The main UNSW campus is located on a 38-hectare site at Kensington, seven kilometres from the centre of Sydney. Other major campuses are Art & Design in Paddington and UNSW Canberra at the Australian Defence Force Academy.

UNSW has introduced a significant capital growth programme spanning ten years, and plans to use this as a catalyst to review and improve how asset information is managed across the entire estate.

BIM Academy was asked to create a corporate and operational strategy for BIM implementation across the organisation. As a result, we produced a practical roadmap describing the methods to deliver organisation-wide implementation.

In order to do this, we interviewed up to 50 people across several departments within the organisation to understand current processes, protocols and systems. We also consulted with employees to understand their aspirations for a digitised estate.

After interviewing stakeholders, we established key themes and then created a report that explored these further. A roadmap was then derived detailing the phases of work required to reach the established goal of delivering optimised performance through efficient and effective delivery of projects and operation, and integrated digital information systems and processes.

The report delivered a suite of template BIM documents including Organisation Information Requirements (OIR), Asset Information Model (AIR) and Exchange Information Requirements (EIR).

We further recommended pilot projects and laid out all the critical stages and priorities into an achievable roadmap whilst putting together indicative budgets.
