The competence and understanding of BIM, of the consultants and delivery team partners to be involved in the project, shall be assessed and results included in Post-Contract BEP.

The assessment shall cover three aspects of competency of:

  • Capability and Capacity to Manage Information
  • Capability and Capacity to Produce the Information
  • Assessment of the availability of information technology (IT)

The assessment can be split into three groups, dependent on the organisation input into BIM:


For example, an M&E contractor is required to provide a full spectrum of Stage 2 compliant models and documentation as well as use supporting software and workflows.


For example, the Door manufacturer is required to provide COBie compliant objects, structured data and to be able to access documentation via a CDE as well as make use of field BIM applications.


For example, a Carpet fitter is required to access the latest documentation from the CDE application and make use of field BIM applications.

The table below provides an example summary of the consultants and delivery team partners with BIM responsibility on the project.

The delivery team Capability Summary compares the BIM capabilities of the same Group in the supply chain. The percentage of their capabilities is the result of the score in the BIM questionnaire related to the maximum score possible.
