BIMQ in video: Autodesk model "Golden Nugget"

AIA requirements can be conveniently implemented in Autodesk Revit

Conveniently implement AIA requirements in Autoesk Revit BIMQ and the AIA Editor as a sample video with the Revit model "Golden Nugget"

Make projects contract-safe, secure planning and safe for use. Secure your information management with the BIMQ web server solution. From the client information requirements and BAP requirements, create your Revit software templates: shared parameters and IFC mapping files. And the special feature: the export for a secure quality management of test rules in model checkers.

Navigate safely through planning with ARCHICAD and BIMQ

BIMQ supports the workflow with ARCHICAD

ARCHICAD as a model-based planning software integrates BIMQ specifically into the workflow of a BIM planning. Behind BIMQ is a web-based database that is especially interesting for architects, but also for builders and planners. Amongst other things, it gives you the chance to fixate the preceding EIR (employer information requirements) of a BIM project securely in the contract and planning thus tying it into the project. It is also the basis for all the following planning steps and the main theme of the entire project. The more accurate it is, the more transparent, safer, and more effective the entire BIM process is. In addition, BIMQ is also an ideal solution for the cooperation of all stakeholders, even if EIR is not required by the employer: the planning becomes safe and binding; the architect becomes a qualified coordinator in an integrated planning.

Basic guidelines as a foundation for the BIM project

The access to BIMQ is very easy: the user loads the website and logs in to his account. Then, he has the option to choose between different basic guidelines that have been developed and verified by AEC3 and are based on successfully implemented projects. The user can now add these guidelines according to his personal requirements, adapt them and take them as a basis for the development of the EIR with the client. When they agree the BIM project execution plan (BEP) can be established from it. So, who delivers which information when and with what information content in the planning and construction process?

Quality requirements for the contractor

Information requirements

All information used in planning with the BIM method has to be beforehand precisely labeled. In the future, a lot of stakeholders shall work together; therefore, BIM will work only if everyone speaks and understands the same language.

The goal: accurate BIM discipline models

Designers from all domains work continuously in BIM discipline models from which all plans are derived during the project phase. The BIM models are also used to determine the quantities for the cost calculation and further evaluations. Upon completion of a project, the asset manager has a substantial benefit from the data. However, this is not possible without precise definitions.

The models' scope and the level of the detail are different according to the project phase. Before the project starts, the level of geometry (LOG) and level of information (LOI) require a precise specification by the stakeholders.

Employer information requirements

When a project is implemented using the BIM planning method, the EIR is at the beginning. The description and exact definition of all information needed for digital project handling have been specified in a project user manual and made available to all stakeholders in a printed form. What if all of these parameters exist in a single database? 

Quality assurance for the employer

Employer's quality requirements


BIMQ offers the following options for checking the quality requirements in a BIM discipline model:

  • Creation of validation-rule files according to actors & phases
  • Import of generated validation-rule files in BIM checking software
  • Quality control against the EIR
  • Export of BCF file to correct the BIM models in the original BIM software

EIR components


Who? - BIM-Manger, BIM manager, BIM coordinator, BIM designer // architect, structural engineer, building technician, road designer

When? - Approval planning, implementation planning // Q-Check every 14 days // Coordination every 7 days

What? - Architectural model, structural model // with attributes such as load-bearing /non-load-bearing; external/internal; fire resistance class

What for? - visualization, quantity take-off, collision detection

How? - ArchiCAD®, Autodesk® Revit®, Solibri®, Simple BIM, Tekla BIMsight®, FZK Viewer

BIMQ for the employer


Creation of guidelines in BIMQ for all project participants according to actors / Regular updates of the guidelines
