BIM-Enabled collaborative platform for innovative low impact school procurement – The Oakfield Primary School project

BIM-enabled collaborative platform (BIM-ECP) for low impact schools is an InnovateUK funded project aiming to utilise Building Information Modelling (BIM) to enable continuous process and product development through collaboration between key members of the supply-chain. One aspect of BIM-ECP has been applied at the new Oakfield Primary School, a combination of new build and refurbishment project, completed and opened for use in October 2012. Using Building Management System (BMS) project data, the partners are looking at ways to use BIM in order to close the upstream knowledge-feedback loop between construction and design.  InnovateUK case study.pdf
