Organization and digitization of information about
buildings and civil engineering works, including building information modelling (BIM) — Information management using building information modelling —
Concepts and principles
This document outlines the concepts and principles for information management at a stage of maturity
described as “building information modelling (BIM) according to the ISO 19650 series”.
This document provides recommendations for a framework to manage information including
exchanging, recording, versioning and organizing for all actors.
This document is applicable to the whole life cycle of any built asset, including strategic planning,
initial design, engineering, development, documentation and construction, day-to-day operation,
maintenance, refurbishment, repair and end-of-life.
This document can be adapted to assets or projects of any scale and complexity, so as not to hamper the flexibility and versatility that characterize the large range of potential procurement strategies and so as to address the cost of implementing this document.
Delivery phase of the assets
This document specifies requirements for information management, in the form of a management
process, within the context of the delivery phase of assets and the exchanges of information within it,using building information modelling.
This document can be applied to all types of assets and by all types and sizes of organizations, regardless of the chosen procurement strategy.
