‘There is enormous potential in the EIR management – a goldmine – for owners to recognize its importance.’
Employer’s Information Requirements = EIR
At Exigo we specialize in EIR owners consultancy. In short, an EIR document specifies the information requirements of the client to the contractor. The EIR document is set up already in the first performance phases and forms an important document for the further course of the project.
We give you the assurance that your contracts will be created and implemented for your projects so that you get the best value for your money. We do this by, among other things, systematically ensuring that the architect and engineer complies with the agreements.
If the architect or engineer, for instance, fails to comply with the agreements and does not properly execute the 3D building models, the house of cards will tip over. The reason for this is that, nowadays, 3D building models are the basis for quantity calculations, offer lists, scheduling agreements, and profitability calculations. The quality of the 3D models is therefore a key success factor. We can help you to secure good quality 3D models for your construction project.
EIR management has an enormous potential
Only a few know how important a basic EIR agreement is. There is enormous potential in the EIR management – a goldmine – for owners to recognize its importance. Exceeding budgets and schedules during execution starts here. The EIR agreements must state reservations all potential errors in execution. This is to ensure that you as the owner don’t stay with the costs and trouble in the execution. The EIR agreements are the basis of the 3D models, and the first thing we look at in risk analysis of project material.
Working with multiple owners, we’ve come up with an overview of the challenges faced by owners most often in the context of preparing EIR agreements. These include the following:
- How should the agreements be made?
- What is the consequence if they are done wrong?
- Who owns the (3D) models?
- Who draws what?
- In what quality should the 3D models be?
- What information should be used?
- Should the 3D models be collision free?
- How should the 3D models prepare for operation?
BIM Exicution Plan = BEP
The EIR are the basis for the creation of the BEP. BEP is thereby the short version of BIM Exicution Plan. In practice, two types of BEP need to be drafted: Firstly, the BEP before conclusion of contract (by each applicant) and, secondly, the BEP after conclusion of contract (by the winner of the invitation to tender).
