ISO 19650: Presents a New Framework for BIM (Building Information Modeling)

ISO 19650 is not only a technological solution, but will also unite the construction industry worldwide. With BIM data interoperability and increased transparency, global project collaboration will be even more effective.

Technological advances have opened the door to a new era in the construction industry. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has introduced a new milestone with the release of a new standard that promises to be revolutionary: ISO 19650. This standard takes Building Information Modeling (BIM) to a new level, providing a cutting-edge framework for managing construction project information.


BIM is nothing new in the construction industry, but ISO 19650 takes this concept to a higher international level. With a focus on information management using BIM, this standard marks an important step towards a more efficient, collaborative, and structured future for the construction industry.

Good news for architects, engineers, and construction professionals!

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has just released a revolutionary new set of standards: ISO 19650. This standard presents a cutting-edge framework for managing construction project information using building information modeling (BIM).

The first two parts of ISO 19650, entitled "Organization and digitization of information about buildings and civil engineering works, including building information modeling (BIM) – Information management using building information modeling", have been officially published.


BIM: The Future of the Construction Industry

BIM promises a major transformation for the construction industry. This technology enables professionals to plan, design, and manage building projects with unprecedented levels of efficiency.

With BIM, architects, engineers, and contractors can:

  • Collaborate in real time on a single, centralized building model
  • Identify and resolve problems more quickly and easily
  • Optimize building design and minimize costs
  • Improve communication and collaboration between teams

International Standards for Global Collaboration


ISO 19650 is not just a technological solution, but an international standard that will unite the construction industry worldwide. This will:

  • Enables more effective collaboration on global projects
  • Ensure interoperability of BIM data between platforms and organizations
  • Increase transparency and accountability in the industry

Real Benefits for Industry

Jøns Sjøgren, chairman of the ISO technical subcommittee that developed this standard, explains that ISO 19650 is based on the proven British standard BS 1192. This standard has helped users save up to 22 percent on construction costs.

“Bringing BIM to an international level not only means more effective collaboration on global projects, but also allows designers and contractors working on all types of building work to have clearer and more efficient information management,” said Sjøgren.

Bright Future

ISO 19650 has just started a new chapter in the BIM journey. Part 3 of this standard, scheduled for publication in the future, will focus on managing the operational phase of assets. Part 5 will be dedicated to security-first BIM, digital built environments, and intelligent asset management.

With this new framework, the construction industry is poised to enter a new era that is more efficient, collaborative, and sustainable.

Conclusion

ISO 19650 is a monumental step for the construction industry. This standard paves the way for digital transformation that will increase efficiency, transparency, and collaboration in building projects around the world.
