Brief overviews of some of the key elements of BIM processes were also provided. This chapter now presents a more detailed discussion on these elements, in particular two of the main ‘shrink-wrapped’ documents published by the BIM Task Group: the EIR and PAS 1192:Part 2. The purpose here is not a regurgitation of the materials in these documents but to provide guidance on using these documents, concentrating only on those parts that are most and directly relevant to BIM implementation issues in projects.

In light of this, a GSL was developed. It is a matter of common knowledge that the cost of maintaining and operating a building is considerably more than the capital costs of design and construction of the building. Typically, O&M costs over the lifetime of a building are in excess of 60% of the overall life-cycle costs. Therefore, in order to make savings throughout the life cycle of an asset, there is a need to manage the O&M costs more carefully and ensure that everything possible is being done by the O&M team to optimise these costs.

The reason for this importance is that simply by looking at a visual of a building information model or a CAD 3D (three-dimensional) model, it is virtually impossible to differentiate between them. 10 Differences between CAD and BIM technologies Continuing on the same theme, here are some more pointers to particular differences between CAD and BIM: • CAD provides a ‘dumb’ drawing, a collection of various geometric shapes and components that make up a drawing of a building. e. , for a building. Therefore, it can be used to extract information and reason with it for all imaginable aspects of a building!
