Today marks the deadline that all central UK Government departments are delivering the milestone that requires tendering suppliers to demonstrate effective collaborative 3D BIM Level 2 maturity through delivering defined and compliant information and data on projects.
“The successful delivery of the Government Construction Strategy’s (GCS) Level 2 BIM objectives represents “an internationally unparalleled achievement on the journey towards the digitalization of the built environment sector”, says BIM Task Group chairman Mark Bew MBE.
“BIM will become a required UK standard across the entire built environment and our message to all stakeholders is: join us and grasp this incredible opportunity to reduce cost and waste while driving productivity and competitiveness.”
Achievement of the mandate has allowed the BIM Task Group, together with the Government Construction Board and the Client BIM Delivery Group, to reaffirm its unwavering commitment to encouraging, supporting and enabling full BIM adoption across the industry.
The resource acts as an official point of reference for clients, designers, contractors, trade suppliers, manufacturers, maintainers, operators and users to understand how to use Building Information Modelling and data to improve productivity and reduce waste.
Work has been undertaken over the past four years in a joint UK Government – Industry Working Group called the BIM Task Group to provide Standards, Guides, Case Studies and shared experiences to help all stakeholders with their BIM adoption Journey.
Over the next six months the final documents and materials will be launched here starting with the standards. There will be regular updates through to the autumn of 2016 and we invite you to visit to see the new national and international guides and case study materials.
