4.2 – Points of reference

The spatial coordination (coordinates) of the master BIM file is set at the beginning of the project. Once established, spatial coordinates should only be changed by mutual consent of the team and the Client’s Project Manager, with the matter recorded in the meeting minutes and the BMP. Once the design coordinate system is agreed upon, any model(s)… read more »

4.3 – Design cost planning

Use agreed specialised model-based applications. Define the classification system for model elements that will apply for cost management and reporting. Define the scope of use, eg. Quantity take-off and costing only. 5D BIM – Costing data linked to 4D BIM, ie. a model linked to time or scheduling data. Use for generating cash flow reports,… read more »

4.6 – Level of Development (LOD)

Introduction All practitioners who use Building Information Modelling tools and workflows in their daily practice must have already faced the ‘information exchange dilemma’. That is, to effectively deliver a project, it is first essential to define what information is needed, from whom, and at what level of detail. The Level of Development (LOD) Specification is a reference… read more »

4.7 – Requirements for modelling

The method of measurement for floor area adopted for the project is the defining kernel of space counting procedures for the client and form the basis for the Program for Design (PFD.) The method of measurement for floor area is defined before modelling begins. Space information imported from the Architectural Programming Software PFD export is the source for… read more »

4.8 – Industry Foundation Class (IFC)

IFC- standard for  BIM The Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) are an open standard for the exchange of building data models used in building design and construction across different software. They are used to exchange information within a project team and between software applications used in design, construction, procurement, maintenance, and operation. Current IFC Model View… read more »

4.9 – CAD / Drawing standards

General 2D drawing information – for the purposes of assembling a printed set of plans – is derived from the BIM model(s) to the fullest extent possible. All BIM information is fully parametric so that all applicable information regarding fixtures and/or elements can be used to generate schedules. Where required by the client, editable text files are attached to… read more »
