Data-rich 3D models allow for supreme optioneering which streamlines the delivery process and brings efficiency savings in materials, time and costs to the construction process.
We set out our global BIM strategy in 2010 and we use the technology widely.
Now, our Smart Infrastructure team is working with the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office to grow BIM capability in six middle-income countries, transferring knowledge from lessons learned from using BIM in the UK and to share global examples of best practice.
We’ve developed a maturity index to help each partner country plot their BIM journey. Ten months on from the start of the project, Vietnam is implementing its BIM strategy, Colombia has established a BIM working group, Peru has published a BIM-specific decree, and Mexico is working towards implementing ISO 19650, the international BIM standard.
