BIM has been making a massive contribution to the timely and smooth delivery of construction projects. This process has resulted in large amounts of digital data being created to capture all areas of the project. Because of this, a role is needed to handle this vast amount of data. This Information Manager role requires a high level of control and accuracy, ensuring the data is appropriately interpreted and reaches the right people at the right time.

A Government Construction Strategy was published in 2011 in the UK. The strategy set a minimum requirement for Level 2 BIM on centrally-procured public projects, incorporating the requirement for all documentation and project information to be electronic. The construction industry drafted a number of BIM protocols, such as: Construction Industry Council (CIC) BIM protocol, which sets out the requirement to appoint an information manager.

COBie Support

Because of our esteemed reputation within the construction solutions industry, In 2017, we became the first UK provider certified to teach the COBie Academy. Because of this, we have gained great experience in the delivery of COBie training, set to empower your business.

What is COBie?

A construction project involves different types of data, e.g. drawings, bills of quantities, etc. These are put together by architects, designers and builders and then provided to the client in a format that is not of great use to them. Due to this, COBie was designed to contain standardised information in a standardised format that is then shared between professionals at set stages within the project.

The Construction Operations Building Information Exchange or simply, COBie is an international standard. Made to ensure the efficient capture and delivery of BIM-related data. Consequently, it was put together by a number of US public agencies and it is generally a spreadsheet offering a consistent format for construction data.

Why is training needed?

Most importantly, COBie accreditations are essential for anyone working in a BIM environment. As a result, the COBie Academy is designed to provide contractors, subcontractors, architects, engineers, information managers and project owners with the essential knowledge and hands-on techniques needed to work effectively within a BIM workflow.
