Collaborative Multidisciplinary BIM Postgraduate Project

18 Oct 2018
BIM Workshops
BIM Village
The participants in this project, from Architecture, Architectural Technology, Construction Management, Quantity Surveying, and Building, Electrical, Mechanical and Structural Engineering backgrounds with between 2 and 25 years of experience, are engaged in a part-time Postgraduate Diploma in Collaborative BIM. Prior to undertaking this project, students had gained significant experience of discipline-specific BIM technologies, model federation, cross-disciplinary understanding and aligned areas such as Dynamo or Lean & BIM. All students had also gained an in depth knowledge of BIM processes and workflows, focussing mainly on PAS1192 standards, but also covering ISO standards, Government Soft Landings, and the CIC BIM Protocol. Multidisciplinary teams of 4-5 students were formed and provided with a very detailed Employers Information Requirement for a new and retrofit University campus project. Each team comprised a different mix of disciplines thus resulting in the creation of different BEPs, utilising the specialist knowledge available within each team. The teams interfaced with client representatives in the form of a BIM Information manager, an architect, and a construction manager and pulled expertise from within their peer group, the full DIT staff and external specialists to also address issues of sustainability, incorporation of Lean Principles, and adoption of an agile project management methodology.
