BIM Roles and Responsibilities

Behind every machine, there is a man. Behind every successful BIM project, there is a competent BIM team.

To achieve the BIM goals identified in the BIM execution plan for your project, it is important to identify and prepare the team that is going to take part in it and whether there are necessary resources and skills available or not. So, how should a BIM team be structured? What skills are necessary for each role? What responsibilities does each member of the team must take? Following are some documents that will guide you while developing your BIM team.
