BIM adoption in the UK

by | Apr 5, 2016 | Consultancy, Facilities Management, Project Management

From April 2016 all UK Government departments require suppliers to demonstrate effective collaborative Building Information Modelling (BIM) Level 2 maturity through delivering defined and compliant information and data on projects.

BIM brings together all of the information about every component of a building, in one place. It makes it possible for any speciality to access that information for any purpose.

The UK Government has launched public resources as an official point of reference for clients, designers, contractors, trade suppliers, manufacturers, maintainers, operators and users to understand how to use Building Information Modelling and data to improve productivity and reduce waste.

Work has been undertaken over the past four years in a joint UK Government – Industry Working Group called the BIM Task Group to provide Standards, Guides, Case Studies and shared experiences to help all stakeholders with their BIM adoption Journey.

It will be interesting to see how this requirement affects adoption of BIM in Ireland.
