Bentley Institute Press, publisher of a broad array of textbooks and professional reference works dedicated to BIM advancements in the architectural, engineering, construction, operations, geospatial, and educational communities, announced the availability of the Plain Language BIM.
BIM improves the ability to manage, produce, and consume asset information throughout infrastructure assets. As a result, governments around the world are mandating BIM Level 2 standards and deliverables for publicly funded projects.
Plain Language BIM is beneficial for beginners and for those with experience with BIM strategies to ensure all professionals are thoroughly prepared to be part of industry efforts focused on advancing BIM.
“We are pleased to offer this highly anticipated title from Bentley Institute Press,” said Vinayak Trivedi, vice president, Bentley Institute. “With this addition to our library, Bentley Institute Press continues to advance the professions through world-class publications for infrastructure, available in printed and digital formats. These publications foster communication between industry, researchers, and students, and draw upon Bentley’s collective 30-plus years of expertise in infrastructure industries.”
Plain Language BIM condenses experiences and lessons learned from Bentley Institute’s BIM Advancement Academy, and guides the reader through BIM methodology by providing a plain language understanding of the concepts and building blocks required to deliver an effective strategy.
Plain Language BIM also explores three elements in creating good BIM practices: people, process, and technology. It explains how the combination of these elements plays a role in the lifecycle of an asset and in delivering better outcomes. The book also examines the “Eight Pillars of BIM Wisdom” that ensure best practices and world-class BIM vision.
Author Iain Miskimmin said: “Current industry thinking in the digital world moves at a fast-changing pace. But the lessons we have learned in the BIM Advancement Academy and that we share with you in this book, are an excellent starting point for any individual or organization wishing to grasp both the high-level reasoning and the details of BIM.”
