ISO19650 – Part 1 and Part 2: 2018 are out!
Let’s quickly recap on what we already know about Building Information Modelling -BIM- in UK.
The British standards BS 1192:2007+A2:2016 and PAS 1192‑2:2013 are aimed at clarifying standards for achieving a collaborative framework for BIM Level 2 in the UK. Despite the British governmental mandate for its adoption, several challenges have been underpinned in the latest studies. In fact, being developed from the BSI – national standards body of the UK- the usage of aforementioned standards has been limited to the British AEC Industry without its adoption worldwide.
We received good news a month ago when ISO19650 – Part 1 and Part 2: 2018- Organisation and digitisation of information about buildings and civil engineering works, including building information modelling (BIM): Information management using building information modelling – have been published as internationalisation of the UK’s BIM Level 2 standards.
We have been lucky from this side of the world, ISO is based on the British standards. Are you wondering why you should adopt International Standards at this point? Well. National standards are no longer in place, instead, a transition guide has been published in the UK whilst waiting for the National Annex to ISO to be published, later this year.
In the meantime, adjustments regarding current documentation and process are required, as further details about the information delivery and flow have been outlined. In fact, the aim of these ISO standards is to support all the involved parties to achieve their business objectives, with an appropriate framework related to management of information during operational and delivery phase of assets.
These ISO principles are applicable regardless of types and sizes of organisations and regardless of the chosen procurement strategy. Although each stakeholder shall collaborate for delivering sets of required information and developing adequate ISO compliant documents while following a defined flow of information, the appointing parties as Developers, shall evaluate the most effective management of information throughout the project and schedule the appropriate strategy for the long-term asset information management, establishing protocols and requirements for lead appointed party, as architects, and third-appointed parties.
This is what is going on with BIM and ISO. What about us?
DDC Solutions strongly believe that the development of this well-structured ISO19650 – Part 1 and Part 2: 2018 will enable an effective exchange of agreed information in the entire construction supply chain not solely in the UK, but worldwide. This newly defined and structured flow of information will highlight the beneficial application of BIM – Building Information Modelling – as collaborative process between different involved parties and especially to cost and time effective for the project delivery and further asset management.
We updated our resources and improved our knowledge. We keep choosing to be part of this global expansion process.
