This government strategy deadline for BIM is closing in quickly for the construction / building industry as 2016 approaches ever closer !
Are companies ready ?
In more detail:
The Government Construction Strategy 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 the construction industry on a four year programme 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 behaviours that will unlock new more efficient ways of working at all stages of the project life-cycle.
Osborn Design has already adopted the BIM CAD software Autodesk Revit to prepare for the increasing demand for 3D CAD models as the 2016 government deadline approaches.
If this is relevant to you – are you ready?
