PAS1192-2 – Overview
PAS1192-2 Specification for information management for the capital/delivery phase of construction projects using Building Information Modelling.
The purpose of the PAS is to support the objective to achieve BIM maturity Level 2 by specifying requirements for this level, 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.
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. The PAS describes the shared use of individually authored models in a Common Data Environment (CDE), being a single source of information for any given project, used to collect, manage and disseminate all relevant approved project documents for multi-disciplinary teams.
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.
