BIM Execution Plan

What is BIM Execution Plan?

A BIM Execution Plan (BEP) is a comprehensive document that outlines how Building Information Modeling (BIM) will be implemented and managed throughout a construction project. It serves as a roadmap for project stakeholders to ensure consistent and effective BIM utilization. The BEP defines the project-specific standards, processes, and responsibilities related to BIM. Here’s a general outline of what a BIM Execution Plan might include:

Introduction

  • Explanation of the purpose and scope of the BEP.
  • Identification of key stakeholders involved in BIM implementation.
  • Overview of the project and its objectives.

Project Information

  • Project name, location, and description.
  • Project team members and their roles.
  • Project timeline and milestones.

BIM Goals and Objectives

Clear definition of the project’s BIM goals and what you intend to achieve using BIM.

BIM Standards and Guidelines

  • Definition of BIM-related standards, protocols, and guidelines that will be followed throughout the project.
  • Document formats, naming conventions, and data exchange formats.

BIM Modelling Requirements

  • Detailed requirements for BIM models, including LOD (Level of Development/Detail) expectations for different phases of the project.
  • Guidelines for model coordination, accuracy, and level of detail.

Software Tool and Selection

Specification of the software applications and tools that will be used for creating, managing, and exchanging BIM data.

Collaboration and Communication

  • Procedures for effective communication among project team members.
  • Description of how models will be shared, reviewed, and coordinated.

BIM Roles and Responsibilities

  • Identification of the responsibilities of each project stakeholder regarding BIM implementation.
  • Designation of BIM Manager(s) and their roles.

BIM Workflows

Description of how BIM will be integrated into various project workflows, including design, construction, and facilities management.

Data Exchange and Integration

  • Details about how data will be exchanged between different software platforms and stakeholders.
  • Consideration of open standards and interoperability.

Quality Assurance and Quality Control

Procedures for reviewing and validating BIM models for accuracy, completeness, and compliance with standards.

Training and Education

Plans for providing training to project team members who are less familiar with BIM tools and processes.

Project Deliverables

Explanation of the expected BIM deliverables at different project phases, including models, reports, and documentation.

Implementation Schedule

Timelines for different BIM-related tasks and activities throughout the project.

Legal and Contractual Considerations

Addressing legal and contractual aspects related to BIM, such as intellectual property rights, liability, and BIM-related contract clauses.

Appendices

Supporting documents, templates, and resources that provide additional details and guidance.

Remember that the content and structure of a BIM Execution Plan can vary based on the project’s size, complexity, and specific requirements. The BEP is a dynamic document that should be regularly updated and refined as the project progresses and new information becomes available.
