dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this consultancy report is to find different methods to streamline the information and communication flow of 'Building Information Modelling' (BIM) from the engineers to the workers on the field. After analysing a series of different sources on BIM such as self-conducted interviews, empirical observations, academic research and many specialised case studies, we developed an implementation roadmap with recommendations for an experimental pilot project setup. A smooth BIM execution on the field, starts with a good BIM preparation. Our endorsements focus on two stages: the preparation stage and the construction stage of a project. Our recommended actions are listed below: - The composition of crystal clear BIM related contracts and agreements: a summary to show the bigger picture, an overview of critical deadlines and decision moments, a map of ownership infographic, an explained BIM workflow for subcontractors and a structured BIM kick-off meeting roadmap. - Tailor-made trainings, coaching and reinforcement sessions for different positions such as project leaders, foremen, workers and subcontractors. The main goal is to establish the BIM mindset into their daily routine. - The instalment of the 'BIM Box' on the field that acts as a hub for discussion and problem-solving. The 'BIM Box' is a mobile desktop computer with 'Solibri', fixed inside a reinforced steel box stationed on a convenient place on the field. - The appointment of a BIM ambassador: a new player within the BIM value chain that operates as the missing link between BIM and the workers on the field. - A full time BIM coordinator on the construction site to facilitate BIM information and communication flow towards stakeholders such as the subcontractors. - The introduction of simple BIM specific task drawings to familiarise construction workers with BIM. - Some smaller recommendations for new 'Solibri' features to help visualise information and to create tailor-made reports. A mission statement formulated by top management is not enough for actual change to happen. BIM needs to have a strong connection with all the employees: willingness and acceptance must also come from the bottom-up as well. We believe our simple and easy to implement recommendations will accelerate the pavement of the highway to a successful digital transformation on the construction site.
