BIM. certainly.

Start your project with BIMQ !

BIMQ is a solution developed by AEC3 for an automated management and testing of employer information requirements (EIR).

Good cooperation when using BIMQ ensures high-quality data, makes BIM more secure and leads your projects to success.

 

BIMQ delivers tailored guidelines for EIR that are configurable for each product. 

LOD definitions are supplied in native software and neutral (IFC) with rules for an automatic check. 

Asset management handover requirements for as-built models are supported in-depth with validation rules. 

Make projects contracts certain, plan execution and delivery reliably.

ASSET MANAGER

Your task

Owner

As an owner you call for bids, steer and take over the BIM project.  

Define your own BIM goals and use cases. 

Define comprehensive EIR in digital form that is verifiable on the basis of templates. 

Issue calls for bids with BIM and conclude BIM contracts reliably. 

Designer and contractor

As a designer and contractor, you get a good understanding of the EIR, adopt it in your own software and deliver the correct models. 

Interpret and make BIM calls for bids correctly. 

Prepare and derive BIM execution plans, set up your own IT properly. 

Create BIM models to the agreed detail, deliver and check them against EIR. 

 

Asset manager

As an asset manager, you define relevant operating data and ensure the complete delivery at the right time. 

Receive the data for building operation by the handover. 

Place well-timed accurate requirements on data exchanges. 

Before CAFM approval, check deliverables for quality and completeness. 

Our solution

Owner

Define your own information requirements for the BIM process by key LOD definitions with classifications, mappings to open formats and validation rules for the contractual delivery of BIM models. 

Export the summary of EIR according to use case, phase and actor as PDF contract annex for the EIR. 

Designer and contractor

Transform the agreed LOD definitions in the EIR and BEP into templates for BIM software for direct integration in planning; derive IFC settings for data transfer and validation rules for the quality check in BIM viewer and checker software. 

Export property sets for BIM software configuration and validation rules for quality management.

Asset manager

Define information requirements according to the CAFM catalogue for various Facility Management tasks to ensure smooth takeover of BIM models. 

Handover of CAFM data in steps at milestones during the project and before the construction activity approval validate completeness.   

Your benefit

Owner

Define use cases and use them in the project. 

Include catalogues for BIM discipline specific models, model elements and attributes, and define LOD. 

Generate annexes containing the LOD as PDF files for every discipline. 

Designer and contractor

Understand and comment EIR specifications. 

Set up the BEP with updated use cases and LOD definitions. 

Use LOD specifications from the BEP to set up BIM software and IFC deliverables.

Asset manager

Include FM catalogues already in the EIR. 

Enable automatic quality checks by creating digital validation rules. 

Already during the project, define stepwise data transfers for CAFM. 

User reviews

Contracting authority

"Norwegian Government Client Statsbygg, together with Consulting Group COWI, has been using BIMQ from AEC3 to specify the data requirements based on IFC for the upcoming Statsbygg BIM Manual 2.0. BIMQ enables the export of standard rule sets in open mvdXML format to automate the validation of our requested IFC4 based BIM deliverables in suitable software like simplebim 7. BIMQ has been considerably improved recently and we look forward to use it for steadily improving our Statsbygg open BIM requirements."

Frode Mohus, Statsbygg, Norwegen

General contractor

„BIMQ helps us organize diverse requirements of our internal business processes in the model content. In addition, we have to deal with the owner's project specific information requirements. So, we keep the overview with the structured management of model standards and model data.”

Marcus Schreyer, Max Bögl

 

Asset manager

”In the development of CAFM-Connect, we use BIMQ as a system for the management of types of elements, attributes and BIM profiles. BIMQ is very helpful for issuing and sharing the necessary catalogues on the basis of open standards IFC (DIN EN ISO 16739). While using it, we get a really good support from the AEC3 team behind BIMQ.”
