BS 1192

Collaborative Production of Architectural, Engineering and Construction Information - Code of Practice (BS 1192:2007 + A2:2016)


Extended Description

BS 1192 provides a ‘best-practice’ method for the development, organization and management of production information for the construction industry, using a disciplined process for collaboration and a specified naming policy.

It provides the template for common naming conventions and approaches to collaborative working for use in architecture, engineering and construction. It also facilitates efficient data use in facilities management.

The principles for information sharing and common modelling outlined in this standard underpin Level 2 BIM standards and are equally applicable to building and civil projects. [Source: http://bim-level2.org/]
