The project is a research project for the Department for Education (DfE) in the UK, exploring the design of zero-carbon schools. This case study looks at the development of the project from an Information Management perspective. At the heart of this project is the implementation of ISO19650 to define and manage information that will support the brief for the project. This has included using Building Information Models (BIM) to deliver data to support quantification/costing data and carbon analysis. Bond Bryan Digital has been involved in the process from the start (before designers were appointed) to help set out the detailed requirements and are now supporting the team to deliver against these requirements. The project has included the use of four authoring tools which includes Autodesk Revit, Bentley OpenBuildings Designer, Nemetschek Vectorworks and of course...Graphisoft Archicad. The project has presented challenges but also opportunities and this whistle-stop tour of the project demonstrates how an openBIM and ISO19650 approach is critical to how all information authors should approach project delivery, irrespective of the tools they ultimately choose.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand how ISO19650 supports Better Information Management (BIM).
  • Understand how a robust approach to defining data can allow authors to use the tools of their choice.
  • See how a variety of tools (including Archicad) can deliver models for multiple uses to support a client's brief.
