BIM REGIONS – (Regional Hubs)
“-The home of Digital Construction”
As of today the BIM Regional Hubs are to be re-branded and re-launched as the BIM Regions.
This change is to reflect our desire to move forward in building the regional network with a refreshed vision and purpose.
Whilst UK BIM Level 2 has been on the industry agenda for some time, there is still a huge amount of work to do. Raising BIM awareness and promoting education across all sectors and all stakeholders. This is to enable everyone to work effectively using digital information and tools, in the design, manufacture, construction and operation of built assets.
Coming up during our collaboration with Digital Construction week in October, http://www.digitalconstructionweek.com/home, we will share further details on our plans for the future as BIM Regions and Regional BIM Champs.
As part of our refreshed strategy we are actively reaching out across industry to engage with partners and collaborators to help drive the BIM agenda forward. We recognise that the BIM4Communities groups are a key element in this and we will be working more closely with them over the coming months.
In conclusion, our vision is for a digitally enabled world-class AECO industry that takes a leading place in the global information economy. If you share this vision and want to work with us then just get in touch.
The BIM Regions (Regional Hubs) were set up in partnership with the Construction Industry Council and the BIM Task Group in 2012 to support the UK BIM programme.
The purpose of the Regions 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. Our regional groups provide a safe place where you can ask the “stupid” questions (there aren’t any!) and rub shoulders with people facing just the same challenges as you. We provide independent and impartial advice, occasional events, and networking support.
The Regions also provide a conduit for disseminating best practice on BIM, and providing feedback to the BIM Task Group and the 2016 legacy delivery team. The BIM Regions bridge the traditional industry silos, linking stakeholders across all roles and all stages of the asset lifecycle, providing a platform for true collaboration. The BIM Regions receive no government, central or BIM Task Group funding or support.
The BIM Regions have launched a collaboration initiative with Digital Construction Week, http://www.digitalconstructionweek.com/home
Our vision is for a digitally enabled world-class AECO industry that takes a leading place in the global information economy.
Our intent is to achieve 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 takes place as quickly and efficiently as possible.
