One of the tasks that we're asked to do is to create project-specific Request for Proposal (RFP) language for general contractors and subcontractors. The RFP stage is the perfect time to clearly communicate what you're trying to get out of the BIM process. It is critical that this section of your bidding / evaluation documents be project specific, so you can properly align your BIM project costs to the project demands.
In order for you to evaluate and update your current RFP documents, here are some useful elements of BIM project-specific RFP exhibits:
Of course, there are other elements that are not project specific. For example, we think it's still important to put a section for "Definitions" at the top of the document. Many people know about BIM, but there's going to be some bidders out there in the world who have never heard of it. While not project specific, you can educate them on BIM!
We hope this was useful for what you do. Contact us if you have input, questions, or would like to talk more.
