The UK government has mandated that all centrally-funded work is to be undertaken using BIM by 2016 driving an ambitious strategy to become a world leader. All central government departments are embedding the use of BIM across centrally procured public construction projects.
Central and Local Government are now utilising procurement portals to improve the delivery of projects, provide transparency on workloads and engage with industry. How has value been achieved and costs reduced? What are the common challenges to avoid and how are they best overcome?
Exploring what both the public sector and construction industry can do to maximize BIM techniques in practice.
The great majority of projects using BIM so far have a client who is BIM-passive: not playing the role needed to optimise the project or the whole-life value of the asset created. Becoming a BIM-active client involves some changes and investment in methods, but the returns are substantial. Richard will set out what public clients need to do to avoid risks and maximise rewards.
New methods of working are supporting more effective management of information, throughout a project lifecycle, and better whole life performance of facilities and assets.
BIM is increasingly being recognised as a major force to drive both growth and increased competitiveness. The construction industry is delivering joined-up infrastructure for education, residential, communities, transport and healthcare projects.

Construction of The Bridgewater Hall commenced on 22 March 1993, but the idea of a new concert hall for Manchester dates back to the reconstruction of the Free Trade Hall in the 1950s after wartime bomb damage. The Free Trade Hall was home to the city’s famous Hallé orchestra and also hosted rock and pop concerts. However, despite holding great public affection, the 1850s Free Trade Hall was ill-equipped to respond to the rising standards of service and acoustic excellence demanded by performers and audiences.
