BIM (Building Information Modelling) compliant construction involves the purchase of data to inform business decisions in relation to whole cost of life assets.
This is achieved through the analysis of 3D design models, alongside product and performance data. BIM markers or milestones are indicated by ‘levels’. Broadly speaking, there are 3 BIM levels, although the markers retain a degree of fluidity depending upon the precise circumstances of a project.
BIM Level 2 is distinguished by its emphasis on collaborative working, with the aim of facilitating free and useful exchange of information between parties. In an effort to bring the construction industry into line with international standards of collaborative working, the UK Government has determined that all centrally procured construction projects must achieve Level 2 BIM from 2016. This requires certain specialised design software, as well as a good understanding of how to use it correctly.
