Building and Construction Procurement Guide: Project Team Integration and Building Information Modelling (BIM) answers Procuring BIM - what difference will it make to project outcomes? What impact will it make on productivity, profitability - and how well the team works together?
The Strategic Forum is acutely aware of the need for optimal delivery outcomes for projects that see all participants eliminate waste, and maximise end user benefits.
The purpose of this Guide is to provide asset owners and project procurers with an outline of potential procurement practices, processes and steps which might be followed in developing effective procurement strategies for implementation of Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Project Team Integration (PTI) on specific projects within the built environment.
This Guide is the latest in a series by the Strategic Forum as it aims to improve outcomes for end users and all participants of the building and construction process, by increasing the level of collaboration. It promotes a consistent national approach, by examining the relevant tools, standards, strategies and processes used to identify a model that best suits project delivery, while realising the potential of Project Team Integration and Building Information Modelling.
Highlights of the Guide are:
- Summaries of considerations using PTI and BIM within procurement.
- Instances where PTI and BIM can be considered in adopting various delivery models.
- Examples of decisions that demonstrate how PTI and BIM can be applied in practice for public and private sector project sponsors in the building and construction industry; and
- Supplementary practical resource tools including national and international reference materials.
