IET factfile: Accelerating the adoption of Building Information Modelling (BIM) in the Built Environment

The utilisation of Building Information Modelling (BIM) is becoming increasingly common on construction projects. This will accelerate as we approach the UK government’s target for all government-funded projects over £5m to be BIM enabled by 2016.

BIM is increasingly being used to improve the specification, usage and delivery of information relating to construction projects and through to the operational life of the assets. Implementing BIM should not be thought of as solely a technology/software activity – successful implementation relies upon application of change processes and strategic thinking, so organisations new to the use of BIM will need to carefully plan out their strategy before they start on technical implementation.
