Building information modeling is an approach to the erection, equipping, provision of operation, and repair of the building, which involves the collection and comprehensive processing. In the design process, all architectural, engineering, technological, economic, and other information about the building with all its relationships and dependencies is taken into account. In BIM, the building and everything that has to do with it is considered as a single object.

3D model of the building, or other building objects, associated with the information database, in which each element of the model can be assigned additional attributes. The peculiarity of this approach is that the building object is designed as a whole. Changing one of its parameters entails the automatic change of other related parameters and objects, up to drawings, visualizations, specifications, and timetables.

BIM level 2 standards require that the information must meet three basic requirements:

  • Easily transferable - BIM level 2 COBIE - format;
  • Easily manageable;
  • Facilitates full collaboration work.

The key elements of BIM level are as follows:

  • Compliant to customer requirements;
  • Facilitates collaborative work;
  • Authoring models;
  • Common data classification;
  • Information sharing methods;
  • Creating a federated project model.

Project participants must master BIM level 2 requirements and must be able to interact with them.

Stages and Equipment

BIM levels apply to and more information about BIM standards guides and resources. The implementation of the project consists of several stages.

  • If you want to work on a particular project, you must understand the principles of BIM and comply with all its requirements. The requirements are declared in the BIM protocol. This document is a legal supplement to the overall project documentation. This addendum will accompany every government contract.
  • Creation of a project plan. The plan consists of basic information and information on the customer's assignment. A BIM execution plan is also attached.
  • Throughout the project, there will be interactions about sharing complex information with our team. A common workspace is used for this purpose. Project management also takes place within this space.
  • A mandatory requirement of the technology is the secure exchange of data according to the PAS 1192-5 standard. This may require you to have additional controls to ensure the security of the information exchange. This must be robust software.
  • Uniform Classification System. This is needed so that everyone involved in the project needs to knows where certain data is located.
  • A COBie, a spreadsheet for storing and sharing data, will be needed. During the project, this data will serve as a source of non-graphical information. At the end of the project, it can be used to verify that the data meets the customer's requirements.
  • At the end of the project, the client receives a completed model of the object.

Where it is used?

In addition to Level 2, the next level of technology maturity is also in practice. BIM level 3 helps to reduce waste and costs in industry and construction. It increases the environmental friendliness of projects and helps to create more value in each project. Moving to BIM level 2 requires the implementation of a facility lifecycle management system.

How much does it cost?

The cost of each project is different from other projects. The price of the order is formed based on many factors. If the source data is ready, the client pays only for the project. If there is a need to form source materials, we practice an hourly tariff system. To find out the exact cost of your project we recommend to contact our manager or leave your contacts.
