BIM4SME is inviting small and medium size companies to come and explore its new website.
The new website has been designed to provide an easy flow and user-friendly experience with improved navigation and functionality throughout, allowing smaller companies to access information relevant to them and their BIM journey.
One of BIM4SME’s goals is to ensure communication of simple messages to help smaller organisations and sole traders understand the benefits of implementing a BIM strategy suitable to their business, their strategy and their current practice.
Widespread assumption still exists amongst those not making the steps towards the understanding of BIM. Many misplaced messages have been interpreted through the fast moving pace of BIM, such as it being a costly and time constrained exercise, that it’s only meant for bigger projects or that a change to being BIM enabled will mean the upheaval of current processes. BIM4SME is determined to communicate that this is not always the case for those smaller companies out there.
The website includes useful links which continue to be expanded upon, as well as case studies, technical information, event news and exclusive opportunities and discounts to BIM4SME members.
“The BIM4SME team understands that there are limited avenues for the sole trader or smaller practice to source simple and accessible BIM information” says Tim Platts, Chair. “There are practices and businesses out there that would like to consider BIM but it is still a fear for some. We hope with the publication of our recent Annual Report which looks at our activities and achievements in the last year and communication of developments yet to come, that more will join the network and also the core group, and the website will be just one starting point which could make a positive and useful difference.”
