The Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland (RIAI) has published a new BIM pack for use across the construction industry to support the digitalisation of the AEC sector
RIAI’s new BIM pack is an online resource aimed at architects and architectural technologists as well as clients, industry professionals and educators.
Michael Earley, chair of the RIAI BIM subcommittee, said: “There are challenges ahead for the construction industry and while BIM will not solve all problems, there is opportunity through BIM to reduce risk, improve performance and eliminate costly waste by virtually building and testing design before any activity takes place onsite.”
RIAI CEO Kathryn Meghen said: “Technology has the potential to transform construction in the same way it has transformed other industries. Through the development of the RIAI BIM Pack, the RIAI has created a platform for the construction industry to modernise our business. By moving to a digital process, with standardisation at the core, we can achieve increased efficiency without any loss in quality.”
What is in the BIM Pack?
- The BIM Pack provides a set of comprehensive advice notes and templates for organisations and individuals considering undertaking a project in BIM.
- All documentation has been prepared for compliance with PAS1192 standards published by the British Standards Institute (BSI) and guidance documents by the Construction Industry Council (CIC).
- The documents cover all project stages including briefing, pre-contract submissions, appointment and post-contract documentation leading to handover.
