BIM Management

Within BiM management the question becomes; who is the model ‘host/owner’ and who will be the overseer of the flow of information to resolve the possible conflicts that may result? The architect normally seems to be, in principle, the designated person, as he lays the foundation for the design and BIM. This can carry a risk however, as the architect must in addition to overall control of the model take care to coordinate his own input. In a conflict between inputs of different advisers is possible that the architect (as adviser and manager of the model) is not actually free to act independently. Example: an architect could change materials unaware of other advisers’ minimum requirements. For large projects, an independent manager of the BIM can add value for controlling the model for completeness, accuracy and resolving conflicts.

Building Information Model (BIM)

Calculation and cost control through the BIM

Working with a Building Information Model not only makes it possible to map the composition of a building and the properties of individual components in advance - the planning of work and construction costs can also be integrated into the model. This provides interesting benefits in the area of ​​cost control.

By realizing a direct link between calculation and calculation software and the construction information, all facets of the construction project can be calculated faster and more transparently. In addition, the model ensures that the influence of structural changes is automatically implemented in all dependent objects, which prevents important details from being overlooked.

IGG uses the BIMCalc calculation package to link construction costs to the Construction Information Model. This independently developed software makes it possible to calculate the construction costs of a BIM directly in Autodesk Revit.

An independent BIM manager?

The task of an independent BIM manager is not complicated and can be very effective and has the advantage of being at arms length, it also defines from the first stages the responsibilities.

Tasks of the BIM manager:

  • drafting BIM Plan;
  • preparation of Requirements of the required inputs;
  • tuning effect level;
  • assessing and managing conflicts.
