An introduction

In May 2011, the UK Government mandated a minimum requirement for level 2 BIM on centrally-procured public projects from April 2016. This distinguished level of collaborative working requires all parties to produce 3D models with all associated project and asset data being electronic and delivered in accordance with processes set out in Publically Available Specifications, PAS 1192-2 and PAS 1192-3.

Since the mandate, the industry has witnessed BIM being widely adopted on non-mandated projects due to the many efficiencies it can provide.

For many, understanding what impact these requirements have on their method of working can be daunting, and now with the recently released international BIM Standards to adhere to, BS EN ISO 19650-1:2018 and BS EN ISO 19650-2:2018 this can become ever more confusing.

Whether your team is new to BIM or simply looking to transition to the new ISO standards, Waldeck’s BIM Consultancy offering can assist you with every step.

Veronica Ruby-Lewis, Associate Director within Waldeck’s Digital and Technologies team commented: “While most feel daunted by the proposition of adopting and implementing BIM within their organisations and projects, the reality is, it can be made much simpler if the road-map to adoption is broken down into smaller manageable steps.

“We have seen first-hand how this approach also helps with the cultural shift to new ways of working, whilst seeing huge efficiencies as a reward.”
