Supporting BIM in the UK

What is BIM? Building Information Modelling (BIM) is the “use of a shared digital representation of a built asset to facilitate design, construction and operation processes to form a reliable basis for decisions” (BS EN ISO 19650-1:2018). BIM facilitates early supply chain and operational team...
