  • BIM Standard for the Operational Phase

    BIM comes to the operational phase

    Facilities management has received a major boost from the publication of a new standard for building information modelling (BIM). The work was sponsored by the Construction Industry Council (CIC) on behalf of the Building Information Modelling (BIM) Task Group with support from the UK government, and was undertaken by the British Standards Institution.

  • Getting on Top of Information

    Information mismanagement

    Does your organisation find that it has plenty of data on some buildings and too little on others? Are you sure that you know what information you should have to operate your facilities safely, correctly, efficiently and effectively? If you are in any doubt then you need to take a close look at BS 8587:2012 Guide to Facility Information Management. This standard addresses a fundamental concern: how do we get on top of information and not let it get on top of us?

  • Information Exchange the COBie Way

    Example COBie spreadsheet

    BSI has published BS 1192-4 Collaborative production of information Part 4: Fulfilling employers information exchange requirements using COBie – Code of practice. This new standard provides the foundations and principles of Level 2 BIM and is one of seven deliverables that can help organisations reach Level 2. BIM models rely on the exchange of structured and accurate data throughout an asset’s lifecycle. For this to happen in a clear manner COBie (Construction Operations Building information exchange) is recommended.

  • Security-minded Building Information Modelling

    Security-minded facilities

    The transparency, sharing of data and collaboration of supply chain partners afforded by building information modelling (BIM) means that there is a need for the supply chain to communicate in a security conscious way that still enables business to function, but also minimises the attractiveness of the information for those who might wish to undertake hostile reconnaissance.

    PAS 1192-5:2015, Specification for security-minded building information modelling, digital built environments and smart asset management has been published to specify requirements for security-minded BIM, digital built environments and smart asset management. It outlines the cyber-security vulnerabilities to hostile attack to enable clients and contractors to achieve security-minded modelling. The standard provides a risk assessment process to determine the levels of security for BIM collaboration which should be applied during all phases of the lifecycle, i.e. concept, design, construction, operation and disposal.

    You can download your copy of the standard from the BSI Bookshop.
