Technical standards for BIM mostly describe the writing of certain data and information, and are not intended for general users, but rather for authors of software tools and a group of experts in the field. An exception however, is the CSN EN ISO 19650 standards, which describe processes and data handling. The standard serves as a guide for refining procedures so that the data generated meets the expectations of those who needed it. This Application Guide for ISO 19650 has been written and published by the Czech National Standards body CSN.
The set of technical standards CSN EN ISO 19650 is intended for all persons and organizations involved in the whole life cycle of the construction .Historically, it is customary that Czech technical standards are written directly as a guide. In this case, it is necessary to consider that the standards taken over from international participants are not specific guidelines, but principles and rules. Specific implementation and use, setting up your own processes, documents and the forms are up to the user or are subject to further specification at national level. This guide will explain the aspects of how ISO19650 should be applied to projects.
The obligation to use BIM when awarding public contracts for construction projects has not yet been made binding on the contracting authorities by legislation. The BIM Concept implies that from the so-called decisive date (originally 1 January 2022), contracting authorities awarding contracts will have above-limit public works contracts, including contracts for related pre-design and design services the obligation to award such a public contract using the BIM
The methodology in this document focuses mainly on defining the basic procurement processes so that they can be applied to BIM, considering effective cooperation within information models. Thanks to the methodological activities of the ?AS agency, the contracting authority will have a sufficient range of standards at its disposal, and cooperation processes within BIM will thus be built on a unified and standardsied basis .
It is obvious that if contracting authorities want to cooperate regularly and steadily with quality suppliers and enable them to deliver quality, they need to change their approach. When evaluating tenders we need to reduce the pressure on the bid price and give room for quality. In the Czech environment, no universal bid evaluation model has yet been reliably enforced. There are also no bid evaluation standards for specific industries of intellectually demanding services (typically eg IT consulting, software development and delivery). This situation is long-term and has its objective reasons, consisting mainly in the current very strict view of review bodies (whether by the Office, courts or grant providers) on qualitative evaluation, as well as a total lack of methodological support to develop good practice.
In the spirit of other methodological activities of the ?AS agency, this document also builds on the already existing methodological documents. This document explains the methodology of public procurement using BIM, in connection with the evaluation of bids, especially for the evaluation of bids according to a ranking system for construction works and services, which was developed for the State Fund for Transport Infrastructure (SFDI).
This website provides published standards, guidance, useful links and other resources, such as learning outcomes and relevant information to support the digital journey of all organizations towards the implementation of BIM. The aim is to adopt a unified approach to managing information, foster innovative technological solutions and stimulate ongoing knowledge sharing.
CCI is aiming to increase construction productivity through a collaborative digital information infrastructure (CCI classification system) to enable consistent data exchange. Based on international standards and developed for digital processes, CCI covers the whole built environment: buildings, infrastructure and other civil engineering works and throughout the lifecycle – from planning through design, execution, operation, demolition to removal and reuse.
The Government’s BIM Strategy was published in September 2017 to stimulate the public sector and to support the digital transformation and growth of the construction sector. It was prepared by the Ministry of Industry and Trade, working closely with Czech BIM Council experts. Within the Strategy, a key element for reducing costs, cutting waste and avoiding errors is the adoption of the Building Information Management (BIM), which makes the most of digital technologies to provide a consistent flow of information and measurable standards at all stages of the construction life cycle, including asset and facility management.
Digital Czechia is a set of concepts and implementation plans ensuring the preconditions for the long-term prosperity of the Czech Republic in the environment of the ongoing digital revolution. Its content can be defined as “Strategy of coordinated and comprehensive digitization of the Czech Republic 2018+”.
