BSI – home of BIM standardisation
Through its technical committee, B/555 – Construction design, modelling and data exchange, BSI has been developing standards to support Building information modelling since 2006. The most well-known and utilised Standard is BS 1192:2007 Collaborative production of architectural, engineering and construction information –Code of practice. It is supported by “Building Information Management – A Standard Framework and Guide to BS 1192” – a jointly published guide with CPI. This work has been assisted by the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS).
For further information on the BIM deliverables from B/555, such as the BS 8541 Library Objects series and BS 7000-4: 2013 Design management systems: Guide to managing design in construction, please follow this link to the B/555 Roadmap.
BSI has also been contracted by the Construction Industry Council to deliver two documents in support of the HMG BIM strategy:
PAS 1192-2:2013, Specification for information management for the capital/delivery phase of construction projects using Building Information Modelling. This standard was developed to support Government early-adopter clients and the supply chain in achieving Level 2 BIM. PAS 1192-2 builds on BS 1192:2007.
PAS 1192-3 Specification for information management for the operational phase of assets using building information modelling, to be published in the spring of 2014, will offer guidance on the use and maintenance of the asset information model (AIM) to support the planned preventative maintenance programme and the portfolio management activity for the life of the asset.
