UK BIM Alliance at Digital Construction Week

Posted by

UK BIM Alliance Partners with Digital Construction Week for Official Launch & BIM Level 2 Seminar Series.

An industry alliance has been set up with the aim of driving awareness, education and adoption of BIM Level 2 across the wider industry over the next four years, providing the foundations for a shift to BIM Level 3 towards 2025.

To help industry get up to speed with the challenges of adopting and implementing BIM Level 2 and help the industry continue its journey the UK BIM Alliance will be running a full two-day seminar programme at this year’s Digital Construction Week exhibition and conference. Taking place within DCW’s ‘BIM Village’ the seminar series will be completely free to attend. With special guest presentations from David Philp and Anne Kemp who will also be speaking on the mainstage.

Set to be officially launched in October of this year during Digital Construction Week, the “UK BIM Alliance” will provide a point of reference for built environment companies of all disciplines, with a view to enabling and supporting their BIM journeys. Building on the activity of the UK BIM Task Group over the past four years, it will focus on transitioning from mobilisation for BIM Level 2 to creating ‘business as usual’ for the entire industry – and not just for the centrally procured public sector projects.


The UK BIM Alliance launch will take place at Digital Construction Week’s exclusive Westminster Reception. With presentations from the BIM Task Groups Head of BIM, David Philp and the UKBA’s Chair Anne Kemp along with the Cabinet Office’s Head of Construction David Hancock.

Anne Kemp, speaking on behalf of the transition team, said: “Upon its launch in October, the UK BIM Alliance will provide clear, guiding leadership for industry on BIM Level 2 which makes the true benefits – the cost and waste reductions; the increased productivity and competitiveness – easily understandable and obtainable for all. This will build on, and remain aligned with the Government’s programme for publicly procured projects”
