Home Nations Working Group

Chair: Nicola Pearson, CDBB

Ensuring that the benefits of effective information management are shared across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland is the remit of the Home Nations Working Group (HNWG). Formed in 2018, it brings together the four UK national BIM programmes to develop a consistent approach and to promote our vision of a digital built Britain. The HNWG will provide a platform to:

  • Share experiences in the implementation of BIM;
  • Co-ordinate the sharing of BIM knowledge and collateral across programmes;
  • support the UK transition towards ISO19650-1 and 2 with clear and unified messaging to industry;
  • manage the interface between the Centre for Digital Built Britain, and the various devolved UK government BIM and digital built environment programmes.

BIM Interoperability Expert Group

Interoperability is vital to ensure that BIM continues to thrive and deliver key benefits – the BIM Interoperability Expert Group invited industry stakeholders from a wide range of expertise and experience to input into a report to help us to continue to support UK BIM adoption. The report is due Spring 2020.
