The ‘information’ part of BIM is the most important but difficult part to get right. It is the ability to capture, manage and re-use building related data and integrate the data with internal systems already in use; that ultimately enables the facilities management team to maximise the efficient operation of a building, estate or property portfolio.
But BIM data management isn’t just about the software or the data. It is about creating access to information via practical processes and accessible technology. This access to information enables the relevant people to adapt and improve the efficiency of the buildings they are responsible for.
A good data management system means you can avoid wasteful activities such as:
- waiting and searching for information
- repeatedly reproducing the same data for use in different projects
- removing human error
By using The Information Delivery Cycle defined in the BS 1192:2007, we can help you define your information requirements and put in place the structures to implement these effectively.
Cadnet has the experience of implementing Level 2 BIM data management schemes on a range of different size projects and can help you from the development of your strategy through to the detailed delivery on the ground.
