The policy of BIM Iceland is to implement the use of harmonised information models in the preparation, design, construction and operation of public structures in Iceland in order to increase the quality and accuracy of information about the structure, and thereby achieve lower construction and operating costs. It’s goal is that it will be standard to use BIM in the construction of all major public structures in Iceland.
The website has a range of articles/news releases and documents:
– CCI system for classification and identification of building components,
– IFC guidelines,
– MOLIO quantification rules
The board considered it important that there was a generally accessible publication in Icelandic on the BIM methodology, and therefore it was decided to have a German book translated on this subject. It gives an insight into the methodology and shows how the information model is structures in different applications. The book can be accessed via this website.
FSRE (Framkvæmdasýslan Ríkiseignir) is the Government Property Agency, looking after assets, construction and facilities for government services in Iceland. In September of 2021 FSRE came into being as a result of a merger between , Framkvæmdasýsla ríkisins Government Construction Contracting Agency (FSR) and Ríkiseignir – The Government Property Agency (RE). The orgisation focuses on the achievement of multiple benefits which can be gained with a strong integrated organization and a centralized approach, these include:
– Increased efficiency in Government operations
– Added value for Users
– Financial benefits for the Treasury
– FSRE to become a leader in the Icelandic Construction industry
Implementation of BIM in FSR projects, success and benefits for designers is a document published to study and reflect on the BIM successes in Iceland. When introducing a new methodology, there are many things to keep in mind. There are many stakeholders in construction, and they are connected to many dimensions of the economy. This study is carried out with the aim of shedding light on the experience gained by the designers who have worked according to the BIM methodology in the design of FSRE projects. That knowledge will continue to be used, in the next steps of implementation, i.e. practical implementation. Today, FSRE is beginning to make demands on contractors to work according to the BIM methodology. FSRE has set an example and guided designers in implementing BIM in planning, so it is very important to look carefully at which aspects benefited the designers and which did not. It is also important to get an overview of how designers work in the BIM environment and whether FSRE’s policy is to implement BIM in its projects, whether the main driving force in the implementation of BIM or whether it is involved in other aspects
