As the Construction industry embraces Building Information Modelling (BIM) as the main methodology of work, it is necessary for construction organisations to be aware and understand their current level of maturity on the subject and how it can be improved to reach industry’s highest standards. Through the consolidation of the BIM maturity matrix and years of experience in the field, LogiKal has developed a BIM Maturity Assessment tool that allows our partners to analyse their situation in five different areas:
People: Projects need expertise and quality resources to be delivered. They can only succeed when the right people work effectively as a team. Identifying skills shortages enables decisions on a strategic training programme to close gaps by upskilling existing staff.
Policy: The organisation is involved in mandating, regulating or facilitating the adoption of innovative systems/processes across the industry. Policies are created to educate practitioners, conduct research, allocate responsibilities, minimise conflicts and regulate the delivery of facilities.
Process: The organisation can optimise its ability to deliver projects through the consistent application of robust methods successfully. Whilst existing techniques may be mature for the current setup, transformation to Digital Engineering may require aligning existing plans, workflows and procedures.
Systems: Software systems help form the backbone of a strong, efficient project control capability. However, these depend on the processes and people to use them effectively. The research focuses on understanding existing systems to identify gaps. The main goal is to minimise disruption to existing systems by maximising the utilisation of existing systems in the transformation.
Data: The data is the basis for all presentation, visualisation, information exchange and collaboration within the process. Consistent data requires committed people, well-defined processes and integrated systems. With these aspects, the data can be accurately and reliably extracted to be transformed into information and knowledge.
Within these five areas, the measurement of BIM performance is expanded into detailed topics that cover the ISO 19650 series and can be adjusted to the unique needs of each role. Once the current situation is diagnosed, our team develops a bespoke roadmap to take our clients and projects to the next stage of maturity.
LogiKal’s BIM Maturity Assessment is comprised of two phases. Phase 1 starts with the Diagnostic of the current BIM maturity level through a survey, focusing on the collaboration of the working environment on a project, the BIM uses and the challenges or barriers of the methodology. The survey must be completed in full honesty to ensure the information collected is a faithful reflection of reality. After the surveys are conducted, the data is analysed, processed and presented in an interactive dashboard. Hence, our clients clearly understand their maturity level and the areas where improvement is needed.
The dashboard contrasts our client’s experience against the government’s requirements on all public sector construction projects, as well as the internal perception on the matter.
Once the client is aware of their BIM maturity situation, Phase 2 presents the client with a conscious decision about stepping up to the next stage according to the proposed roadmap, which details every step required to improve the client’s BIM maturity in all the topics and areas covered in the survey.
