Day 1 - PAS 1192-2:2013 Masterclass FULLY BOOKED

Monday 16 November 2015

PAS 1192-2 is a publically available specification (PAS) for information management for the capital/delivery phase of construction projects using building information modelling. It was commissioned by the UK Government’s BIM Task Group and published by the BSI in 2013.

PAS 1192-2 is fast becoming the principal way of managing information throughout the capital/delivery phase of construction projects and will be mandated on all UK Government let contracts from 2016. This BSI Masterclass will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the requirements defined within it, how they may apply to your business and provide a unique opportunity to ask its co-author any questions you may have relating to the document and its contents.

The following topics will be covered during this BSI Masterclass:

  • The concepts and principles behind PAS 1192-2
  • The key terms and definitions defined within PAS 1192-2
  • The relationship of PAS 1192-2 with associated national and industry standards
  • The key elements of the Information Delivery Cycle
  • The management of information within a Common Data Environment
  • The roles and responsibilities associated to PAS 1192-2

Who should attend:

This BSI Masterclass is designed for anyone who is, or will be, required to produce, manage and/or use information effectively throughout the capital/delivery phase of construction projects in accordance with PAS 1192-2:2013, and having read the document, would like to gain a greater understanding of the requirements and the concepts and principles behind them.

Day 2 - Using BIM to manage assets : Putting PAS 1192-3 into practice
 

Tuesday 17 November 2015

Although building information modelling is mainly thought of as a process to improve the delivery of construction projects, there are also big benefits from using BIM as part of the asset management process. Indeed, some would argue that the benefits for asset management are even greater than for project management.

PAS 1192-3:2014 is part of the UK Government definition of BIM Level 2, and is part of the requirement to use digital information on all projects by 2016.

This 1-day training course is presented by the lead author of PAS 1192-3 and has been designed to help all types of asset owners, operators and maintainers put the requirements of PAS 1192-3 into practice.

Topics to be covered during the course

Session 1: The importance of asset management and the role of information management

  • The nature of built assets and the pipeline of new or refurbished assets
  • The scope for improvement in quality and certainty of delivery of projects

Session 2: Setting information requirements for existing assets

  • Deriving information requirements from the asset management strategy and plans
  • Defining events during the asset lifecycle that trigger the information management process
  • Using Organisational Information Requirements and Asset Information Requirements to convey strategic and contractual needs

Session 3: Storing asset information

  • Using the Asset Information Model to store data and information
  • Creating and maintaining the Asset Information Model
  • Linking the information management process to existing enterprise systems such as CAFM, finance or data acquisition systems

Session 4: The Common Data Environment in asset management

  • Enabling collaborative working between client, designers, contractors and asset managers
  • The Common Data Environment, incorporating work-in-progress, shared information, published information and the archive
  • Bringing information into the Common Data Environment
  • The gateways within the Common Data Environment to approve and validate information
  • Exploring the detailed process for accepting asset information from a new-build project

Session 5: Roles and responsibilities during asset information management

  • Responsibilities of the asset owner or operator
  • Responsibilities of the operational supply chain (in-house works teams, outsourced maintenance contractors, surveyors and consultants)

Session 6: Applying the information management process to an existing asset

  • Discussion and key points for implementation.

Who should attend:

This course is designed for anyone with responsibility for managing built assets and who wants to use the opportunity of information management at BIM Level 2 to improve the cost and operational effectiveness of their asset management function. It is also designed for those in the supply chain who are being asked, or expect to be asked, to manage and supply asset information in accordance with BIM Level 2.

Day 3 - Briefing for Design and Construction – BS 8536-1:2015
 

Wednesday 18 November 2015

BS 8536-1:2015 provides detailed guidance and recommendations on the briefing of operational requirements utilising the principles of soft landings, digital plans of work, building information modelling (BIM) and post occupancy evaluation (POE) to provide clients/owners and their project delivery teams with a method to achieve better performance outcomes from their new or refurbished facilities. This one-day workshop offers a unique opportunity for participants to align their organisation’s practices with the Code of Practice. The workshop outlines the key decisions, and their timing, to be addressed by design and construction teams to ensure that clients/owners, operators and facilities managers are provided with greater certainty over required operational outcomes that include environmental, social, security and economic performance. Four practical sessions with feedback are incorporated, together with the opportunity for Q&A throughout the day.

All presentation materials used in the practical sessions, together with BS 8536-1:2015, Briefing for design and construction – Part 1: Code of practice for facilities management (Buildings infrastructure) and related standards, will be provided to participants at the end of the workshop on a USB stick.

By attending and using the Code of Practice you will:

  • Learn how to undertake effective briefing for operational success
  • Achieve greater certainty of performance-related project outcomes
  • Know what to measure in a project to achieve the performance outcomes
  • Control project work stages and decision gates/points 
  • Understand sustainability in a down-to-earth, practical way
  • Get the insights into the detailed recommendations and guidance – the what? and why?

Who should attend?

This masterclass has been designed for building owners, client representatives, designers, construction companies, project managers, subcontractors, operators, operations teams, facility managers and other specialists representing the disciplines and skill-sets engaged in the delivery of a new facility or the refurbishment of one existing.

Day 4 - COBie2 Masterclass
 

Thursday 19 November 2015

COBie is a data schema for holding and transmitting information through to handover to support the client’s ownership and operation of a facility. The format of COBie is that it is a subset of IFC that can be represented in a spreadsheet or in a relational database. One advantage of COBie is that it accommodates any unstructured input and any BIM information into a structured single-entry format. The final COBie can be exported in a variety of output formats or read directly into asset management and facility management.

Increasingly individuals in the construction industry wishing to participate in public projects post will need to be confident and capable with Building Information Modelling. In order to meet this objective, stepping stones have been put in place. One of these stepping stones is the contractual demand for COBie.

The course provides a broad understanding of COBie, key information is presented on how COBie will influence different aspects of your work and an overview of general concepts of COBie that involve all individuals in the life cycle of an asset. Takes a hands-on approach to see how COBie works.
