In this short video, our Digital Construction Account Manager, Sam Lissaman, looks at the types of BIM documents that may be required from Design teams and why these are so important in the successful delivery of a project.
What are the Key BIM Documents for Design teams?
As a design team, you will come across various documents throughout a BIM project. These may include:
- Pre Contract BIM Execution Plan (BEP)
- Post Contract BIM Execution Plan (BEP)
- Various other documents such as the Model Production Delivery Table and the LOR and LOI.
Why should you have robust BIM Documentation?
Design teams should have robust BIM documentation because:
- It is mandatory on some BIM Level 2 projects, meaning, without the key BIM documents, you will not be able to be part of the tendering process. E.g. Public Sector Projects as well as Clients with specific Digital Construction and COBie requirements.
- It is a good opportunity to showcase that your BIM competency
- It will enable you to reduce the risk to your business as you will be outlining exactly what you need, what you will deliver and how.
How do you develop and maintain good BIM Documentation?
You can develop and maintain good BIM Documentation in-house if you have the knowledge and resource required to do so if you are unsure about this, Majenta is able to help with the verification of any documents that you have created.
For some design teams, developing good BIM Documentation can be a challenge. This may be because, due to resource, or it may be a capability problem; in terms of they haven’t been required to create this type of document before and therefore need some external help. This is often the situation we find with the design teams who approach us, from here, Majenta can either support in the training of your staff to deliver these documents or alternatively, we can create these documents for you.
