Project Roles

With such a signifi cant change in the effort behind a BIM-based project workfl ow, it’s also important to understand how this change affects the various roles and responsibilities for the project team. Project managers need to be able to predict staffi ng and time to complete tasks throughout the project phases and have relied on past precedent of staff and project types to do
this. Since a BIM-based project can signifi cantly alter the project workfl ow, many of the historic timetables for task completion are no longer valid. However, a BIM-based project can be broken down into a few primary roles that will allow you some level of predictability throughout the
various project phases. Although the specifi c effort and staffi ng will vary between offi ces (and even projects), there are some general roles that will need to be accounted for on every project.
There are three primary roles that should be considered on every BIM project:
Architect Generates design intent and coordinates issues such as materials, code compliance, wall types, spatial program, and so on.
Modeler Creates 2D or 3D content that directly represents the design intent.
Drafter Works with annotations, sheet layout, view creation, and detail creation.
These roles represent efforts and general tasks that you need to take into account on any Revit project. On a large project, these roles could also represent individual people, whereas on a smaller project they might be all the same person fulfi lling multiple roles. We’ll now explore each of these in more detail and discuss how these roles affect the project workfl ow
