This paper presents a case study of client-driven early BIM collaboration, where the client mandated the BIM and employed an independent BIM consultant to ensure successful implementation of BIM throughout all project stages. The case study demonstrates the idea of achieving maximum benefits of BIM by initiating a coordinated modelling process, in early project stages, using a partnering approach in a traditional procurement process. This approach also encouraged early involvement of the contractor in the design process and ensured interoperable modelling & collaboration process in a structured common data environment that continued throughout the project stages supporting several BIM applications. The author was part of the client�s BIM consultancy team that was tasked to ensure that an integrated and coordinated BIM process is successfully developed at the early design stage that would continue throughout the construction and facility management stages.
