Day 1 - Introduction to BIM and Level 2 BIM

Monday, 29 February 2016 - Fully booked 

Building information modelling has the potential to deliver significant benefits to construction projects and to the operation and maintenance of buildings and infrastructure. These benefits come from managing project and asset information in a more systematic and holistic way, which reduces waste and streamlines workflows.

Level 2 BIM is the standard that is being adopted by the UK Government for its centrally procured projects, and many other types of project client and asset owner/operator are following suit.

This 1-day training course has been designed to help all those involved with delivering projects or managing assets understand what BIM is and get an introduction to the standards and tools that support Level 2 BIM. It also provides an introduction to the follow-on Masterclasses for PAS 1192-2, PAS 1192-3 and BS 1192-4.

Topics to be covered during the course

      Session 1: The philosophy of BIM

  • The importance of a collaborative approach
  • BIM is much more than just 3d models
  • BIM is about objects
  • BIM needs a different approach to development of design.

      Session 2: The journey to Level 2 BIM 

  • The levels of BIM maturity
  • The definition of Level 2 BIM  – the standards and tools
  • A view of BIM beyond Level 2

       Session 3: What do clients, asset owners, designers, contractors and suppliers need to do for Level 2 BIM?

  • Responsibilities of different organisations
  • Identifying your key actions and next steps to implement Level 2 BIM 

Who should attend

This course is designed for anyone with responsibility for managing built assets or delivering projects and who wants to use information management at Level 2 BIM to improve cost and operational effectiveness. It is also designed for those in the supply chain who are being asked, or expect to be asked, to apply the  Level 2 BIM standard on the projects they deliver or on the assets they maintain.


Why you should attend

This course will help you in the following ways:

  • Understand what BIM and Level 2 BIM really means for you and your organisation
  • Understand the key requirements of the  Level 2 BIM standards
  • Explore the implications of BIM with like-minded professionals and with one of the leading consultants in BIM in the UK who has been involved in the development of  Level 2 BIM standards.

Day 3 - BS 1192-4:2014 Collaborative production of information – Fulfilling employer’s information exchange requirements using COBie – Code of practice

Wednesday, 2 March 2016 - Fully booked 
Monday, 2 March 2016 - Fully booked 

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.

      Morning session

  • The problem of documents vs data
  • Previous attempts to improve handover
  • Continuity

      Session 1: The concept of shared structured information. 

  • Client may know about spaces and equipment  at briefing stage
  • Consultants develop the spatial and physical systems
  • Contractor instantiate the design
  • Commissioning and suppliers provide extra information

      Session 2: How it fits in with the government’s plan for BIM. The building blocks of COBie 

  • The Government hypothesis
  • Criteria and the role of open standards
  • Push and pull strategy
  • Better client,  better owner
  • Business pipeline:  comparability and improvement

Session 3 - Identifying data for COBie

  • The value of COBie to the client/owner and the supply chain.
     - Consistent
     - Checkable
     - Evolving

      Session 4 - Working with COBie

  • Manual or automatic tools ?
  • Relevant information
  • Irrelevant information
  • Product data

      Afternoon focus -  COBie in use

      Session 5 – Strategy and quality.

  • Use of process maps and exchange requirements

      Session 6 - Case study and discussion of owners objectives

  • Review of an example COBie file
  • Strategic objectives and PAS1192
  • How COBie can be tailored to supply owners with personalised outputs for handover; examples
  • Required fields and additional columns

Day 4 - Using BIM to manage assets: Putting PAS 1192-3 into practice

Thursday, 3 March 2016 - Fully booked 

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 Level 2 BIM, and is part of the requirement to use digital information on all projects from 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 understand requirements of PAS 1192-3 and think about how these are put into practice in their own organisations.

     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
  • Practical exercise

     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
  • Practical exercise

      Session 4: The Common Data Environment in asset management

  • The Common Data Environment in PAS 1192-3
  • Bringing information into the Common Data Environment
  • 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 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 Level 2 BIM 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 Level 2 BIM.


Why you should attend

 This course will help you in the following ways:
