How Building Information Modelling (BIM) is to shape the delivery of Infrastructure Projects Leading to 2030
Looking back at the lead up to the April 2016 UK Government BIM mandate, a lot of what was defined was clearly very ambitious, however with technology still catching up, challenging to achieve. The difference now is software capability and hardware capacity has caught up with that ambition.
The industry perception of BIM has also matured, no longer do we look at it as a cost-effective delivery mechanism for providing and maintaining asset data. We now use BIM to solve broader social, economic, and environmental challenges.
As its implementation has widened through much of the sector, we can begin to understand its scalability and impact at different levels, from regional local authorities and small practices to central government departments and large contractors.
With the fast-paced change in Environmental issues, technology and societal needs and expectations, the sector is under greater pressure than ever to innovate and evolve rapidly.
We’re now entering a new digital era in the construction industry, a period where we must use
technology to make a difference.
Following the release of the Infrastructure and Projects Authority’s ‘Transforming Infrastructure Performance (TIP): Roadmap to 2030’ publication, this whitepaper will explore how BIM can help achieve particular focus areas and goals set out by the strategy. This will be specific to the BIM process/standard methods and procedures, and high level when exploring options and implementation techniques.
