Standardizing BIM with GSA

The General Services Administration was one of the first building owners to require and implement BIM.

The GSA has released the BIM Guide Series over the past few years and is currently taking advantage of the Nationwide BIM Services IDIQ to add to and update it. The KlingStubbins/Tocci IDIQ team has been selected to develop a generic BIM template to serve as an appendix to Series 01 – 3D-4D-BIM Overview. The generic BIM template will leverage existing work from various regions (including some great work that Ghafari did with Region 5) but will maintain vendor neutrality. KlingStubbins/Tocci will be using their current BIM Execution Plan (BEP) process as a framework to facilitate the future development of a GSA BEP template.
