IVI Webinar - Digital Construction: I.S. EN ISO 19650-2:2018 - Practical Insights and Irish Annex

Thursday 24 June 2021 | 15.00-16.30 [GMT+1]

ISO 19650-2:2018 is the standard for organization and digitization of information about buildings and civil engineering works, including building information modelling (BIM) – Information management using building information modelling and the Part 2 is for delivery phase of the assets.

The delivery phase of assets consists of eight activities, including: 1) Assessment and need; 2) Invitation to tender; 3) Tender response; 4) Appointment; 5) Mobilization; 6) Collaborative production of information; 7) Information model delivery; 8) project close-out.  All the eight activities are undertaken per each state of any building project life cycle.

According to ISO 19650-1: 2018, which outline the “concepts and principles of information management”, effective management of information shall be applied throughout the project duration. For this purpose, various information planning and production tasks have been defined, in association with the activities through the delivery phase of assets a process, has been outlined in part 2 of ISO 19650. In simple terms, the requirements in ISO19650-2 sets out a “Plan-Do-Check-Act” process for the project team to engage in.

This webinar aims to provide some insights to ISO 19650-2:2018 from different practice perspectives, and to introduce the Irish annex for this standard and the aims of creating this annex.
