BIMp1  So you know that your firm needs to move to Building Information Modeling, but how?  Perhaps you read our posts about BIM 101: An Introduction to Building Information Modeling or the BIM Pilot: Getting Started Guide, and now you are wondering how to put this knowledge into use.

The BIM Pilot Deployment Workbook

The intent of the BIM Pilot Deployment Workbook is to provide a framework that architects, engineers, surveyors, civil engineers, contractors, and owners can reference to deploy BIMP2Building Information Modeling (BIM) processes and best practices.
This template can be used to help build a plan for implementing a BIM process. Each section provides guidance and examples to complete this editable template. This document makes suggestions on the roles and responsibilities of each party, the detail and scope of information to be shared, relevant business processes, and supporting software.
The Deployment Workbook will also help you identify project teams, define key processes and dependencies throughout your project, assign roles and responsibilities, and select software solutions that use BIMP4collaborative communication to help reduce your project costs.

Two Deployment Plans

There are two levels to every BIM implementation plan.  The people and the project.  It helps to get the organization methodology on BIM established before bringing in your first project.
