BIM role definitions

BIM outlines a number of different roles required to support a project but it should be noted that they do not include titles such as BIM Manager or BIM Controller; the key point to remember here is that they are roles and not titles. They can also apply to multiple people if required if, for example, there are personnel changes.
 
As a leader in BIM, Wienerberger believes that the most important aspects to consider regarding BIM role definitions is that all individuals are trained, competent and have the correct authority to carry out the role. There is absolutely no point in a junior manager being a PIM if he or she will be railroaded by an MD, creating the potential for inaccuracies to creep in to a project.
