LEGO Architecture meets BIM – Part 31: Handover Information


So this series finally draws to a close (or at least for now!). We have been publishing blog pieces in this series since March 2016, however the journey for this project started way back in early 2015. Its been a fun project to work on but at the same time massively time consuming and challenging. In many ways it reflects real life projects!

Of course the main aim was to inspire others to see that BIM really can be child’s play if you set your mind to it. Is every project going to adopt all these processes? No. But that’s not the point. The aim here is to demonstrate that thinking digitally can lead to better outputs and ultimately better outcomes.

Is this the last blog in the LEGO series?

So whilst the writing of blog pieces comes to an end, at least for now, we still want the project to be used by others. So this final blog piece in the series is about sharing the files we have created along the journey. We want others to take them and use them as they see fit. However we have a small list of conditions for using them:

  1. If you present any of the material we would ask that Bond Bryan Digital are credited with the original work produced.
  2. If you come up with a new idea for using the material provided, then we would be grateful if you would share any material created back with us. Ideally we would like some images and words to publish but we are happy to write something if you give us enough information about the process used. Of course you will receive credit on the blog for any work published.
  3. If you find any errors in the material created that you find let us know please. All information is provided in good faith and it’s inevitable that there will be one or two minor issues we missed! We will endeavour to correct any mistakes as soon as we can.

The Handover Information

So here are the files:

CM – Combined Models

CR – Clash Rendition

DR – Drawings (all PDFs)

IE – Information Exchange

M3 – Models

RP – Reports (PDF)

SH – Schedules (PDF unless otherwise noted)



There is so much this blog series hasn’t covered including collection of field data, Virtual Reality (VR), product data templates, environmental analysis, people flow movement, health and safety and security to name just a few more uses for the model we created.

The fact we haven’t covered everything is the beauty of BIM, there really is so much that can be done with a model that has followed a BIM process. No project will ever have every scenario covered (although some go an awful long way with extensive uses) but hopefully this blog series nudges a few more into either starting their BIM journey or taking their BIM journey forward.

I would just like to finish by thanking all of those who have contributed to the blog. You know who you are! The blog series wouldn’t have been possible without you.

I’d also like to thank (blame!) Jared Banks (Shoegnome) and Nathan Hildebrandt (Fulton Trotter Architects) for pushing me to do the series in the first place!

So now it has come time to move on from the LEGO series and tackle something completely different. Watch this space!
