March 1, 2020.
Released today, RLB BIM Guidance Protocol Part 3: External Guide for Project Management is part of a suite of documents aimed at clients, designers and project managers. This document accompanies RLB BIM Guidance Protocol Part 1: A Guide for Clients and Designers previously released, which outlines tasks and processes to be undertaken by clients and designers, allowing RLB to extract quantities efficiently from BIM files.
Embracing BIM and supporting the change
Rider Levett Bucknall (RLB) has embraced Building Information Modelling (BIM) and is working within a BIM environment across all of our service areas.
To support this change in our working environment, RLB has developed its own in-house software (ROSS 5D, Pulse, RLB Focus) to interface with BIM files created by the different software used by designers and consultants, to provide better quality services for our clients.
RLB’s dedicated Global Digital Advancement Committee has created Protocol Part 3 to serve as guidance in adopting BIM in project management service delivery. The Protocol sets out what BIM is, the legal obligations, client obligations and the obligations of project managers together with information on how a typical design team uses BIM. It also gives direction on BIM execution plans, handover requirements, RLB’s approach to BIM, 4D programming and a client checklist.
