The United Kingdom (UK) Government envisions a built sector that delivers whole life value by adopting Building Information Modelling (BIM) strategies in its approach to asset construction and management. The application of BIM has been challenging in the facilities management sector especially for existing built assets, with UK’s stock at over 80%. Through a case study of a public sector BIM refurbishment project, this paper reports the role UK BIM standards and New Rules of Measurements 3 play in asset collection and classification for facilitating lifecycle cost evaluation. It delivers an NRM taxonomy that potentially unlocks BIM for lifecycle cost evaluation which is enabled by the provision of structured asset information.
