An industry alliance will be launched in October as part of Digital Construction Week to drive the adoption of BIM Level 2 across the wider industry over the next four years, setting up the foundations for a shift to BIM Level 3 towards 2025.
The UK BIM Alliance will be running a full two-day seminar programme at this year’s Digital Construction Week within the ‘BIM Village’, featuring special guest presentations from BIM Task Groups Head of BIM, Davi Philp; the UKBA’s Chair, Anne Kemp; and the Cabinet Office’s Head of Construction, David Hancock.
Building on the activity of the UK BIM Task Group over the past four years, the alliance will focus on making BIM Level 2 a regular part of the entire construction industry – rather than just part of centrally procured public sector projects.
The official launch of the UK BIM Alliance will take place at Digital Construction Week’s exclusive Westminster Reception.
Anne Kemp, speaking on behalf of the transition team, commented: “Upon its launch in October, the UK BIM Alliance will provide clear, guiding leadership for industry on BIM Level 2 which makes the true benefits – the cost and waste reductions; the increased productivity and competitiveness – easily understandable and obtainable for all. This will build on, and remain aligned with the Government’s programme for publicly procured projects.”
