    Construction BIM Plan

    Architectural (Design) Modelling

    Files and Security

    Requirements for 2D CAD


  • BIM is used for all building systems design, development and analysis, including but not limited to architectural, structural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire suppression, etc.
  • During Conceptual Design, Schematic Design and Design Development Phases, BIM technology is used to develop and establish building performance and the basis of design in accordance with the client’s standards. The model is interoperable with analytic tools including, but not limited to, building envelope, orientation, daylighting, energy consumption, Building Management System (BMS), renewable energy strategies, life cycle cost analysis, and spatial requirements.
  • Use BIM authoring software element libraries when creating model objects. Model objects contain parts and components as opposed to simple 3D Geometry (eg. walls, doors, windows, railings, stairs, and furniture, etc.)
  • Model objects contain Industry Foundation Class (IFC) parameters and associated data applicable to building system requirements. These elements support the analytic process including size, material, location, mounting heights, and system information where applicable. As an example, a light fixture may contain several parameters such as energy output requirements, user illumination levels, make, model, manufacturer, and bulb life.
  • The contractor uses model geometry and extract graphical information for generating construction administration documents from the Project BIM (RFIs, Superintendent’s Instructions, Bulletins, Variation Orders, etc.) The contractor records as-built conditions in BIM as part of final delivery to the client.
  • Submittal drawings, calculations and analysis are extracted from the coordinated BIM.
  • Elements, objects and equipment are tagged with Global Unique Identifiers (GUIDs.)
