Information, Risk & Built Asset Management Report (February 2022)

Nick Nisbet, Vice Chair of buildingSMART UK&I and Chris Lees, Technical Director at OSCRE have created a technical report addressing the integration of Risk, Information and asset Management based on existing standards.  Feedback and comments are welcome through details provided in the report or by email.

The following are resources developed between 2017 and 2021, they remain valuable for projects ongoing but terminology may have been superseded by recent developments.

Client (appointing party) Exchange Information Requirements

These are offered to support the preparation of EIRs for building and for infrastructure projects focused on both systems and product types. The pack includes a written report and a spreadsheet tool to document some key requirements. This was developed in a UKBIMA collaborative project in 2016-17.

COBie for all 

This includes a review of the challenges raised relating to the use of COBie in infrastructure and worked examples of 5 specific cases.  This was a collaborative project by a number of infrastructure partners including Transport for London (TfL) and Highways England (HE).

COBie templates

These illustrate the information required for specific component and product types as web-pages, COBie spreadsheets and IFC files. They were prepared to support the COBie pilot implementations in 2012.

COBie property sets

These summarise the additional property sets recommended in BS1192-4:2014 clause 7 for use with COBie in the UK. The property sets are presented as web-pages and as buildingSMART PSet definitions in XML
