BIM IN UNITED KINGDOM
The Government Construction Strategy in the United Kingdom was published by the Cabinet office on 31 May 2011. The report announced the Governments intention to require: collaborative 3D BIM (with all project and asset information, documentation and data being electronic) on its projects by 2016.
Essentially the UK Government has embarked with industry on a four-year program for sector modernisation with the key objective of reducing capital cost and the carbon burden from the construction and operation of the built environment by 20%. Central to these ambitions is the adoption of information rich Building Information Modelling (BIM) technologies, process and collaborative behaviors that will unlock new more efficient ways of working at all stages of the project lifecycle.
Is UK a referent in the adoption of BIM?
