Building Information Modelling, or BIM, has already made a huge impact in the way we build. Not only does it ensure a better building quality, efficiency and sustainability, but the adoption of BIM brings firms additional benefits such as lower costs, better resource management and delivering projects on time. Couple your commitment to adopt this methodology with the attainment of company or personal BIM Level 2 Certification and you’ll gain recognition for meeting the highest UK construction standards
It is not a surprise then that the UK government mandates for all centrally procured public projects to be BIM Level 2 compliant and include all digital documentation and asset information. The NBS National BIM Report 2017, shows that 62% of the Construction Industry is already leveraging BIM workflows, but there is also a large percentage that have yet to adopt or are unsure how.
Does this mean that all SMEs and private projects do not need to implement BIM? Not at all, though not mandated in the private sector, the benefits of adopting BIM outweigh the costs and can give your firm a competitive edge over other suppliers and be the difference between winning a bid or not.
