One associated benefit with significant impact on productivity concerns the way these clashes can be fixed using a BIM system.

Level 1 – Managed CAD in 2D or 3D format using BS 1192:2007 (BSI, 2008) with a collaboration tool providing a CDE (Common Data Environment) and possibly some standard data structures and formats. Commercial data managed by stand-alone finance and cost management packages with no integration. Level 2 – Managed 3D environment held in separate discipline ‘BIM’ tools with attached data. Commercial data managed by ERP (enterprise resource planning) 34 UK Government’s BIM strategy systems. Integration on the basis of proprietary interfaces or bespoke middleware could be regarded as ‘pBIM’ (Proprietary BIM).
