During the course of a design project, do you find yourself asking any of these questions:

  • Why did Consultant X start using that version of Revit?
  • When are we supposed to send the model to the engineer?
  • What phases did the architect say they wanted to use again?
  • What’s the LOD on this column supposed to be?

If you find yourself consistently asking these or similar questions, you very well might need a BIM Execution Plan, or you might need a better one.

The purpose of a BIM Execution Plan (sometimes called a BIM Project Execution Plan) is to get all parties on the same page when it comes to the why, when, and how of a project’s Building Information Models. Items like software versions, responsible personnel, LOD, delivery timeline, and model expectations are all covered… as long as you have a robust BIM Execution Plan.

If your projects don’t start with a BEP, it’s time to get one. A properly created and developed BIM Execution Plan can answer a slew of questions on your project before you even knew they were going to be questions.
