Valery Leonov: 2 more BIM projects to be considered in 2016
Two projects created with the use of BIM-tech will be considered this year, said the Chairman of Moskomekspertiza Valery Leonov.
“Since the beginning of the year two projects have already passed the expert examination. In 2015, we examined seven projects in BIM format,” said Vladimir Leonov. According to him, using BIM technologies has has some points for further decisions.
“As for now there is no national BIM-standard, there are no requirements applicable to federal regulatory documents, there are no official rules of submitting documents, designed using BIM tech. All this creates certain temporary difficulties,” said Vladimir Leonov AGN in his interview with the news agency “Moscow”.
As a reminder, Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a facility. A BIM is a shared knowledge resource for information about a facility forming a reliable basis for decisions during its life-cycle; defined as existing from earliest conception to demolition.
For the professionals involved in a project, BIM enables a virtual information model to be handed from the design team (architects, landscape architects, surveyors, civil, structural and building services engineers, etc.) to the main contractor and subcontractors and then on to the owner/operator; each professional adds discipline-specific data to the single shared model. This reduces information losses that traditionally occurred when a new team takes ‘ownership’ of the project, and provides more extensive information to owners of complex structures.
