The Annual BIM Conference: Multi-Disciplined Collaboration For Progress

The future has arrived, and it’s saving us money. Building Information Modelling (BIM) achieved a cost saving of £840 million on capital projects in 2013/14, through the Government’s BIM Level 2 initiative.

Initial estimations in the 2012 Building Information Modelling report, however, suggested  that  savings  of £2 billion per annum could be achieved through widespread use of BIM.

With levels of BIM uptake plateauing, according to the 2015 National BIM Survey, the potential benefits of BIM are not being fully exploited.

In addition to bolstering the economy, BIM provides the gateway to advancements  in  building  technology, the realisation of the ‘Internet of Things’ and improvements in the environmental sustainability of the construction industry.

Barriers such as lack of awareness and insufficient client demands must be overcome if these advantages are to be realised.
