Building Information Modelling - UK Plans

The UK government required fully collaborative 3D BIM on all centrally procured construction contracts in 2016.

Level 2 BIM is required immediately, the digital exchange format COBie UK 2012 has been prepared.

Level 3 BIM will be introduced shortly, this will use the same 3D model throught, increasing productivity.

The National BIM Library contains over 350 pre-configured generic objects covering all major building fabric systems such as walls, ceilings, roofs and floors.

The Green Overlay to the RIBA Outline Plan of Work aims to provide a framework for better embedding sustainability into the appraisal, briefing, design and construction process.
