Transcript of So BIM and the practice ?

BIM 2015
Life Beyond the Tip
Architecture in the Cloud
The Dimensions of BIM
Name the 6D's of BIM? (CREAM EGG)
2D - Traditional CAD Plans

3D - Basic geometry in 3 Dimensions

4D - Time

5D- Quantity and Cost Information

6D- Life cycle Management - PLM
Building Life Cycle Management
BIM IMplementation
is the tip of the ICEBERG!
BIM is an acronym for Building Information Model. It describes the process of designing a building collaboratively using one coherent set of BIM data rather than as separate sets of drawings. A BIM is a complete data set of a facility that can be used to construct, maintain and demolish the building.
Common misconceptions about BIM
1. BIM is not a technology
BIM is an ethos, it is a collaborative way of working,
tools suchs as Revit / Archicad facilitate the ability to produce
BIM Data.
2. BIM Applications are difficult to learn
The concerns for lacks of productivity are fears about how long it will take to transition of a BIM solution.

In reality purpose Built BIM solutions are created specifically for you! They make your life easier.
3. BIM disrupts current workflows
The fact is it does, however the workflows is disrupts are inefficient ones. For example changing a window type on a plan, that could result in having to redraw multiple drawings within a project. A BIM authoring tool would automatically update all the drawings once the window type has been changed with the BIM.
4. Value of BIM? Who?
So who benefits from BIM? The Architect? the engineer? Or is most of the value of BIM realised by the contractor or owner?

The answer is both. By reducing duplicated efforts of conventional drafting and coordination methods, BIM allows designers to concentrate on high value design understand more about the design earlier through analysis and visualisation and deliver as much value to the owner as possible.
The UK Governments Road to BIM
in 2016 BIM will lock 27billions worth of work per year if you can not achieve level 2 compliance. It will destroy companies.

However if you have BIM skills it will open many doors in your career. Its a simple fact that BIM skilled graduates will get jobs over others, and you will get paid more!

Beyond BIM Implementation?
The 10 Truths about BIM

1. BIM takes design to the next level.

Technological developments open up new avenues for design, and BIM is no exception. The 3D function enables complex shapes and the software’s ability to handle sophisticated calculations will allow structural engineers to push the boundaries with ever more daring designs.

2. The ‘I’ is more important than the ‘B’.
Pretty pictures might impress, but it is as an information management tool that BIM software really shines. One reason for the slow take-up of BIM in the civil engineering sector is that the BIM community has so far focused on ‘building’ to the detriment of ‘information’.

3. The colour of BIM is green.

Using it properly will cut project time and thereby energy use, as well as cost. BIM will reduce the waste of materials during construction and building management and eventually assist in sustainable demolition. Energy modelling can also minimize energy use over a building’s life.

4. BIM will destabilise the construction industry.

Unlike CAD, which computerized a single activity while leaving macro processes largely intact, BIM will change everything. There’s no point attempting to implement BIM software throughout the industry with the expectation that things won’t change. They will.

5. Governments must take the lead.

The benefits of working the BIM way only come with close collaboration. If one member of a project team is using BIM while the others continue doing things the old way, there will be limited benefit. To make the investment worthwhile, someone has to break the stalemate. That someone is often the government.

6. Companies must work together as one.

Firms and disciplines working separately, interacting only through the exchange of construction documents just won’t do any more. BIM both enables and requires tighter integration.

7. Both the software and the professionals must work together.

But simply working together isn’t enough – habits and routines have to be aligned in order to make cooperation natural. The software will need to be developed to allow seamless integration, and so will the attitudes of professionals.

8. New contracts will emerge.

Both digitalisation and close collaboration challenge the prevailing system of intellectual ownership. There are two possible development routes. One is increased specialisation where ownership resides with modelling specialists. The other is consolidation into giant firms, as companies work increasingly closely, solving ownership issues.

9. The software platform is at a crossroads.

The fight for supremacy in the software world rages on. Depending on the outcome of current power struggles, the digital environment in the new construction industry will conform to one of three types: open standard, closed and proprietary standard, or no/several standards.

10. BIM will become the DNA of future construction.

When the system is sufficiently streamlined we can start to focus on using it. Once the basic information infrastructure is in place and we’ve learned to work with it, numerous technologies, in use or in the pipeline, can be brought in.
Construction Operations Building Information Exchange

The COBie approach is to enter the data as it is created during design, construction, and commissioning process. Designers provide floor, space, and equipment layouts. Contractors provide make, model, and serial numbers of installed equipment. The main idea behind it is that upon project completion you can hand over a COBie Data Spreadsheet of all the buildings assets in a data rich Format. For FM Purposes?

For a Nivens DTM this mean utilising a Revit template that james has been working on. Its still under testing but is working!

However there has been some debate of the future of COBIE and its useful ness to the end user.

BIM as a process in the practice will not work unless there is complete buy in from the Senior management downwards
If you dont embrace BIM you will NOT work a publicly procured projects from 2016
and i would expect it be before this date.
Starting to use Revit is tiny aspect of a BIM based project!
- 48 Hour Design competition

- Its on an international Platform

- It will you use your skills on a live significant project

- Complete Design Freedom

- Teach you valuable skills of working under extreme pressure

- Chance of winning an internationally recognised award.

The Challenge
On October 28th - Noon AEDT, a specially chosen and internationally known site in Sydney will be announced, along with a brief for a significant multi-use development. All the key information will be published in interoperable formats. Teams will be free to exploit any interoperable technology and to add updates to a public collaboration site and all visitors will be free to comment. Teams will be asked to develop an outline proposal by midday on the Wednesday. The event will conclude at midday on Wednesday and will be followed by presentations to the press and a final jury will make a number of awards.
