The lack of real-time information about pipes and cables underground has often led to disruption to the UK’s roads, and its population. While information is available about where this infrastructure is located underground, a delay in receiving this information can lead to further disruption and costs. Noticing a need for real-time availability, a consortium involving the University of Leeds came to create a new way to share and access information.
Building Information Modelling (BIM) is going to transform the way that the architecture, construction, engineering and facilities management (FM) industries work together. This insight will look at the risks that are inherent in the adoption of BIM, in particular the need to address cyber security in the implementation of the collaborative processes and systems.
