How to use the Guide

This Guide has been designed to assist project project team members that have been tasked with the responsibility of planning future building and construction projects. This Guide is not meant to be prescriptive. Its intention is to alert project sponsor personnel to the main items that need to be taken into account, and to steer them through the analysis and decision making process.

Professional judgement is required to work through each of the nominated steps to ensure that all relevant items, together with any project-specific or jurisdictional specific matters not covered by these Guides are appropriately considered. It is therefore essential that procurement strategies are developed by personnel experienced in building and construction procurement and contracting.

The Guide Brief

This Guide is not intended as a one-size-fits-all document defining the use of BIM on all projects. This is not possible. The separate Project BIM Brief or BIM Execution Plan specifies project-specific requirements for using BIM on the project have been defined and before the project formally commences, the clauses of the Project BIM Guide are retained, amended or deleted in order to satisfy the requirements of the project are documented in the Project BIM Brief.

The Project BIM Brief records variations to the Project BIM Guide and must be read in conjunction with it and the Project Contract. (i.e NEC, FIDEC, JBCC.)

The BIM Execution Plan (BEP) is a key element of the Project BIM Guide. This BEP describes (in detail) how the project will be executed, monitored and controlled, in accordance with the Project BIM Brief.

When using the BIM Guide

After the requirements for using BIM on the project have been defined and before the project formally commences, the clauses of the BIM Plan which have to be retained, amended or deleted in order to  satisfy the requirements are documented in the Project BIM Brief.

The Project BIM Brief records variations to the Project BIM Guide and must be read in conjunction with it and the Project Contract. (i.e NEC, FIDEC, JBCC)

A key element of the Project BIM Guide is its requirement for a BIM Execution Plan (BEP). The BEP is used to describe in a much more detailed way how the project will be executed, monitored and controlled with regard to BIM in order to satisfy the requirements recorded in the Project BIM Brief.

The National BIM Guide is a reference document to be read in conjunction with the Project BIM Brief and BIM Execution Plan which  outlines the particular requirements for each project. The Guide can also be used as a planning tool by consultants to clarify the services they propose to  provide when preparing tenders for projects.

The National BIM Guide is to assist clients, consultants and stakeholders to clarify their BIM requirements in a collaborative consistent manner. This will reduce confusion and duplication of effort.
