BIM is still a hot topic and the concept of ‘BIM Levels’ has become the accepted definition of what criteria are required to be deemed BIM-compliant, by seeing the adoption process as the necessary steps in a journey that has taken the industry from the drawing board to the computer and, ultimately, into the digital age.

The government has recognised that the process of moving the construction industry to ‘full’ collaborative working must be progressive, with distinct and recognisable milestones being defined within that process, in the form of ‘levels’. These have been defined within a range from 0 to 3.

Since 2011, the construction industry has been running towards the goals of adopting BIM Level 2. Mandated by the UK Government, BIM Level 2 is often seen as a first stride on our journey to digital processes. Except it isn’t. To succeed at adopting digital processes, an organisation needs to walk before it can run: the first step needs to be the adoption of BIM Level 1. Contained within BS1192, BIM Level 1 is outlined as the current best practice when working collaboratively. Typically comprises a mixture of 3D CAD for concept work, and 2D for drafting of statutory approval documentation and Production Information. Electronic sharing of data is carried out from a common data environment (CDE), often managed by the contractor. The standard covers how to share and publish information in a collaborative environment, as well as how to structure file names to quickly locate project information amongst thousands of files.

This webinar provides delegates with all the information needed to adopt BIM Level 1 by introducing BS 1192, explaining the key elements of the Standard, the evidence available, showing how its application can benefit projects, and how adopting BIM Level 1 supports an organisation’s journey to achieving BIM Level 2.
