The first Hungarian BIM Handbook has been prepared and published on the website of Lechner Tudásközpont on 22 June 2018, free of charge. Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a new approach to design, construction and facility management, where the digital representation of the building process is used to facilitate the exchange and interoperability of information in digital format. BIM is beginning to change the way buildings look, the way they function and how they are designed and built.
The purpose of the BIM handbook is to serve as a guideline to owners, managers, designers, engineers and contractors by providing them a new point of view. The handbook will consist of 4 volumes and the first part that is available now provides details about the most important definitions and principles, like LOD (Level of Development) and LOI (Level of Information).
For the preparation of the handbook, standards and guidelines of 12 countries and also the ISO standards had been taken into consideration.
