Design management systems. Guide to managing design in construction

Status : Current   Published : December 2013



What is this standard about?

It gives guidance on management of the construction design process, at all levels, for all organizations and for all types of construction projects.

Who is this standard for? 

  • Architects
  • Designers and engineers
  • Design managers
  • Information managers
  • Contractors
  • BIM consultants
  • Government
  • Local authorities
  • Higher educational establishments
  • Construction professional bodies

Why should you use this standard? 

There have been significant advances in CAD and Building Information Modelling (BIM) technology, with BIM Level 2 being mandated for use on all government construction projects since 2016.

New technologies (in particular BIM) make it more important than ever to operate a collaborative design process across the recognized design disciplines and incorporate economic and process considerations. This also increases the need for greater rigor in the management of that process and for the application of appropriate measures and techniques. 

The guidelines outlined in BS 7000-4 relate to collaborative working, new technologies, construction procurement and changed roles and responsibilities in the construction industry. They should help bring organizations greater efficiencies and improved ways of working.

What’s changed since the last update?

  • BS 7000-4 has been revised by industry experts to align with developments in the BIM world and best practice in the construction industry
  • It now provides principles and a common reference for company and project protocols, which can also be used in reverse to check that the bases have been covered
  • By following the new protocols and principles outlined in the guide, the design management process should be more efficient and there will be less wastage of time and effort
