Standard – What are they good for?

With the release of Queensland digital enablement policy and the Victorian Digital Asset Strategy (VDAS), Australian states and territories are starting to adopt the use of Building Information Modelling. 

Out of the sheer necessity to deliver complex projects, industry has been using BIM for many years, often utilise their own company standards and approaches.  One of the most significant benefits of a BIM-enabled project is there are underlying databases to manage information. Still, when we all work to different standards, this valuable project information model can become fragmented and cumbersome – and the many benefits of using BIM are lost.  

Many clients are now seeking to leverage the information in BIM, for longer-term Asset management purposes. The need to standardise information structures has never been higher, both within a client entity and more broadly across the construction sector.

In this session, Toby will give insight into the challenges faced by clients in regards to :
• The adoption of international standards, such as ISO 19650 and local approaches such as VDAS/QLD Gov.
• How clients can specify the information requirements for BIM, without stifling innovation
• Developing standards for project delivery teams to comply with, aligning capability with data needs
• Information Validation – checking information deliverables align with the standards/needs.
