Model Progression Matrix

The Model Progression Matrix (MPM) is intended to define the team members' roles and responsibilities on BIM-enabled projects. Depending on the size and scope of the project, a custom MPM may be defined. When no custom MPM exists, it is expected that the default table outlined below is followed.

Existing Conditions

When responsibility is assigned, it includes developing the model for both new and existing conditions unless otherwise noted in the project's BEP. This may include the reuse and updating of existing BIM data supplied by GSA.

Key

  • A - Architect
  • M - Mechanical Engineer
  • P - Plumbing Engineer
  • E - Electrical Engineer
  • S - Structural Engineer
  • AE - Architect / Engineer Team
  • GC - General Contractor and/or trade partners
  • SM - Scan & Modeling Team

In many cases one firm may have the responsibility of several disciplines. Assignment of disciplines (if in question) must be finalized as part of the BEP.
