The Regional BIM Hubs and Digital Construction Week 20th-22nd October 2015
The Regional BIM Hubs were set up by the Construction Industry Council in 2012 to support the UK BIM programme.
The idea of the Hubs is to provide regional and local networks where anyone can get help and guidance about what BIM is, what Level 2 means and where to begin. The Hubs provide a safe environment where you can ask the “stupid” questions (there aren’t any!) and rub shoulders with people facing just the same challenges as you.
The Hubs also provide a conduit for disseminating best practice on BIM, and providing feedback to the BIM Taskgroup and the 2016 legacy delivery team. The Hubs bridge the traditional industry silos, linking stakeholders across all roles and all stages of the asset lifecycle, providing a platform for true collaboration.
The Hubs have launched collaboration with Digital Construction Week, http://www.digitalconstructionweek.com/home
This collaboration between Digital Construction Week and the Regional BIM Hubs marks a step change in our evolution as a network. We are developing a refreshed strategy and vision, for a world-class industry, empowered by BIM and enabled through collaboration. Our network covers the entire UK and now includes CITA from Dublin.
We fully recognise that to help deliver Level 2 across the industry and move forward into the Level 3/ Digital Built Britain agenda, we need to raise our game. We intend to broaden our base of support, work with a number of high profile partners across the industry, and to extend the reach of the message – transforming our industry into working with collaborative digital environments.
Our mission and intent is to achieve a critical mass for BIM adoption in the UK, reaching out across our industry and beyond, to ensure that the digital revolution is both inevitable and happens as quickly as possible.
DCW will mark the launch of the first part of this strategy. We will be holding clinics, workshops, TED style presentations and more. Watch this space! We will be working with the other BIM4 groups as well, to deliver a connected, joined up message.
