The BIM Level 2 suite of documents now includes a code of practice for asset management in the form of BS 8536-2: 2016.
The design of an asset has an impact on its design, construction and operation. The existing process for this was deemed to lack adequate feedback from operations and while the concept of buildability/constructability has long been accepted, the new code of practice seeks to ensure operability is considered as a matter of routine practice.
What format does the standard take?
The new standard adopts the structure and format of its companion document, BS 8536-1:2015 (Code of practice for facilities management (Buildings infrastructure) and, as such, incorporates the principles of briefing associated with BIM Level 2 and Government Soft Landings.
