Interserve secures BIM trial project

Interserve has won a landmark project to trial the use of building information modeling, cabinet office minister Francis Maude has revealed.

The contractor has been awarded the 180-cell extension of Cookham Wood prison in Kent, one of two BIM level 2 projects being run by the government.

It will involve a set of models being created by the various disciplines within the supply chain and linked together to provide a combined set of information during the project’s construction and to manage it post-occupancy.

The government will establish 13 regional BIM hubs as part of its efforts to mandate BIM on projects by 2016.
