UK BIM Framework updates information management guide for ISO 19650

The UK BIM Framework has updated and published the Guidance for Information Management according to BS EN ISO 19650. The new suite of guidance documents support the BS EN ISO 19650 series and provide specific guidance on BS EN ISO 19650-2, the delivery phase of assets, and ISO 19650-3, the operational phase.

This suite of documents (comprising Guidance Parts 1 – 3 and Parts A – F) has been developed in response to feedback, to accommodate the expanding coverage of guidance and to capture the recently published ISO 19650-3. New content explores ISO 19650-3 (Guidance 3), the information management function (Guidance A) and responsibility matrices (Guidance F).

Guidance D now provides examples to demonstrate the content and relationship between different information requirements. These examples are supported with a database and a short, informative video. The second edition of the Information Protocol has also been published in response to feedback.

Bim+ quoted Sarah Davidson, co-editor of the Guidance, as saying that this new suite of guidance has been developed to offer easy to access, structured content. It is ever-expanding, and while there is still more to do, it now covers many of the themes set out in the ISO 19650 series.

She adds that she believes that it is a significant team effort and she is hugely thankful to all the people who continue to offer their time and expertise in authoring and providing shape through feedback.

David Churcher, co-Editor of the Guidance and author of Guidance Part 3, said that he is very pleased that, as part of this update, they have been able to produce some initial guidance for ISO 19650-3 which was only published in the UK on 19 August.
