BIM Execution Plan

SECTION A: BUILDING INFORMATION MODELING PROJECT EXECUTION PLAN OVERVIEW
To successfully implement Building Information Modeling (BIM) on a project, Western Michigan University has developed this detailed BIM Execution and Standards Guide. This guide defines uses for BIM on the project (e.g. design authoring, cost estimating, and design and construction coordination), along with a detailed design of the process for executing BIM throughout the project lifecycle. 1. Intent These guidelines are intended to act as standards for building information model development from schematic design to project closeout. Western Michigan University has adopted building information modeling as a tool for project documentation and development, as-built record documentation, and facility management. Western Michigan University has made every attempt to provide this standard as complete as possible. However, if there are items not covered in this guide, please contact a Western Michigan University project manager for guidance. Western Michigan University assumes no responsibility for Revit models of existing buildings provided by WMU for renovations and additions. 2. Building Information Modeling (BIM) BIM is the process that contains all physical features of the project. Building Information Models shall be created that include all geometry, physical characteristics, and product data needed to describe the design and construction work. All drawings and schedules required for assessment, review, bidding, and construction shall be extractions from the model. The term “model” is used in these guidelines as a digital representation of building elements and data used to design, construct, and lifecycle manage a building. 3. Model Ownership Western Michigan University will retain ownership of all documentation throughout the building information modeling process including the Autodesk® Revit® Architecture central file, MEP, and Structure Models (.rvt files), Navisworks® files, and all other associated document types. Models will be made available to key stakeholders to be used to visualize, coordinate, schedule, and analyze design intent and constructability throughout the project including closeout. 4. External Model Conflict and Clash Detection Building Information Models will be imported into external software that checks each model discipline (architectural, MEP, and structural) for hard clashes (clashes between elements) and soft clashes (clashes between elements and required clearances) Conflict and clash detection allows the project team to verify clearance, analyze conflicts/clashes, deliver quality documentation, and coordinate between disciplines to reduce RFI and Change Order submissions. 5. Applicability Building Information Modeling capability will be: Required on all new construction projects and major additions contracted by Western Michigan University on or after the issue of this document. Encouraged but not required on all other projects including renovations to existing facilities. 6. Lifecycle Management Western Michigan University intends to make final deliverable building information models available for integration into a Lifecycle Management solution. In order to meet that objective, it is important that the guidelines presented in this document be followed. If there is any question as to the intent of this document, please contact a Western Michigan University official. 2 Western Michigan University | October 2011
