The AEC (UK) BIM Standard has been running for several months now and I realised we aren’t really doing enough to promote its awareness in the UK so here is another plug to help spread the word.
Some large firms are adopting this standard which is great news and we hope more will follow suit. Its not ‘our idea’ of a standard but builds on existing industry principles laid down by CPIC, BS1192, Uniclass etc… Over the next 12 months the intention is to expand the document with comments and feedback from the early adopters. The content creation section of the document still needs expanding and the intention is to develop this as part of the next release.
BIM standards and workflows will always be evolving with the progression of the software, technology and collaboration techniques. BIM is changing the way we work and it is doing so at an incredible pace. We hope the standard will 'evolve' with the developments in technology; so if you have a suggestion for how parts can be improved please contribute by leaving feedback on the AEC(UK) website!
I have also added the PDF to the Revit Factory downloads section for anyone wishing to get their hands on a copy. Alternatively you can download it from the AEC (UK) website.
