Today is an important day for everyone who deals with BIM: the Information Delivery Specification Design & Engineering (IDS D&E) is a fact. It is the next step towards the standardization of different IDSs. LEVS architecten was one of 100 companies in the sector that submitted ideas for this. We believe in the power of the network and think that it is very important to activate as much knowledge as possible to tackle the digital challenges in an integrated manner.
We have been using BIM for ten years to develop our projects together with advisors, contractors and producers. Just like many of our colleagues, we wanted more uniformity in the IDS to be able to work more efficiently within a project and across projects. IDS D&E, version 1.0 is not an end point, but the starting point for continuous improvement. It clearly indicates which information from the performance models in the design process is needed to get an integral design. From now on, this will lead to an optimized engineering and production process.
