Building Information Modelling (BIM): The Path to 2016 Implementation: A full day conference programme featuring industry and academic experts
From 2016, Building Information Modelling (BIM) will be mandatory on all public sector contracts. There are various prerequisites that need to be in place, mostly in relation to process protocols and standards, before the UK Government’s ambitions for achieving the productivity and other improvements through BIM can be achieved.
At Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) experts are, in partnership with our industry clients and standard setting organisations, developing knowledge on the implementation of BIM practices.
Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a managed approach to the collection and exploitation of information across a project. At its heart is a computer-generated model containing all graphical and tabular information about the design, construction and operation of the asset.
One of the key factors in achieving successful supply-chain integration in the construction sector is the accuracy, effective flow and intelligent use of information which BIM will encourage.
