Constructing Plain Language Pledge to tackle BIM confusion


The UK BIM Alliance has been working with Dan Rossiter, the European and International Standards convenor for BIM terminology, to shape how the Alliance can lead by example in championing plain language

Dan Rossiter said: “Through my role at BRE, I have made it my mission to instil plain language into our BIM services. My influence so far has resulted in positive feedback from our clients on how much easier it is to digest this new information. As such, I felt that these principles should be used more widely and turned to the UK BIM Alliance to disseminate this message.”

Dan submitted his idea to the Alliance as a project. With the assistance of other Alliance members, ‘The Constructing Plain Language Pledge’ was developed and shared for consultation.

Built Environment Lead at The Institute of Engineering, Rick Hartwig added: “As part of the UK BIM Alliance’s processes, we are keen to ensure that our projects are open, transparent and accessible. Anyone who saw the original draft of this document will appreciate how much influence the consultation period has had on its development. Within the UK BIM Alliance, opinions do matter!”
