Centre for Digital Built Britain completed its five-year mission and closed its doors at the end of September 2022

This website remains as a legacy of the achievements of our five-year foundational journey towards a digital built Britain

The Centre of Digital Built Britain in partnership with the UK BIM Alliance invites proposals to conduct a research project to investigate BIM maturity and benefits tools evaluation.

In collaboration with UK BIM Alliance, we are pleased to release a call for proposals to commission a piece of work to evaluate existing tools that assess BIM maturity and identify the benefits (return on investment) from using BIM in projects.

The evaluation will require consultation to understand industry (including client) requirements. This will deliver a clear picture highlighting available tools and their application; and identify any gaps in provision.

The evaluation will ultimately help organisations to understand where they are benefitting from adopting BIM and to identify areas in which improved use of digital information management will deliver additional benefits.
