Bond Bryan Architects were commissioned to design three schools for Kent County Council. At the same time Bond Bryan were engaged to provide Information Management services in line with the requirements of a "Level 2 BIM" project. 

Following receipt of Kent County Council's Employer's Information Requirements (EIR), Bond Bryan produced a Pre-contract BIM Execution Plan to set out how we as an organisation would deliver our client's requirements. This document was based on the industry standard CPIC templates.

Following appointment, Bond Bryan organised a BIM kick-off meeting with all other members of the team as well as Kent County Council to discuss how the project would be approached collaboratively. The primary outputs of this meeting were a Post contract-award BIM Execution Plan (BEP) as well as a Model Production and Delivery Table (MPDT). The BEP also set out when and how the specific asset information requirements would be delivered.

Design team members also prepared Task Information Delivery Plans (TIDPs) which were combined into a Master Information Delivery Plan (MIDP) by our Information Manager. This set out a clear plan for delivering information upto Stage 3 when contractors would be appointed for each scheme.

Our Information Manager supported the members of the team to deliver information in line with COBie (BS 1192-4:2014), a standard schema for data to handover for Facilities Management. Models were exchanged using the international open format, IFC (ISO 16739:2013). The models were checked and reviewed by our team using Solibri Model Checker and an output created for each scheme at the end of RIBA Stage 3 for handover to each Main Contractor.

 

As part of a compliant BS 1192:2007 and PAS 1192-2:2013 approach we were required to set up a Common Data Environment (CDE) for the project. This central repository allowed all information to be shared in a single location for all three projects using a web accessible portal. As some information was common to all three projects, a fourth account was created to ensure that information only needed to be uploaded in one location.

Access to the CDE was granted to those needing access to the portal and this was fully documented in the Post contract-award BIM Execution Plan (BEP). Additionally Bond Bryan provided a simple guide for users needing access to make the use of this as simple as possible.

One unique way this project was approached was to not use a folder structure within the CDE. Searching for information was by meta data allowing data to be filtered using any of the BS 1192:2007 naming, revisions or suitability codes.

Information Management reports and regular communication with all members of the team helped to deliver the information requirements upto the end of RIBA Stage 3. Once contractors were appointed, our Information Manager carried out handover meetings to pass responsibility onto each contractor's own Information Managers.
