  • Clearly define client information requirements and deliverables for each phase of the project,particularly for facility management, and document them in the Project BIM Brief prior to issuing

    Requests for Proposals for project team members.

  • One of the key advantages of BIM is the ability to effectively capture data that will be usefulduring the operational phase of the project – take a whole of lifecycle approach.
