From the 6th April 2017, BIM was introduced into Scottish central government (Review of Scottish Public Sector Procurement in Construction, 22 October 2013) with a view to encouraging adoption across the public sector. The objective is that, where appropriate (Scottish Procurement Policy Note SPPN 01/2017, 8 March 2017), projects across the Scottish public sector adopt BIM level 2. As well as the Scottish central government requiring BIM, most private clients are also now demanding BIM.

So, what is BIM? What is BIM Level 2? Will this change the way we work? This seminar will help to answer these questions for you.

The Aim:

This presentation provides an initial guide to understanding all the standards that will affect your organisation going forward when implementing BIM and what guidance you can put in place for your staff. You will gain an appreciation of all the standards contained within the Pillars of BIM, as well as a few other key standards and guidance documents which construction companies should be adopting as a matter of course.

The Outline:

  • BIM, the enabler for a more efficient industry
  • What are the Pillars of BIM and how do they affect me?
  • What do you need to comply with right now?
  • Other standards you should know about
  • How to get projects and staff up to speed
  • 15 mins Q&A/wrap up

Intended Participants: All levels of staff as well as those responsible for training and development in their organisation.
