White Paper – Integrating the BIM and Spec Design Process
Portland, Maine (February 15, 2022) – Chalkline has a new white paper outlining the benefits, challenges, levels of integration, and steps to successfully integrate the BIM model and Spec Design Process.
Architectural and engineering design deliverables include the BIM models and design specifications. The BIM modeling and spec writing processes have been performed by different users, on different timelines, and even different companies. The difficult manual process of coordinating the two design efforts results in RFIs and addendums due to errors and omissions which have not been identified by the tools used in practice. There is a huge opportunity to reduce time, save money, and deliver higher-quality products with integration and coordination between these separate processes and deliverables.
The paper’s goal is to address past issues and questions so firms can take steps to achieve the benefits of an integrated BIM and spec design process. The integration of these processes should flag inconsistencies in the models and specifications helping ensure all team members are aware of the selections and changes being made. Issues found earlier in the design process require less time and cost to fix enabling time to be spent in other areas.
