Bentley Institute Press releases Plain Language BIM print and eBook versions

December 18, 2017 – Bentley Institute Press, publisher of a broad array of textbooks and professional reference works dedicated to BIM advancements in the architectural, engineering, construction, operations, geospatial, and educational communities, announced the availability of their newest title, Plain Language BIM, now available as both a print publication and as an eBook for Kindle and iOS devices.

Because BIM improves the ability to manage, produce, and consume asset information throughout the lifecycle (design, construction, operations, and maintenance) of infrastructure assets, an increasing number of governments around the world are mandating BIM Level 2 standards and deliverables for publicly funded projects. Successfully implementing a BIM strategy can result in cost savings, improved performance, and better project outcomes. Plain Language BIM is written for beginners and for those with experience with BIM strategies to ensure all professionals are thoroughly prepared to be part of industry efforts focused on advancing BIM.

Plain Language BIM condenses years of experience and lessons learned from Bentley Institute’s BIM Advancement Academy. It is designed to guide the reader through the many complexities of BIM methodology by providing a plain language understanding of the concepts and building blocks required to deliver an effective strategy. It demonstrates why gathering data about the asset is vital to the BIM process, and why trustworthy and reliable information, delivered in an understandable and consumable manner, is essential for effective decision making—upgrading, augmenting, replacing, decommissioning, or leaving assets as they are.

Plain Language BIM also explores three elements in creating good BIM practices: people, process, and technology. It explains how the combination of these elements plays a crucial role in the lifecycle of an asset and in delivering better outcomes. The book also examines the “Eight Pillars of BIM Wisdom” that ensure best practices and world-class BIM vision.
