PAS1192:2 Specification for information management for the capital/delivery phase of construction projects using Building Information Modelling.

What is it?  (Who should read this?)

A strategic objective has been set to achieve maturity Level 2 (see diagram below) building information modelling (BIM) on all public sector asset procurement, with equal applicability to private sector building, infrastructure, refurbishment and new-build projects.

The purpose of the PAS is to support this objective by specifies requirements for achieving Level 2, setting set out the framework for collaborative working on BIM enabled projects and providing specific guidance for the information management requirements associated with projects delivered using BIM.

PAS1192 and its sister standard BS1192:2007 are the only tried and tested standards that support the Construction BIM Strategy to achieve Level 2 compliance and the desired reduction in CAPEX out turn cost.  The standards have been developed and tested, supported by government funding, and with the application of legal rigor for contractual and procurement provision.


The requirements within the PAS build on the existing code of practice for the collaborative production of architectural, engineering and construction information, defined within BS 1192:2007. BS1192:2007 provides details of the standards and processes that should be adopted to enable consistent, structured, efficient and accurate information exchange. However, only information exchanges specific to BIM (i.e. structured data) are described in this PAS.

In addition, PAS 1192-2 focuses specifically on the ‘delivery’ phase of projects (from strategic identification of need through to handover of asset), where the majority of graphical data, non-graphical data and documents are accumulated from design and construction activities.

A forthcoming document, PAS 1192-3, to be developed, 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.

How do I use it?

PAS 1192:2 provides a framework, from which a number of supplementary documents will provide detailed guidance. The requirements of the PAS need to be applied specifically to individual projects,  whereby commencing at the point of assessment (for existing assets) or statement of need (for new assets) and progressively working through the various stages of the information delivery cycle, the requirements within this PAS culminate with the delivery of the as-constructed asset information model (AIM). This is handed over to the employer by the supplier.

The PAS includes:

–           Taxonomy of terms

–           References to other relevant BSI standards, CPI guidance and other documents

–           Definitions for Process and Data needs

–           Roles and Responsibilities

–           Sources for Key Templates for documents referenced in the PAS

Who should use it?

The intended audience for this PAS includes organizations and individuals responsible for the procurement, design, construction, delivery, operation and maintenance of buildings and infrastructure assets:

–           Clients

–           Managers

–           Designers

–           Contractors

The sister document, PAS 1192-3 page  offers guidance on the use  PAS 1192-3 How do I use it page 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.
