Managing Bimplus projects is more than just creating and deleting projects. The project administrator is also responsible for selecting and assigning roles to project members, controlling communication between project members, and managing the specialist models of the project and the associated documents and files.

Managing project members

The project administrator creates the list of project members, adding all planning partners involved to this list. By assigning different roles, the project administrator controls the members’ access rights. If a planning partner is no longer involved in a project, the project administrator removes this planning partner from the project.

For details, see "Appointing project members".

Managing the building model

Managing the building model of a Bimplus project plays a central role in cooperative planning based on Bimplus. Therefore, this topic is covered in a separate chapter, where you learn how to upload planning data to Bimplus and handle planning states (see “Uploading specialist models to Bimplus and managing these models”).

Managing documents and other files

In addition to the model data of the building model, you can upload other documents and files in any format to Bimplus so that the other project members can view or download these documents and files. You can do this for every project.

For details, see “Uploading and managing other documents”.
