Moving to BIM can seem like a daunting task. This guide provides
a simple framework that helps you get started putting BIM into
practice in your organization.
Successful implementation of BIM requires a careful and
structured approach that takes into consideration the many
integrated components of a firm’s business, starting with a vision
and leadership extending to individuals who will apply BIM in
their day-to-day execution of projects.
Pilot projects are one component of a well-thought-out BIM
implementation plan. This Guide outlines a framework to assist
organizations in planning for the deployment of BIM pilot projects.
What is BIM? As you move to BIM you should be aware of how your organization’s business, processes, and technology might change, so you can better position your firm to reap the benefits of BIM. Read up on these benefits.
BIM Pilot | A BIM implementation must be supported by the business as a whole. It cannot be an IT initiative, or an R&D one, or done solely at a project or disciplinary level. Check out the guides for successful pilot projects.
BIM Vision | Essential to the success of implementing BIM is a succinct and well-articulated vision from executive leadership. Using published references and guides for implementing BIM standards and best practices such as these is a good starting point.
Driven BIM Leadership | The BIM leadership team must ensure that the BIM vision is translated into actionable tactics to produce the desired outcomes and performance in line with an organization’s strategic objectives. Hear about some tactics for managing change associated with BIM implementation initiatives.
With the groundwork done, it‘s time to pick a pilot project. BIM practitioners take a number of approaches that include completing a fictitious project or competition, re-doing a recent project as a comparison, or starting a new live project for a client. All are valid and depend on the acceptable level of risk and manpower available to undertake your current work.
