BIM4VALUE Frame of reference
Seven building sector players have joined forces to offer a frame of reference based on the uses of digital modelling from the programming stage to operation and maintenance. The goal is to provide users and investors alike with improved building use and operational quality via a tool designed to serve the performance of building and infrastructure.
Paris, 28 March 2019 – Many projects have been designed and modelled using Building Information Modeling (BIM). Some of these include the Court of Paris, the Paoli-Calmettes Institute of Marseille, the Thalès Campus in Vélizy, and the Paris-La-Défense infrastructure. Based on feedback, BIM has become the key collaborative working environment aimed at optimising the performance of buildings and infrastructure, from the programming stage to operation and maintenance. However, questions still remain: what does designing with BIM involve? How can we foster collaboration between stakeholders around the BIM? What is the best way to create value through BIM operation? How can we consult a company for a project carried out using BIM?
BIM4VALUE, a frame of reference for BIM practices, has been created to answer these questions and to clearly set out the uses of digital modelling and the values expected by the project owner.
The professional organisations – CINOV, CNOA, EGF.BTP, FEDENE, FSIF, SBA and SyntecIngénierie – have joined forces to prepare the first frame of reference to meet the expectations of the entire building sector. Almost fifty experts from seven organisations came together to create a tool that is freely available to all professionals with the goal of providing them with support over the entire lifecycle of the project for enhanced control and integration of the BIM.
