Realising the promise of BIM

Realising the promise of BIM

BIM helped UK Construction make cost savings of £840m in 2013/14 but it's estimated that fully adopted, the figure would be closer to £2bn. To truly realise the gains and become world leaders, whole sector adoption is necessary.

The fifth annual ICE BIM conference on October 21 will glean insight on how the sector is shaping up, exploring the benefits and challenges beyond the model, asking what can and can’t be achieved using BIM to operate and manage assets.

Mark Bew, Head of the UK Government BIM Task Group returns to Chair for the fifth year, and will be joined by Dr Anne Kemp, Chair of the BIM Action Group. Delegates will hear from experts who are maximising the potential of BIM in disciplines including health and safety, security, procurement, contracts and sustainability.

Key sessions will cover digital strategy, the need for an internal business common data environment and developing a data driven future, including case studies from London Underground, BAM Nuttall, and Laing O'Rourke.

The event forms part of a wider campaign by the Institution of Civil Engineers to drive industry transformation and meet the objectives of Construction 2025. A joined up approach to BIM will form a key part of that.
