” The £50m limit had been removed. The government now require it. Two clear aims To give better value to the UK tax payer – save 20% on build and operation costs of UK built environment Specify requirements only, this will stimulate higher levels of innovation and lift the UK construction industry. This will make construction more affordable at home and create new opportunities abroad. For 2 years running between 2010 and 2011 we performed our annual National BIM report – see for details. We see An increase in the awareness (not using) of BIM (45->48%) A significant increase in the percentages aware and using BIM (13->31%) A significant decrease in the percentages of people neither aware or using BIM (43->21%) So the tide is turning but still many of our customers appear to be unaware or not using BIM. We expect this to change over the next few years. 95% of respondents said they would be using BIM in 5years time.
  • Change is needed. But to reinforce this, what happens if you don’t recognise the need for change. 1975 – Kodak builds one of the first digital cameras 1976 – 90% of film and 85% of camera sales in USA 1996 - $16billion revenue … But then… 2012 – file for bankruptcy protection Digital is the future. Cameras, movies, music, surveys, voting, shopping… and also construction.
  • The previous slide showed a performance specification. This slide shows how the specification can be developed to specify the products that make up a system and how the links to the 20,000 product specs from 600 manufacturers work.
  • NBS Create can be used at early stages of a project to create an outline specification. It can be used throughout a construciton project and can generate an as built record for FM.
  • Comprehensive NBS guidance with links to other useful sources of information.
  • System outline clauses guide you through the specification process.
  • Systems can be visualised Green – System outline Yellow – Performance clause Pink – Product clauses Purple – Execution clauses
  • Export form Create to COBie.
  • The National BIM Library was launched in March 2012. Now 7 months old. Contains over 600 BIM objects. Look up breakdown of objects from hammys emails…
  • Introducing the new NBS Revit Toolbar v1.0 Free NBS plug-in released for Autodesk Revit At NBS we know that our software and technical information fits into the wider construction workflow. With this in mind, we aim to help construction professionals save time and improve accuracy with respect to coordinating their project information. A year ago we released an open software toolkit that allows NBS to be embedded into other software applications. This was done with the hope that other construction software vendors that produce documentation, CAD, programming or costing tools would choose to work with us. We are now delighted to have plug-ins for two of the major international BIM software tools. A plug-in for Graphisoft ArchiCAD was released last year, we have just released a plug-in for Autodesk Revit and we are optimistic that more will follow. Figure 1 below shows the ribbon tool-bar from the Autodesk Revit plug-in. Figure 1 - The NBS for Autodesk Revit plug-in It can be seen that the Revit database may be linked to an NBS specification file. The user may then associate the objects within the Revit model with the corresponding systems and products in the specification. Prior to issuing documentation generated from the coordinated Revit and NBS models, the user may select to "Verify all annotations" to ensure that all associated information is fine and fix any information where required. Figure 2 below shows a washroom that has been annotated using the plug-in: The key reference information from the specification is added as parameters to the corresponding Revit objects. This means that the data may be used in tags and schedules and manipulated to appear in whatever format a particular practice chooses. Furthermore, as these parameters are stored against the objects, then as this information is transferred to construction or FM systems then it is maintained. Figure 4 shows this information within the Solibri Model Checker software following an export from Revit to IFC 2x3. Figure 4 - Information flowing through the construction process using IFC We will continue to improve the software tool kit so that more functionality is added to our plug-ins. We will also strive to work with other software vendors in the industry to support the workflows in the construction industry. Launched

