The construction industry is undergoing a significant shift in how design and production are conducted. Building Information Modeling (BIM) has emerged as a key tool for coordinating information from all involved disciplines and providing a more holistic view of the construction process. However, effective coordination and communication between different professions remain major challenges that require new approaches to project management. Takt planning has gained increasing attention as a potential solution to improve traditional planning methods. Despite this, there is a lack of real-world studies exploring BIM and takt planning where information is structured according to takt planning. A takt planning structure for all BIM-models would bring a more holistic understanding of what is to be done, controlled, and reported back. To address this gap, this paper presents findings from a three-stage research process. Firstly, form a focus group of disciplines to find a shared structure to present the execution in a common way for design and construction in a lab environment at a conceptual level, secondly implementing it to the detailed design information for real -world case project in workshops and group meetings with the focus group and then thirdly, evaluate it in the case project with the site staff involved. The findings highlight the importance of a shared denominator to get a holistic approach to project management and enabling takt planning throughout all phases of construction, providing insights into its practical application and benefits for the construction industry
