  • Project Team Integration – The Key To Optimising BIM

    ACIF and the Australasian Procurement and Construction Council (APCC) have produced two important and valuable guides to help the construction industry improve productivity. The Case for Project Team Integration, and The Project Team Integration Workbook contain straightforward ways to improve project team collaboration and performance. They make a strong case for early integration of project team members, to get the best from all disciplines that can contribute to good project outcomes and, where it is used, from Building Information Modelling (BIM). Collaboration amongst members of project teams in the construction industry is a good thing. It is a vital input to efficiency and productivity, reduction in wasted effort, and minimisation of disputes.  BIM will produce best results (design to achieve project sponsors' objectives, minimal changes, optimal buildability, designed-in operational efficiency) when all who can contribute are involved in designing and planning for the work they will perform for the project. That requires                integrating project teams to create, sustain and encourage the collaborative behaviour required of all members of project teams if optimal project outcomes are to be achieved; and the powerful enabling tools presented by BIM, that optimise the process of planning, designing, constructing and operating assets. Both developments have demonstrated significant improvements in time, cost and quality outcomes, when used separately. The industry is beginning to invest heavily in BIM to drive more efficient design, site management, construction methods, and asset management. It is also a key to driving greater productivity from supply chain arrangements, offering opportunities to standardise and modularise components. The full benefits of BIM will not be realised without a delivery methodology in place that facilitates the integration of contractors, trade contractors and suppliers in the design process. The benefits of early appointment coupled with use of BIM to develop design solutions to meet needs, are significant. The orthodox approach of appointing contractors only after designs are sufficiently developed to allow for tendering denies buyers opportunities for productivity gains, both in capital and recurrent cost. Both documents are available to download free of charge here on ACIF website or ACIF and APCC will be holding workshops to demonstrate how the Workbook can improve project outcomes, and will present an hour long webinar on the Workbook in September for the International Association for Contract and Commercial Management. Dates will be announced soon.
