The Digital BIM Toolkit – the final piece to the UK Government’s BIM Task Group suite of Level 2 BIM documentation – has received various updates following feedback from its users, that’s according to coverage from Specification Online.

The most notable upgrade due to feedback is the ability to add other project partners to a specific Digital Plan of Work (dPoW). Named users can now view the project and provide comments yet they are not able to make amendments themselves; that task is just down to the project’s creator.

Commenting on the new updates, one of the toolkit’s key developers, NBS‘ Director of Design and Innovation, Stephen Hamil stated: “We have been delighted with the level of engagement from the industry in the development of the BIM Toolkit and all of the enhancements and new features that have now been included are a direct result of feedback from users. The intention has always been to develop a tool for the whole industry with the help of those within it and we believe we’ve addressed many of the suggestions that have been made over the last few months.

“The latest version of the Toolkit will be even simpler for everyone to use and makes an even greater contribution to promoting collaboration between team members which is at the heart of all the talk about BIM.”

Other improvements are related to Level of Information (LOI) and Level of Detail (LOD) templates whilst changes have been made to the Uniclass 2015 tables too. Specific EIR requirements can also now be defined at each stage of the project.
