One key aspect of BIM Level 2 is the appointment of an Information Manager by the client. The CIC Outline Scope of Services for the Role of Information Management document summarises the tasks of the Information Manager into 4 main areas:Whilst the information manager role can change through the lifespan of a project, it is imperative that all the tasks and who is responsible for each is clearly documented within the appointment. The IM can sit within the design/construction team or be a completely independent appointment, but they will have no design responsibility and no responsibility for clash detection or model coordination as part of the role.
The Common Data Environment is the single source of all approved information and documents (not just BIM models) relating to a project. This allows for greater collaboration across the entire team and helps to facilitate consistency, reducing errors.
