1. General Check:
This involves the overall review of the BIM model to ensure that all components are accurate and correspond with the overall design intent. The review should include the overall geometry, topology, and accuracy of elements. All objects should be organized in a logical manner, with descriptive names and user-defined properties assigned to each object.
2. Space Check:
This review involves analyzing the spaces within the BIM model to ensure that each space contains all of the necessary components, such as walls, doors, windows, and other elements. The topology and accuracy of these objects should also be checked. Additionally, all spaces should have a designated type and purpose, with relevant user-defined properties assigned to them.
3. Design Check:
The design check ensures that all components in the BIM model correspond with the original design intent. This includes both geometric accuracy and material correctness for each element in the model. Any discrepancies between the design drawings and actual construction should be noted and addressed through revisions or modifications to the BIM model.
4. MEP Check:
This review focuses on the engineering, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems that are part of the BIM model. Checks should ensure that all components related to these systems are accurately modeled and that the information is properly coordinated between each discipline. The accuracy of equipment placement, ductwork runs and other MEP objects should also be checked against the design drawings.
5. Construction Check:
The construction check reviews the elements in the BIM model for their suitability for use in fabrication or assembly on site. All objects should adhere to applicable codes and standards and allow enough tolerance for proper installation on site. Additionally, any conflicts between different systems or elements should be identified during this review stage.
6. Model Revision:
The final step in the BIM QA/QC process is the revision of any objects that do not meet the necessary requirements. This can include changing geometries, modifying connections or adding additional elements to ensure accuracy and compliance with design intent. All revisions should be documented so that all stakeholders are aware of the changes and can validate them accordingly. Following these steps will ensure a high quality BIM model that meets the expectations of all project participants.
