A BIM Execution Plan (PEB) is a document that defines how a project will be managed, organized, and executed using BIM methodology.
The BIM Execution Plan is developed by the BIM manager in collaboration with all stakeholders involved in the project, including architects, engineers, contractors, and building owners, and it must align with the project’s objectives.
The BIM Execution Plan describes the procedures and standards for the creation, use, exchange, and management of BIM data throughout the project life cycle. It contains information on the following elements:
Project objectives and requirements: The project objectives, such as quality, cost, time, and performance, are defined, and project requirements are specified.
- BIM methodology: The BIM methodology that will be used on the project is defined. This includes BIM standards and protocols, levels of development (LOD), classification codes, modeling standards, and BIM project management practices.
- Processes and procedures: The processes and procedures for creating, managing, coordinating, and exchanging BIM data are defined. This includes design processes, coordination procedures, quality control processes, validation and verification processes, and change management processes.
- Roles and responsibilities: The roles and responsibilities of each stakeholder involved in the project are defined. This includes the responsibilities of the architect, engineer, contractor, building owner, and all other stakeholders.
- BIM implementation planning: The BIM Execution Plan also describes BIM implementation planning. This includes project stages, timelines, deliverables, and key milestones.
The BIM Execution Plan is an evolving document that can be updated throughout the project to reflect necessary changes or adjustments. It is essential to ensure effective and efficient use of BIM methodology on the project and to ensure that all team members are aligned with the project objectives.
In summary, the BIM Execution Plan regulates and defines the following elements:
- Model contents: WHAT is provided to achieve the objectives?
- Data exchange: HOW is the information transmitted?
- Processes: WHO has what role and responsibility?
Our team has expertise gained since the beginning of BIM for the drafting and evolving monitoring of the PEB, a central element in project management.
Writing and monitoring of the BEP throughout the BIM project
Newis, through the production of the BEP, optimizes the BIM processes throughout the project for the client. This serves as a manual to ensure coordination between service providers, each of whom must adhere to rules for developing multiple models necessary for the project. Therefore, the sharing of models via the coordination model is possible and effective, which is a major asset for the overall project management.
