ISO 19650 is a series of international standards that provide guidance for managing information throughout the lifecycle of buildings and other construction projects using Building Information Modelling (BIM). This suite of international standards forms part of the UK BIM Framework.

Learning about ISO 19650 provides construction professionals with standardised guidelines for effective information management using BIM. Conforming to ISO 19650 can enhance project delivery, reduce errors, and improve decision-making, ultimately leading to cost savings and higher-quality built assets.

Developed by BRE’s team of BIM experts, ISO 19650 Delivering Information Management in Practice is a one-day course designed to equip learners to realise the benefits of information management using BIM.

This comprehensive course suits those implementing information management within their organisation, or assisting their clients or supply chains with undertaking the information manager role.

Comprising four modules, the course covers the information management function, information requirements, BIM execution planning, and the production of information.

The course presents examples of documents to help learners develop a deeper understanding of how to effectively implement information management principles within their own projects.

After completing the course, learners will be able to:

  • Understand the information management function and the associated tasks for each party
  • Recognise the need for SMART information requirements
  • Define exchange information requirements (EIR)
  • Identify and establish high level information requirements to support the production of the EIR
  • Apply the process of extracting project information standards and projects information methods and procedures
  • Identify the methods of assessing the supply chain
  • Recognise the key considerations when assessing the supply chain
  • Define a Pre-Appointment BIM Execution Plan (BEP) and a Delivery Teams BIM Execution Plan (BEP)
  • Explain the key elements and apply the process of authoring a BEP
  • Appreciate how information can change to suit its intended purpose
  • Describe the key considerations when approving information
  • Identify the key tasks and considerations associated with information exchanges
  • Appreciate the key considerations when accepting information
  • Recognise the open data format requirements and the data format requirements to comply with COBie
