Project Execution Planning for Building Information Modeling

Research purpose

To develop and disseminate a method by which building project teams can create a Building Information Modeling (BIM) Execution Plan in the early stages of a building project. Many owners and project teams are currently struggling with defining the appropriate level of modeling to perform on a

construction project, based on the current state of practice and their future information needs. The proposed Guide, developed primarily for facility owners and other early project participants, will focus on the decisions required to define the scope of BIM implementation on the project; identify process impacts of using BIM; define the team characteristics needed to achieve the modeling, and quantify the value proposition for the appropriate level of BIM modeling at the various stages in the project lifecycle.
