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 UK BIM Framework has released a free resource to support the development of training content for building information modelling (BIM) aligned with current standards. The UK BIM Framework Learning Outcomes and other helpful resources are available on the UK BIM Framework website.

Based upon the BIM Academic Forum’s ‘Learning Outcomes Framework’ (2012), this completely refreshed schedule, updated for the BS EN ISO 19650 series, is the result of collaboration between academics, UK construction industry education professionals and the UK BIM Framework member organisations, the British Standards Institute (BSI), the Centre for Digital Built Britain (CDBB), and the UK BIM Alliance (UKBIMA).

The learning outcomes resource includes:

➢ Why information management using BIM is required, and its strategic context in the UK 

➢ The implications and value of information management using BIM for organisations 

➢ How information requirements are identified and communicated 

➢ How information is shared between organisations 

➢ Understanding the legal and security implications of the UK BIM Framework and its interfaces with other important processes such as health and safety management.

Nicola Pearson, Head of Skills and Knowledge Transfer for CDBB, said: “As many in the training and higher education sector are starting to plan courses for the new year, we are proud to be able to provide a much-requested update to 2012 Learning Outcomes Framework. We would like to thank all the educators and practitioners who supported its development. We are committed to supporting the growth of BIM capability in the UK, aligned to standards. The UK BIM Framework Learning Outcomes is a useful resource for those seeking training to evaluate if a course is aligned with the UK BIM Framework and the ISO 19650 series of standards.”

Dr Anne Kemp OBE, Chair of the UK BIM Alliance, said: “It is important that the UK BIM Framework supports industry needs, and we are committed to developing the guidance and resources needed to embrace the ISO 19650 series of standards, and help those transitioning from the original BS/PAS1192 series. The UK BIM Framework is based on but replaces and moves on from BIM Level 2. The UK BIM Framework represents an important step forward in the digital management of information for the whole life of a more integrated built environment.”

Ant Burd, Associate Director, Head of Built Environment at BSI, said: “I am pleased to see the various tools and resources that are being developed to support British standards as part of the UK BIM Framework. This learning outcome framework will undoubtedly help support the consistency of training around information management and building information modelling (BIM) which in turn will catalyse the built environment as it digitally transforms”.

UK BIM Framework Learning Outcomes is aligned with buildingSMART UK Chapter’s Professional Certification (PCERT)1, to be published later in 2020.
