Welcome!

Hi, I’m Dan Rossiter MCIAT, and welcome to my award-winning blog “There’s No BIM Like Home“.

In October 2015 I moved into my first home. When I did, I was amazed at how unstructured my home’s information was. To make sense of all of this information and structure it into a more usable format using Building Information Modelling (BIM). Through BIM, I have produced an information model of my home, filled enough information to inform decisions about how it’s operated and managed.

Producing this information model has provided me with several benefits. By following the BIM Level 2 process, I have several well structured graphical models, information, and documentation about my home to support day-to-day decision making. Thanks to my information model, I can manage my home quicker, safer and easier than ever before.

This information and its information containers have been developed to meet my needs, in compliance with relevant good practice, National, European and International standards for producing construction information. All of my information containers are freely downloadable from the ‘BIM Level 2 Outputs’ menu tab above.

If you want to understand why I did all this, then please read my Prologue.
