The Building Information Council (Bouw Informatie Raad, or BIR) promotes widespread application of BIM in the Dutch construction and infrastructure industry. BIR is a unique partnership between various stakeholders in the construction industry, where the members represent both their construction industry segment and their own company. They make practical agreements that are in the interests of the entire industry and ensure these are implemented within their own segment. The partnership focuses on implementing BIM to strengthen the quality, continuity and competitive position of the Dutch construction and infrastructure industry. The resources cotained on the website help to accelerate the development and adoption of BIM within the Netherlands.
This two page leaflet has been written to assist communication around the implementation of BIM. The diagrams and illustrations in the leaflet explain the Dutch BIM levels which expand in a wedge shape from Level 0, which is document orientated BIM through to Level 3 which is Integrated lifecycle BIM.
