It is estimated that some £2bn per annum can be saved through the widespread adoption of Building Information Modelling. Central government departments, such as the Cabinet Office and Business Innovations and Skills, are embedding the use of BIM across centrally procured public construction projects. The construction sector is heavily influenced by direct and indirect levers from the public sector, around 30% of the industry output is procured by the public sector. Â The power of new technologies, information sharing and data can bring major efficiencies to the maintenance, operation and energy management of constructed assets. There is potential to improve the operations and construction of assets by embedding BIM in all activities - planning, cost management, facilities management and reporting.
The Government Construction Strategy and BIS BIM Strategy have set out the drivers for adoption as:
So how is the public sector and construction industry shaping up ahead of the digital switch over to the 2016 BIM procurement mandate? Central and Local Government are now utilising procurement portals to improve the delivery of projects, provide transparency on workloads and engage with industry. Â BIM technologies and tools are driving a cultural change â€“ one of greater collaboration and knowledge sharing. New methods of working are supporting more effective management of information, throughout a project lifecycle, and better whole life performance of facilities and assets. Poor performance is quickly shown up by data and information can deliver new insights into soft landings, health and safety and energy efficiency. The government mandate has set a requirement to strengthen the public sectorâ€™s capability in BIM implementation with the aim that all central government departments will be adopting, as a minimum, collaborative Level 2 BIM by 2016. This is vital to future projects and the smart cities agenda. New methodologies can predict capacity demand through careful integration of different data sets and ready access to information.
'Industry has responded rapidly and positively with large scale adoption of BIM... it is a key agent for economic growth in both domestic and international markets.'
For the construction industry and suppliers BIM compliance is quickly becoming unavoidable, especially if companies want to retain established business relationships. Digitalised construction is being used on a global scale, not just the UK, and competitors are already upskilling. BIM is increasingly being recognised as a major force to drive both growth and increased competitiveness. Â The construction industry is delivering joined-up infrastructure for education, residential, communities, transport and healthcare projects. So how can the public sector and construction industry maximize BIM techniques in practice?
Business Information Modelling: A Revolution in Public Sector Projects will explore how significant improvements in value, costs and carbon performance can be achieved through the use of open, sharable asset information.
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.
