La reglementation en clair 17 020 acoustique existant. Classification - Technical Support - NBS BIM Toolkit. Uniclass 2015 is a unified classification for the UK industry covering all construction sectors.

Classification - Technical Support - NBS BIM Toolkit

It contains consistent tables classifying items of all scale from a facility such as a railway down through to products such as a CCTV camera in a railway station. Sarah Delany, Technical Author and Head of Classification at NBS, introduces Uniclass 2015 in this article. View and download the classification tables | Latest updates. As part of the BIM Toolkit project, NBS are working on the next version of the Uniclass classification scheme. Originally released in 1997, Uniclass allows project information to be structured to a recognised standard. As a key deliverable of the BIM Toolkit project, NBS have worked with experts from across the industry to develop the new classification system – Uniclass 2015. A unified classification system for the construction industry. What we’re doing and why What it’s for The tables For detailed design and construction, the main starting point are Entities.

PROJECT BIM EXECUTION PLAN TEMPLATE. It is a requirement of most Building Information Modelling-based projects to prepare a BIM Execution Plan (BEP for short).


PAS1192-2:2013 defines a BEP as a "plan prepared by the suppliers to explain how the information modelling aspects of a project will be carried out". The Evolve template presents the strategy for BIM delivery on a project in a simple-to-use spreadsheet format, addressing the key aspects of production, exchange and verification., including: Rather than being a proforma of requirements, or having to copy large sections of wordy PDFs from the internet, Evolve's template is downloadable free of charge and can be edited as required for your project's needs. PAS 1192-2 - Designing Buildings Wiki. Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) are fast-track standards, specifications, codes of practice or guidelines developed by sponsoring organisations to meet an immediate market need following guidelines set out by BSI (British Standards Institution).

Within 2 years they are reviewed to assess whether they should be revised, withdrawn, or become formal British Standards or international standards. PAS 1192-2:2013 is the Specification for information management for the capital/delivery phase of construction projects using building information modelling. It is sponsored by the Construction Industry Council (CIC) and published by The British Standards Institution. It came into effect on 28 February 2013. It was commissioned by CIC as part of its response to the UK Government Construction Strategy which stated that the '...Government requires fully collaborative 3D BIM (with all project and asset information, documentation and data being electronic) as a minimum by 2016'. PAS1192:3 Specification for information management. PAS1192:3 Specification for information management for the operational phase of assets using building information modelling What is it?

PAS1192:3 Specification for information management

A strategic objective has been set to achieve Level 2 (see diagram below) building information modelling (BIM) on all public sector asset procurement, with equal applicability to private sector building, infrastructure, refurbishment and new build projects. Building Commissioning: Definition. The following is from the California Commissioning Collaborative* The term commissioning comes from shipbuilding.

Building Commissioning: Definition

A commissioned ship is one deemed ready for service. Before being awarded this title, however, a ship must pass several milestones. Equipment is installed and tested, problems are identified and corrected, and the prospective crew is extensively trained. A commissioned ship is one whose materials, systems, and staff have successfully completed a thorough quality assurance process.

Building commissioning takes the same approach to new buildings. Retrocommissioning is the application of the commissioning process to existing buildings. Recommissioning is another type of commissioning that occurs when a building that has already been commissioned undergoes another commissioning process. . * Haasl, T., and K. Open Standards 101. We are in effect creating a new digital language which will allow advanced information technology to openly and freely exchange structured information throughout the lifecycle to improve construction, operation and portfolio management of the built environment.

Open Standards 101

Process Standard – Information Delivery Manual (IDM) BuildingSMART processes (IDMs) capture (and progressively integrate) business process whilst at the same time providing detailed specifications of the information that a user fulfilling a particular role would need to provide at a particular point within a project. To further support the user information exchange requirements specification, IDMs also propose a set of modular model functions that can be reused in the development of support for further user requirements.

Data Standard – Industry Foundation Class (IFC) BIM Guides. | Print | A list of BIM guides from around the world.

BIM Guides

They are categorised into 3 groups: General: Provide background information or planning guidance on BIM and its application to construction projects.Project oriented: Intended to be used as a binding document by project stakeholders to define their expectations and requirements associated with implementing BIM on a project.Topic specific: Covers a specific aspect of implementing BIM. Generally not comprehensive enough to be used as project guidelines but, because of its detailed nature, could be referenced as a standard by them. These categories are provided as an indication only - the interrelated nature of BIM and IPD means many of the guides contain elements of each. A unified standard for the Architectural, Engineering and Construction industry in the UK.
