FIS has produced a BIM Toolbox, with funding from CITB, to raise awareness among specialist contractors on the processes required to work using BIM.
Integration of commonly understood processes across the delivery team and supply chain is crucial if BIM is to meet its full potential. Until now, most guides have been aimed at architects and tier 1 delivery teams rather than specialist contractors. These organisations may be unaware that existing processes and free-to-use software are sufficient to achieve Level 2 BIM. The FIS Toolbox has been designed to enable a specialist contractor to develop and deliver a BIM implementation plan. It aims to give an understanding of the key process documents that relate to the activities of the sector and a page-by-page explanation of what is required and how to deliver it.
