Part of the Governments drive to meet ecological and economical targets is to introduce a streamline business delivery method for Building & Infrastructure assets that enables information to be structured and created following a process that allows for a unified handover post construction of the data set. This process is known as COBie which stands for Construction Operational Building information exchange.
With the introduction of such initiatives in the public sector where enhanced technology and process change is required to achieve integrated information use we can offer to guide you through the necessary steps in defining an implementation strategy or where an effective BIM execution plan must be developed in order that projects requirements can be managed and objectives achieved.
Practical advice on matters related to the contractual aspects that may arise from such a clients Information lifecycle requirements can be offered depending on your organisations involvement in a project. Vicis can review the use of document such as the AIA-E202 and ConsensusDOCS 301 addendums that can be used in your contract documentation to ensure a clear road map for project engagement responsibilities in regard to methods for information development.
If you are a client in the private sector who invests in major construction and or facility operation you maybe reviewing or already have realised the potential to return high value from your Building assets activities and also how to maximise lifecycle building performance in line with your core business model through the standardising of electronic building data from design to operations. If your organisation is encouraging the adoption of such a method we can work with you to develop open & interoperable information exchange specifications to steer and obtain value from key stakeholders activities.
