BIM Guide 5 – BIM Project Guide
The BIM Guide 5 BIM Project Guide is a document that is published by the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) to promote and support the use of BIM in the Malaysian construction industry. Accordingly, the BIM Guide 5 BIM Project Guide is a continuation from the series of BIM guide books, namely BIM Guide 1- Awareness, BIM Guide 2- Readiness, BIM Guide 3- Adoption, and BIM Guide 4- BIM Execution Plan. More importantly, this guide draws on the best BIM practices implemented by a number of countries and local organisations around the world. The uptake and understanding of BIM within Malaysian construction industry is expected to increase since the release of the previous series of BIM guidebooks. CIDB has worked together with public agencies alliance including Public Work Department (JKR), professional bodies, and private organisations in developing this guide that focuses on the consistent approach of BIM utilisation in a project. The BIM Guide 5 BIM Project Guide is developed substantially with BS EN ISO 19650 with the aim of outlining the processes of BIM implementation in a construction project. Overall, it is hoped that the BIM Guide 5 – BIM Project Guide is able to assist construction industry players in implementing BIM and help to unlock BIM benefits for a wider Malaysian construction industry.
The BIM Guide 5 BIM Project Guide aims to outline the processes of BIM implementation in construction project. This guide is intended to be used to:
– promote the use of BIM throughout the life-cycle
– creates a common BIM understanding for the construction industry
– define BIM deliverables in construction project
– clarifies the process for implementing BIM in construction project
– define roles and responsibilities of project members.
This guide can be used as reference by project teams to implement BIM on a project when practical. It contains knowledge and practical experience of implementing BIM in the construction project. The guide is organised in several section consisting of:
– Section 1: Introduction
– Section 2: BIM basics in project
– Section 3: BIM workflow
– Section 4: BIM modelling and documentation practice.
This guide is developed substantially with BS EN ISO 19650 with the aim of outlining the processes of BIM implementation in a construction project. It also aligns with the PAS 1192 standards, which formed the basis of the UKs approach to BIM, but which are now being superseded as the BS EN ISO19650 series of documents is developed. The evolution of these standards facilitates a consistent approach to information management at both national and international level.
