Pillar 1: The PAS
Here is an easily understood outline of each pillar, based on Wienerberger’s extensive experience of working with BIM over a number of years.
The 4 PAS1192 documents provide distinct and concise guidance as to how BIM operates and cover the main topics and project lifecycle.
- PAS1192:2 explains the key documents, processes, roles, plain language questions and how BIM works during the CAPEX phase and the delivery of the Project Information Model (PIM)
- PAS1192:3 outlines the move into operational lifecycle and moves the model into the Asset Information Model (AIM)
- PAS1192:4 describes COBie (Construction Operation Building Information Exchange) which is a consistent way of sharing structural data
- PAS1192:5 is currently being written and will outline cyber security guidance notes since BIM exists on a digital platform and has the potential to expose stakeholders to a new threat, cyber crime
Many people break each PAS out as a separate BIM pillar; however since they are all relevant and exist together here at Wienerberger we believe it is useful to combine them to create 1 over-arching pillar.
