Pinterest in BIM – why the Govt mandated BIM and it’s subsequent implementation

This post is still work in progress as I endeavour to create my BIM Pinterest. As Government websites seem devoid of such images, I needed a site with the appropriate images hence I’ve created my own on my website.  So this should be read in conjunction with my new Pinterest.

The first is the Low Carbon Construction Final Report by the Innovation and Growth Team. Recommendation 6:14:

That Government should mandate the use of Building Information Modelling methodology for central Government projects with a value greater than £50 million.

This was followed in March 2011 by the publication of the Building Information Modelling (BIM) Working Party Strategy Paper which had the following hypothesis as the basis for the group’s work:

Government as a client can derive significant improvements in cost, value and carbon performance through the use of open sharable asset information

Two months later the Government’s Construction Strategy was published and following through on the recommendation in te Low Carbon Construction Report by mandating the use of BIM. Strategic Objective point 2:32
Government will require fully collaborative 3D BIM (with all project and asset information, documentation and data being electronic) as a minimum by 2016.
