The Chief State Expert Reviewer of Russia presented "Methodological Recommendations for the Preparation of the Information Model of the Capital Construction Object to be Submitted for Consideration to FAU Glavgosexpertiza of Russia in Connection with the State Expert Review of Design Documentation and Assessment of the Information Model of the Capital Construction Object".

As follows from the document, the Methodological Recommendations are drawn up in order to implement a unified approach to the content and design of the design documentation, engineering survey results and information model of the capital construction facility submitted to Glavgosexpertiza of Russia for further conformity assessment.

The Recommendations provide the basic requirements to the composition and content of the IM, which may differ in scope and sequence of their implementation depending on the tasks to be solved in the design of the object and which should take into account the variety of structural systems, design solutions and materials of building structures, engineering systems, as well as the possibility of forming the IM using alternative realizing software.

The recommendations have been developed taking into account the requirements of legislative and normative-technical acts, as well as the existing practice of information model evaluation.

The recommendations are methodological in nature and allow efficient preparation of IM for peer review by summarizing the information provided in the regulatory framework.

The Recommendations contain codes of color solutions of systems and networks of engineering and technical support of IM, designed for visual assessment of the relationship between volume-planning and engineering solutions.

These Recommendations are intended for submitting IM in the form of an object-oriented model for expert assessment of compliance with the requirements of technical regulations, sanitary and epidemiological requirements, environmental protection requirements, requirements for state protection of cultural heritage objects, requirements for safe use of atomic energy, industrial safety requirements, requirements for reliability and safety of electric power systems and electric power facilities, requirements for antiterrorist protection of the facility, other requirements established by legislation, the task of the developer or technical customer for design, results of engineering surveys of electric power systems and electric power facilities, anti-terrorist security requirements of the facility, other requirements established by law, the developer's or technical customer's design assignment, and the results of engineering surveys.

These Recommendations can be applied to the development of the IM design task.

It should be noted that the presented document is temporary and applies to the construction of new capital construction facilities without taking into account possible additional requirements to the IM developed during the reconstruction of capital construction facilities.
