Construction Yorkshire ThinkBIM Seminar Overview of BIM implementationincluding Government perspective 15th March 2012
Key areas to cover today• Some definitions• Why do we need it / what does it do / who isit for?• Where are we coming from / going to?• Who is dealing with this in Government?• How much is it being adopted?• What’s in it for ‘me’ ?• What’s happening in Y&H
What is BIM? A definition• BIM is the process of generating and managing information about a building during its entire life cycle. BIM is a suite of technologies and processes that integrate to form the ‘system’ at the heart of which is a component-based 3D representation of each building element. This replaces traditional design tools currently in use.• Each component is generated from a product library and can have embedded information about the product and its placement, material, specification, fire rating, U-value, fittings, finishes, costs, ‘carbon content’ and any special requirements, which is stored in the system.• “The term BIM is to an extent limiting; it is not all about buildings with walls and roofs, we need to include roads, bridges, railways, process plants and infrastructure.”
Why do it?“……..using the best available technologyto do things faster and better, eliminatewaste and repeated work at the interfaces.To drive out the inefficiencies we need tonormalise data, enter information onceand reuse it many times, turning data intoan asset. It could be as simple as enteringthe name and address of a supplier oncein a single place at the inception of aproject” Dick Barker (Privica/Laing O’Rourke) NBS website

How can it help us do things better? Key Benefits of BIM: Early cost certainty Prototyping Reduced delivery costs Reduced operational costs Green performance Reduced risk Predictable planningWho should use BIM?

Govt Hypothesis “Government as a client can derivesignificant improvements in cost, value and carbon performance through the use of open sharable asset information” Courtesy BIS
Government Policy (2.30) “A lack of compatible systems, standards and protocols, and the differing requirements of clients and designers, have inhibited widespread adoption of a technology which has the capacity to ensure that all team members are working from the same data”Government will require fully collaborative3D BIM (with all project and assetinformation, documentation and data beingelectronic) as a minimum by 2016.
What is the (HMG) Strategy?• Pull (Government) – Be good at buying data (as well as assets and services) – Do it consistently – Leave the “How” to the Supply Chain• Push (Supply Chain) PROJECT – Early Warning to Mobilise PUSH PULL – Training How can we make it easier for the supply chain to move forward? How do we ensure we get the information we need to operate the Asset we have bought? But not force or distort the How do we gather the market? information we need to – Methods & Documentation • • • Contracts Training Technology manage the asset? How do we make it fair so we don’t force or distort the • Legals market? • Make it clear what we want• Deliver Level 2 BIM by 2016 • • • When we want it Collect it electronically Keep it simple to start

What are the benefits?• Better communication• Earlier decision making• Review and clash detect• Improved design coordination• Integrated approach to project delivery• Rapid take-off of geometric properties• Linking construction planning to model timeline (4D) up to 15% savings• Link to Cost (5D) and automated materials scheduling
“what’s in it for me?”• Better visualisation of design and end product• Design and interfaces more easily articulated in 3D – Both leading to improved customer satisfaction• Resulting in better ‘fit’, less site work and greater programme certainty• Construction methodology can be tested in ‘prototype’ leading to smoother delivery (“build twice – once virtually - then for real”) – Reduced site costs, disruption – Programme optimisation• Ability to better forecast costs and interrogate budgets• Asset rich information handed over to client / FM on completion within the model• Government driven policy – MoJ framework
Leeds leading?• Resulting from work in and around Leeds Met, thinkBIM and CSN, we are starting to be at the centre of things in the UK• Meeting held and promoted by Leeds at DLA Piper in London Dec 2011 with most leading insurers attending• Leeds Met founder members of UK BIM Academic Forum• Government recognition for leading work in dealing with Insurance and Legal issues around BIM• Task group set up to deal with key issues – stage 1 – develop standard BIM ‘protocols’ etc.
Top tips• Start at the beginning• Review your business objectives / goals• Understand your supply chain• Gather knowledge on the process and various technology• Speak to vendors• Get involved!
“what is the next step?”• Understand your supply chain capabilities / constraints• Get to use the software – several free BIM viewers available e.g.• Join ThinkBIM and share concerns / knowledge• ThinkBIM and CSN agenda moving towards education and training• SME toolkit / diagnostics in development early 2012• Standard BIM protocols - ditto
BIM in 123 wordsBIM is an acronym for Building Information Modelling,or Building Information Model. It describes theprocess of designing a building collaboratively usingone coherent system of computer models rather thanas separate sets of drawings. Don’t be misled by theword ‘building’ – BIM is just as relevant to the civilengineering sector. It offers enormous gains in savingin cost and time, much greater accuracy in estimation,and the avoidance of error, alterations and reworkdue to information loss. But adopting BIM involvesmuch more than simply changing the software weuse. To achieve all the benefits it offers, everyone inthe architecture, engineering and constructionindustries will have to learn to work in fundamentallynew ways. BIM is a whole new paradigm.
