A presentation given by Richard Waterhouse, CEO of NBS/ RIBA Enterprises Ltd at Ecobuild 2016 on the future of BIM.
BIM – the NBS definition
A Building Information Model is a rich information model, consisting of potentially multiple data sources, elements of which can be shared across all stakeholders and be maintained across the life of a building from inception to recycling (cradle to cradle). The information model can include contract and specification properties, personnel, programming, quantities, cost, spaces and geometry.

This whole sector adoption of BIM will put us at the vanguard of a new digital construction era and position the UK to become the world leaders in BIM.“ Francis Maude Minister for the Cabinet Office
