The extensive adoption of the BIM methodology puts the model itself as the basis for bidding and development in Design and Construction projects. This is a quite novel aspect in architectural projects, which opens the way to a series of questions that up to now did not need to be answered: what method of work was adopted in the projects previous phases? What were the client's requests in relation to BIM, and how were they answered? Does the BIM model really integrate all the information? Has it been modeled following a pre-established script or good practices? Can the model support the following phases and new customer requests?
Model Uses and models reliability
When a BIM model is part of the material provided by an administration, it is essential to audit the model and analyze the BIM Execution Plan (BEP) and the modeling manual that should accompany it, if available, before any other action. In large projects, as in the case of healthcare facilities, the large amount of data to be managed can reduce the performance of the model, and it is essential to understand very well the way in which the components are structured, and even more the structure of the information and the veracity of it. Otherwise, these models cannot be considered reliable.
