BIM4SME have announced the launch of the RICS BIM4SME Awards 2016 mini-site. The site showcases last year’s winners and provides details for this year’s event including submissions, sponsorship and the information about the big night itself
Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)are critical to the success of Level 2 BIM in the UK. They are the engine room of the sector and deserve more recognition for their efforts to adopt and implement BIM in their projects.
The RICS BIM4SME Awards 2016, held on 29th September, will recognise and promote the SME role and achievements in the UK’s adoption of BIM. These awards will spread awareness, promote best practice and highlight the tremendous opportunities BIM presents to small and medium businesses.
The BIM4SME and RICS teams have been working hard together to make this year’s event bigger and better than 2015 and want to take this opportunity to showcase that SMEs are at the forefront of successful BIM implementation for their business, project teams and clients they engage with.
Overview for entrants
Entries are invited from all, regardless of whether the SME is a member of RICS.
The case studies are discipline agnostic and carry a wide berth encompassing the entire AECO (Architectural, Engineering, Construction and Operations) industry. This is about SMEs – it should demonstrate their engagement and capture the knowledge of the whole BIM process. It should establish the SMEs’ ability to dovetail into a BIM project at any stage, contributing and collaborating actively with increase in efficiency for all the stakeholders.
Newforma, Exactal, and Autodesk have re-signed as sponsors from continuing their support of last year’s event, with more sponsors likely to be announced shortly. If you would like to sponsor the event, please contact Steve Faulkner via email@example.com
Finally, BIM4SME would like as many of you as possible to join them on the awards night to celebrate the success of SMEs, and enjoy great networking at a fantastic venue.
See you all on September 29th, 2016.