    2. 2. Government Soft Landings (GSL)part of Government Construction Strategy
    3. 3. Government Soft Landings (GSL)Government Construction StrategyThis identified need to improve public sector construction and contribute to growth and efficiency through a number of means. One of these was:“Delivering alignment of design & construction with operation and asset management.”This is by building on the BSRIA Soft Landings Framework to look at the project stages of:1.Inception and briefing2.Design Development3.Pre-Handover4.Initial Aftercare5.Aftercare 1 – 5 years after handover
    4. 4. Drivers: Expectations not matchingdelivery
    5. 5. Drivers: Benefit and cost is inasset performance and not creation
    6. 6. Government Soft Landings(GSL)What is it?A method to:- Ensuring that projects meet the business outcomes needed- Assess the needs of maintainers and users through their early engagement- Combined with BIM a method to review delivery of needs through design and construction- Working with suppliers, operators and users to ensure a smooth transition from construction to operation- Assess the delivery of operational needs in use- Mandated from Government Construction Board for full implementation in line with BIM
    7. 7. GSL Guiding Principles • GSL will be a key element of the design and construction process maintaining the ‘golden thread’ of the building purpose through to delivery and operation • Early engagement of end user and inclusion of GSL champion on project team during the design/construction process • Commitment to aftercare post construction from design and construction team • Post occupancy evaluation and feedback to design/construction team and lessons learnt captured for future projects • Combined with BIM will provide a fully populated asset data set to feed into CAFM systems and modelling will enable planning modifications, this data will need to be maintained throughout the building life cycle
    8. 8. GSL Policy – Actions needed• ‘Golden thread’ – Client to have clear targets around all or some of 4 areas at the start• GSL Champion – From client / end user: to oversee process using guide• Commitment to aftercare – Designers and contractors be engaged post construction. (Contractual approach being developed).• Post occupancy evaluation and feedback – Energy monitoring (TM22 ) – Other measures based on ‘golden thread’ – FM needs to be pro-active in change management – Good practice commissioning to be followed• Combined with BIM data needs to be fed into CAFM systems – Being developed through BIM Technology Alliance Group

    10. 10. The role of the GSL ChampionCritical to ensuring that a project meets client and userneeds and is maintainable.Is not an additional cost or contractual role to theproject, skills required already exist within Estates/FM teams.-Role identified within project team-Act as a pro-active voice for end users and FM-Support on delivering four areas of focus and embed measurements-Identify and prevent traditional problems from being realised ongovernment projects-Ensure BIM data feeds into CAFM systems with fully populated assetregister-Maintain continuity of involvement with the project from concept tooperation-Ensure post occupancy evaluation and monitoring undertaken and lessonslearnt feedback for future projects via BIM
    11. 11. Post Occupancy Evaluation & AftercarePerception of contractors by operators was one where they walk awayfrom completed projects and leave client and building management teamsto guess how buildings work or review reams of manuals.Designers have not been incentivised to identify if the design has met thebusiness needs.GSL will bring a new focus to:-Aftercare: Through handover and initial occupancythrough a developed and resourced plan.-Post Occupancy Evaluation: Establish success ofoutcomes against expectations and feedback.-Standardised measurement key – TM22/BUSbeing explored-Automatic population of CAFM from BIM data setsthrough COBie
    12. 12. GSL where are we now? What have we done? What have we to do? - Developed GSL to align with - Monitor and review guidance BIM - Develop methodology and - Developed policy now agreed measures for Post Operation and mandated by GCB - Progress and review guidance - Produced draft guidance for with early adopters implementation - Establish GSL Champions - Identified and engaged with - Progress link between early adopter projects performance and contract - Develop CAFM / COBie link - Progress GSL Infrastructure

Our aim is to focus on the centre of BIM, placing Information at the heart of the construction process. We will show that there is much more to BIM than enhanced visualisation and automatic scheduling’’ Richard Waterhouse, CEO RIBA Enterprises
    28. 28. Where are we now with BIM?1. Visualisations Design concepts can be beautifully illustrated.2. Unlimited drawings and schedules Make a change to the model and the output documents update.3. Clash detection Eliminate clashes prior to the construction work starting. Now it is time to focus on the information in BIM

    31. 31. How is BIM changing the specification process?Traditional approach:• Specifications left until the last minute.• Separate documents, limited integration.BIM approach:• Specifications assembled at earlier stages.• Integrated with other project information.• Specification information will flow through to later stages of the project and be used by contractors and FM operators proactively.• Specification content is connected for ease of assembly and greater precision.
    32. 32. How is BIM changing the specification process?How is NBS changing?• NBS Create is a brand new method of specification that is built for BIM.• Specify at early stages of a project and build upon this throughout the project timeline.• Comprehensive product clauses with manufacturer options.• Specifications can interoperate between project team members• Clauses are connected for quick and precise assembly.• Specifications can be exported to COBie.
