What does the Client require from BIM?

What does the Client require from BIM?

Yesterday I attended the BIM4M2 ‘BIM for Manufacturers: Countdown to Mandatory Government BIM’ seminar, which was designed to help support building product manufacturers with BIM adoption.

One of the sessions, presented by Terry Stocks of Faithful+Gould, addressed the Client’s perspective and what they require from BIM data. Here is the summary Terry gave of the key points:

BIM improves the delivery process and information, and operational life cycle operation:
• Better time, cost, quality outcomes (50% faster, 50% less carbon, right first time)
• Better predictability of outcomes
• Lifecycle savings (33% WLCC Target)

Where are the clients?
• BIM Mandate is now here and Central Government clients are asking for project data
• OIR (Organisational Information Requirements) / AIR (Asset Information Requirements / EIR (Employer’s Information Requirements) – PIM (Project Information Model) and AIM (Asset Information Model) to CAFM and AMS
• Support for BIM from the highest level

What do clients want?
• A BIM capable supply chain working with the client
• Supply chain engaged at all levels supported in their approach to BIM
• Growing use of standard designs and libraries where possible
