LEVEL 2 BIM

We know that through BIM, Speller Metcalfe has the long-term investment potential to considerably reduce contract tender values, associated costs and project programme time scales while providing our clients, partners and supply chain with a more transparent and collaborative approach.
Government Requirements and the BIM Maturity Model
The BIM maturity model is set out from Levels 0 – 3; it encompasses the ability of the construction supply chain to operate and exchange information and defines the supporting infrastructure required at each level:
- Level 0: Operating using unmanaged CAD 2D drawings through paper exchange.
- Level 1: Managed CAD (2D or 3D) using a collaborative web-based application. Time and cost managed separately without integration into the existing model.
- Level 2: Fully collaborative 3D BIM with all project and asset information and documentation as electronic. May integrate 4D construction sequencing and/or 5D cost information.
- Level 3: Fully integrated BIM processes incorporating a sixth dimension - project life cycle management information
By 2016, the Government will require all public sector projects to be working to the equivalent of Level 2 on the maturity scale as a minimum. At Speller Metcalfe we have been working to Level 2 since 2012 across both public and private sector projects.
