We have promoted various opinions relating to Building Information Modelling for landscape architecture as of late, with more opinion pieces and interviews to be released soon.

Following on from that aforementioned coverage, today we would like to remind you that you have just one week remaining to provide the Landscape Institute with feedback in relation to their latest BIM industry project.

The LI BIM Working Group have recently released a selection of pilot Product Data Templates (PDTs) to their website, and they are looking for feedback regarding them. Current PDTs – like many other elements of a BIM process – don’t quite translate to landscape projects, hence why the LI are creating some of their own.

The official Landscape Institute website writes: “Product data is central to BIM, and PDTs provide a standard means for manufacturers and suppliers in the built environment sector to provide consistent data that can feed into a BIM workflow.

“The initial list is intended to cover a broad range of product types, and this pilot will inform the creation of a full list of templates in the future. Other built environment institutions are also currently consulting on templates in their respective practice areas as part of a cross-disciplinary drive to prepare for the Digital Plan of Works.”

The LI recently commissioned Henry Fenby-Taylor to write a book on BIM relating to landscape projects titled BIM for Landscape, a development we have promoted here on BIMcrunch.
