WHAT CLIENTS AND ASSET MANAGERS NEED TO KNOW ABOUT BIM

There is a perception that BIM solves the problems of poor quality handover information.
It doesn’t.

It certainly helps, but clients and asset managers have a really important role to play to ensure BIM provides them with what they need – but few really understand what BIM is.

Two common misunderstandings are that:

a) There is a single model that contains everything – “single version of the truth”

b) Information about what products and materials were installed will be in the BIM

In practice, dozens of individual specialists create their own BIM models and schedules that must be federated and coordinated to form a complete digital record of the building.
