Building Information Modelling is fast becoming the dynamic force in construction strategy, driven by the UK Government mandate that BIM will be used on all public sector projects from 2016.


Government Soft Landings is a complementary approach to ensure full engagement of all key stakeholders in the building lifecycle process; “alignment of the needs of the end users with those who design and construct facilities”

In assessing the above it is important to consider two important facts around BIM implementation

1. Avoid over complexity – BIM is designed to improve efficiency across all areas. It is to support management decision making. Leave technical complexity in the Supply Chain; generally this is where it currently sits !

2. Technology is purely an enabler to support business objectives. The greatest value from BIM comes through process review, collaborative working and focus on business objectives. BIM is a tool to provide greater capability; nothing more
