As part of the series of BITESized talks at the RIBA Village auditorium at Ecobuild 2013, Dr Stephen Hamil of RIBA Enterprises discusses specification in a BIM world.
Specification in a BIM world
Specifications for construction: defined. For all the talk about models awash with data (both graphical and non-graphical) you avoid the specification at your peril. But what is a specification for construction? What form does it take? What detail should it contain?
Following the launch of What Specifiers Want 2017, we asked four specifiers from a variety of practices, to share their experiences of specification, product selection and manufacturer support.
