Fired up by the power of BIM

BIM events seem to make people buzz. It may be the mix of people – contractors next to architects next to quantity surveyors next to clients – or the evangelism of its proponents; it may be the pleasurable sensation of observing people ‘get it’ as they see how much time it shaves off projects, or the money it saves, or the jobs it has helped win, or the mistakes it has prevented.

Last week’s RICS BIM conference was no exception – a whole crowd of fired-up delegates.

Take-up is on the up; the latest NBS BIM survey shows adoption of BIM has more than doubled since 2010 (page 10). Next step is to get more people to realise it’s not about the software. Here is an area the construction industry can make inroads quickly and feel the benefits almost immediately.
