As the Irish Government introduces Building Information Modelling (BIM) requirements into the Capital Works Management Framework (CWMF) in 2024, design teams, construction companies and contractors are preparing to incorporate digital delivery requirements as part of the overall government strategy to digitalise the construction sector by 2030.
BIM is a collaborative process that manages project/asset information throughout its life cycle, utilising digital technologies for efficient design, construction, and maintenance.
The shift in requirements encompasses various aspects, including the adoption of BIM processes, the use of international information management standards (ISO 19650) and the appointment of information managers to oversee implementation.
ISO 19650 is a series of standards that provide a framework for managing information throughout the life cycle of a built asset using BIM. By adopting ISO 19650, organisations can ensure timely access to accurate information, through well-defined information requirements, and greater coordination following a structured information management process.
Leveraging extensive BIM expertise and industry knowledge, BRE Academy provides BIM and information management training covering ISO 19650. This enables forward-thinking individuals and organisations at all stages of their adoption of the standards to address skill gaps.
Upskilling allows professionals to contribute to projects aligned with international standards and supports a consistent approach to information management. Built environment professionals can gain an essential overview of information management using BIM by undertaking ISO 19650 1&2 Project Delivery training, the first step towards attaining BRE’s BIM certification for individuals, or learn the fundamentals of BIM through BRE Academy’s BIM Foundations course.
