Viewpoint - Tier2Tier

It has been recognised that the benefits of BIM will not be realised without the collaboration of the main contractor’s supply chain: Tier 2 and beyond.

There are significant barriers to this and it is unlikely that a Common Data Environment (CDE) for Level 2 BIM is achievable without overcoming them.

Tier2Tier is a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution that provides the Tier 2 specialist with an independent, controlled, bi-directional cloud-based micro collaboration portal, allowing the two way transfer of validated information from tender through to final account.

The envisaged service supports the goals of BSI B/555 Roadmap by facilitating controlled inputs, tender exchange, contract administration, automated payment transactions, change management and COBie data transfer.

This collaborative project addresses the obstacles to participation of the wider project supply chain in the CDEs required for project teams to attain Level 2 BIM Maturity.

This will be achieved by the re-examination of the business-to-business processes of tendering, invoicing, change management and payment, as well as using new “Big Data” and Social-graph approaches to manage multiple BIM projects.
