The Royal Institute for British Architects (RIBA) has published a major piece of guidance for architects on BIM (Building Information Modelling).
The BIM Overlay to the RIBA Outline Plan of Work, edited by architect, BIM expert and Vice Chair of the RIBA Practice and Profession Committee, Dale Sinclair of Dyer Architects, provides straightforward guidance to help architects to successfully design and manage construction projects in a BIM environment.
The publication looks at the strong business case for BIM, and sets out how to integrate the approach into practice with an easy-to-follow guide outlining the activities required at each RIBA work stage.
RIBA President Angela Brady said:
'The RIBA is committed to ensuring its members are able to adapt to working in a BIM environment. This new publication cuts though the confusion and anxiety surrounding BIM and offers our members best practice principles to enable them to get the best out of the opportunities it offers for their business.'
