PAS 1192-2:2013 - Specification for information management for the capital/delivery phase of construction projects using building information modelling

This document (available as a free download from BSI) provides information on the management of data produced within a BIM project environment, and supplements the processes and procedures contained in BS 1192:2007. As well as expanding the CDE (Common Data Environment) information contained in BS 1192:2007, also describes documents which should be produced as part of the BIM process, and details roles and responsibilities necessary to implement a BIM process on a project. It introduces new concepts such as employer’s information requirements (EIR) – the employer’s expression what information they require from the project and the format it should be in, and BIM execution plans (BEP) – the supply chain’s response to the EIR showing how it will meet its requirements.

The PAS starts by outlining the background and context of the document, including reference to the Government’s BIM requirements, and states that PAS 1192-2:2013 is one of a number of documents published in support of the Government’s strategy, published in May 2011. Other information around this strategy includes information on the levels of maturity (particularly Level 2).

There are also amendments to the CDE process, and the data naming methodology where there is no longer any reference to the classification category ('T50' in the example given here).

PAS 1192-3:2014 - Specification for information management for the operational phase of assets using building information modelling

This takes the processes and develops them for use in the operational life of assets. In turn, this leads to the use of new concepts such as organizational information requirements (OIR) – the information which the organisation needs to know in order to run the business, the asset information requirements (AIR) – the information the organisation needs about the asset it is responsible for, and the asset information model (AIM) – the information or data set which describes the asset.

This is an important document for the FM industry as it sets out the need for comprehensive and accurate information, the AIM, which can be used as the basis for all asset-related decision making. However, it also requires that the AIM is kept up-to-date to accurately reflect the status of the asset.

BS 1192-4

(Unlike the others on this page this is not a PAS) This defines expectations for the exchange of information throughout the lifecycle of an asset, and includes requirements for reviewing and checking for compliance, continuity and completeness. More information

PAS 1192-5: Specification for security-minded building information management, digital built environments and smart asset management

This PAS is available from BSI and outlines security threats to the use of information during asset conception, procurement, design, construction, operation, and disposal. It addresses the steps required to create and cultivate an appropriate security mindset and the security culture necessary to enable business to unlock new and more efficient processes and collaborative ways of working.

The PAS has been developed to integrate a security-minded approach into the construction lifecycle processes as specified in PAS 1192-2 and the asset management processes described in PAS 1192-3.
