A: 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:
