  9. 9. The RegBIM project …a Preview The RegBIM project
  10. 10. A “button” here The RegBIM User Interface will be able to be launched from your BIM authoring software via an integrated “button”… Opening the software The RegBIM project
  11. 11. Or you can launch direct from your desktop… When launching from the desktop, you‟ll need to identify which BIM file you want to use. Once opened, you then select which standards or regulations you want the tool to check. Opening the software The RegBIM project
  12. 12. The RegBIM software presents results in a simple table. At any point, you can add or remove any regulations or standards from those being checked through the “Configure RegBIM” button. Initial Category Results The RegBIM project
  13. 13. Results can also be presented as a graph for each individual standard checked. These show three columns: - The RegBIM project Best achievable score for you - Initial Category Results Graph Total in section Your current score
  14. 14. The software also shows the overall provisional score achieved so far, as well as the maximum achievable score for your project. Current score Best possible score Initial Overall Results Graph The RegBIM project
  15. 15. The software highlights each result that has information missing. The more complete the BIM used, the less data will be shown as missing. Information required is always shown under the “Warnings” banner Additional information can be added directly against any of the highlighted warnings. Add Information via Warnings The RegBIM project
  16. 16. The software also allows each individual topic to be explored. Selecting “Information” allows you to explore exactly how each topic has been scored, and see what relevant information is missing. Add Information via Trees The RegBIM project
  17. 17. The software also allows each individual topic to be explored. Selecting “Information” allows you to explore exactly how each topic has been scored, and see what relevant information is missing. The software produces a “tree diagram” of all the requirements for the individual topic. This allows you to navigate through to the best possible outcome sequentially. Add Information via Trees The RegBIM project Information added is kept in a supplementary IFC file.
  18. 18. Of course, information can also be added directly into the primary BIM data for the project. Uploading the new IFC file containing the new data will allow the software to run checks using the new information. Add More Information via BIM The RegBIM project
  19. 19. The software is available throughout the project development. This means you can use it repeatedly to gradually build up compliance as the information becomes available. Every time you open the software, it remembers your last settings to allow you to quickly re-check compliance for previously selected standards or regulations. Design Development The RegBIM project
  20. 20. Since the software is available throughout the project development, you can keep track of information which is definite, and which you might need to go back to and check later, This allows you to generate a estimated result without having finalised everything in your BIM. Certainty & Uncertainty The RegBIM project
  21. 21. After installing the software, the initial configuration only involves „mapping‟ the software to the correct server. This mapping will be assigned to you by the RegBIM provider. Adding the mapping allows the software to access the server-based calculation engine and run the software. Setting Up the Software The RegBIM project
  22. 22. The software can also be configured to cope with any unique naming conventions used. For example, if the industry standard name is “Swimming Pool” but you call it “SPOOL”, this can be added. Adding unique naming conventions allows the software to “find” relevant data in the BIM Setting Up the Software The RegBIM project
  23. 23. When you‟re content, the software can generate a provision result. This result is obviously dependent on all the inputted data being accurate. The software itemises all the warnings upon which the result is dependent. Provisional Final Results The RegBIM project
