The UK Learning Outcomes Framework is a free resource to support the development of training content for BIM aligned with current standards. Based upon the BIM Academic Forum’s ‘Learning Outcomes Framework’ (2012), this completely refreshed schedule, updated for the BS EN ISO 19650 series, is the result of collaboration between academics, UK construction industry education professionals and the UK BIM Framework member organisations, the British Standards Institute (BSI), the Centre for Digital Built Britain (CDBB), and the UK BIM Alliance (UKBIMA).
The learning outcomes resource includes:
➢ Why information management using BIM is required, and its strategic context in the UK
➢ The implications and value of information management using BIM for organisations
➢ How information requirements are identified and communicated
➢ How information is shared between organisations
➢ Understanding the legal and security implications of the UK BIM Framework and its interfaces with other important processes such as health and safety management.
UK BIM Framework Learning Outcomes is aligned with buildingSMART UK Chapter’s Professional Certification (PCERT)1.
The BIM Acceleration Committee (BAC) is the driving force behind BIMinNZ. They are a nationwide alliance of industry and government, established in Feb 2014 to coordinate efforts to increase the use of BIM in New Zealand. The BAC say that there is no better way to understand the benefits of BIM then to see how it has impacted real projects in the country. This site includes a series of case studies demonstrating the costs, benefits and risk management benefits of using BIM.
There are 13 case studies currently outlined on the website covering a wide range of projects, including a wastewater treatment plant, a gym, residential flats, bespoke university buildings, etc.
The BIM Acceleration Committee (BAC) is the driving force behind BIMinNZ. They are a nationwide alliance of industry and government, established in Feb 2014 to coordinate efforts to increase the use of BIM in New Zealand. An important enabler of BIM adoption is to ensure that construction professionals of today remain current with the changing ways of delivering great value to clients, whilst at the same time increasing the range of digital tools available. This range of video training resources which the BAC has made freely available helps industry to grow capability & capacity related to BIM.
As part of the BIMinNZ initiative for industry training the successful BIM101: An insight Seminar series have been created and presented by Industry volunteers. There are Seven Modules, and these videos follow on from the successful BIM101 training booklet which can be downloaded on the BIM Industry Training page.
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.
Making the transition to working with BIM will greatly benefit an organization. A successful BIM implementation will make the exchange of digital information more efficient. This, in turn, will contribute to minimizing failure costs, minimizing loss of information and clarifying workflows and schedules. Implementing BIM will have an impact on an organization, and investments (in the IT department and in education) will have to be made and the way the company and its employees work (together) will change. These changes require extra effort from staff, managing this transition properly is the key to success. This leaflet lays out a series of steps that will help you manage this process.
The global Industrial Revolution 4.0 (IR4.0) calls for Malaysian Construction Industry to transform their current approaches and practices in order to contribute significantly to the nations economic prosperity. IR4.0 will transform the Malaysian Construction Industry from intensive labour force-based industry to the use of automation and mechanisation to improve productivity and efficiency. The process involves optimising the conventional construction process towards Construction 4.0 through the application of advanced technologies. The introduction of BIM has helped transform the conventional construction process into an innovative delivery model. BIM requires specific legal and contractual requirements. In Malaysia, an increasing number of projects have started to use BIM at various levels since early 2000, however, contractual arrangements still remain conventional. To meet BIM requirement, the legal and contract terms should consider to be extended to digital construction production processes (model, data and information).
This document highlights the Legal & Contractual implications of BIM encountered by the Malaysian construction industry. Therefore, suggestions for improvement to accommodate Construction 4.0 are proposed. This document is designed to aid the stakeholders to embrace Construction 4.0 by addressing the challenges and proposing strategic outcomes. It should be read as the motivation to reform the Malaysian industry, thrusting the industry into Construction 4.0. This document provides the framework by categorising the case for change, where it currently is, where it wants to be and how it gets there? Leveraging on the legal and contractual issues of BIM implementation, this document suggests appropriate and specific action plans to drive the Malaysia Construction Industry productivity and efficiency towards Construction 4.0.
This BIM Guide, published by myBIM is formulated as a fundamental approach to educate construction players for the BIM adoption in Malaysia. The Guide enables construction industry players to improve productivity and efficiency of the construction process by adopting higher usage of modern technology. This is in line with the Construction Industry Transformation Programme (CITP) which aims to raise productivity level across the Malaysian construction industry. This BIM Guide provides directive, references and process guidelines to the construction players at both organisational and project level and has been published in three booklets. This guide forms as the final part 3, BIM Implementation. Part 1 and 2 look cover the topics of BIM Awareness and BIM Readiness.
This guide is booklet 3 of the suite of 3 published and aims to assist readers in identifying the factors to consider when adopting BIM. This booklet will explain BIM project requirement, roles and responsibilities, infrastructure needs, deliverables and execution plan. Understanding the basic and fundamental of BIM will assist readers to know HOW BIM can be adopted in their organisations/projects. This booklet will explain the decision making process prior to BIM adoption.
For further understanding and clarification of the BIM adoption processes, it is advisable for the construction players to acquire skills and knowledge by attending the myBIM BIM Roadshow, BIM training programs provided by the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) and refer to Jabatan Kerja Rayas (JKR) BIM Guideline.
