This paper is intended to explore the potential of the Building Information Modelling (BIM) methodologies to be applied to the various stages of the construction process, particularly as far as international guidelines and best practices supporting virtuous operating flows are concerned: the IT component, mostly graphic during the design phase, is mainly integrated and renewed in an alphanumeric format, and becomes an integrating part of the management and maintenance of the artefacts. The case studies developed in collaboration with the Building and Logistics Service of the Polytechnic of Turin substantiate such procedures, which, even if they are not widely spread as of yet, reach interoperability targets: integrated approaches to information sharing processes aimed at defining adequate intervention schedules on both large and small scales, through the definition of strategies aimed at restricting the enforcement of incorrect solutions.
