The aim of this research is the definition of a control planning for the reinforced concrete structures in place and the organization of all this information with the aid of BIM methodology. To better illustrate the process of information flow through BIM system, structural controls and the control plan have been applied to a case study concerning a new building. The BIM model contains all the information necessary for the design, scheduling, testing, construction, operation, management and maintenance of the structural parts of the building. The use of BIM model with relevant information and control sheet has enabled us to exploit the full potential of BIM during the construction phase; its main value consists in granting immediate access to as-built/as-operated building information. We created two models: the first identifies the technical elements that make up the building (LOD 100); while the second is characterized by a detailed definition (LOD 400). The frequencies systematization, organized according to the flow charts, has allowed the definition of a Gantt chart integrated with the control sheets. Controls referred to initial controls (i.e., acceptance of materials), follow-up controls and final controls. It is also possible to control and automatically update the final technical item tolerances.
