Are you tiring of the mind-boggling lengths that many organisations are going to in their efforts to convince us of their expertise and compliance?</p>\n<p>Perhaps all the <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BIM_Wash">\'BIM Wash\'</a> is stopping you from doing the simple things that you need to prepare and protect your business. So maybe now is a good time to take a brief step back, understand what the mandate actually says and most importantly, what it means to you.</p>\n<p>"BIM is not a \'one-size-fits-all\' process"</p>\n<p>\'The Mandate\' was first stated in the "Government Construction Strategy" published by the Cabinet Office in May 2011. It was set out in clause 2.32 (extracted below) and reads as follows:</p>\n<p>Things have moved on considerably since 2011, with clearly defined standards, support and certification all now available. The policy provided the industry with a 5 year window in which to ready itself for BIM. Now 4 years in, the 2016 deadline is fast approaching.</p>\n<p>But does any of this apply to you? And if so, how should you respond?</p>\n<p>Some simple questions might help you decide:</p>\n<p>\n</p><ul><li>Do I carry out any work on projects relying on public funds? With public funding of one sort or another involved in half of UK construction, the answer is likely to be \'yes\' for all but the jobbing builder working solely for domestic customers. Look back over the last 12 months to identify projects involving <a href="https://www.gov.uk/search">government departments, government agencies</a> (there are lots of these), local authorities, healthcare trusts, infrastructure, etc. </li>\n\t<li>Do I need to pre-qualify for any projects, public or private? The most used industry pre-qualification portals, such as <a href="http://www.constructionline.co.uk/static/news/2013/Links3_PAS91_dec2013.html#.Vg6aMPlVikp">Constructionline</a>, have introduced BIM as part of their assessment frameworks. Therefore, an increasing number of major clients in both the public and private sector will now expect you to demonstrate BIM capability. Best practice guidance on pre-qualification - including BIM - is provided in PAS91. Just look at <a href="https://www.pas91construction.co.uk/">the portal for examples of the 100\'s of major clients signing up to use it.</a>\n</li>\n\t<li>Will I fall behind my competitors without BIM? Your clients are continually looking to achieve more for less, to reduce their own risk and improve the reliability of their supply chain to deliver. BIM and collaborative working have now joined Quality, Health &amp; Safety and Environmental management as issues on which clients will judge their suppliers. Without the right credentials in these aspects, your competition will win more work at your expense. The recent survey for <a href="http://www.ukconstructionweek.com/">UK Construction Week</a> revealed that 84% of respondents are already using or have plans to use BIM.</li>\n</ul><p>If you find yourself answering \'yes\' to any of these questions, then you can be sure that BIM is likely to have an impact on your business.</p>\n<p>But that does not necessarily mean you have to comply with all of the requirements of the various \'Level 2\' documents. Interpreting the mandate and various BIM standards before applying them in a way that is appropriate to your business is vital. BIM is not a \'one-size-fits-all\' process.</p>\n<p>For independent advice and reliable guidance on how to respond, please <a href="http://bimcert.org/Contact">contact us</a> direct.</p>\n</div>', u'entities': [{u'count': 1, u'name': u'BIM'}, {u'count': 1, u'name': u'Health & Safety and Environmental'}, {u'count': 1, u'name': u'Cabinet Office'}, {u'count': 1, u'name': u'UK'}, {u'count': 1, u'name': u'UK Construction Week'}], u'provider_name': u'Bimcert', u'type': u'html', u'description': u"Posted on October 02, 2015 13:34 Do you find it difficult to find an article that doesn't refer to the Government's '2016 BIM Mandate'?
