Developing a comprehensive BIM brief before a project begins is the key to harnessing BIM’s power to transform how we build and maintain assets. Thinking why, what and how will help get the necessary information.
BUILDING INFORMATION MODELLING (BIM) promises to reduce risk, deliver efficiencies and add value in the way we design, construct and operate our built assets. However, this Holy Grail is often not realised due to ambiguous requirements that result in inconsistencies and misaligned expectations. To mitigate these risks and realise the true value of BIM, start with the end goal in mind.
