UK Government - BIM
Towards the back end of last year I read a post at Revit Structure Learning Curve about the U.K government planning on following in the footsteps of the U.S with regards to BIM and IPD.
I also read a similar story at BD Online
So, I have been keeping my eyes open since March for the outcome of this report, and any public announcements.
I have since read that there will be a 3 month delay in this process, taking us back to at least June.
Once again thanks to Alan at Revit Structure Learning Curve
Here is what Alan writes.
"........The roll-out of Building Information Modelling across all public projects has met with difficulties after a government response to a report on its effectiveness has been delayed by three months. Paul Morrell, OBE FRICS HonFRIBA, UK Chief Construction Advisor to the UK Government, has confirmed it will be released in June........."
We all know what the U.K government is like, if we are lucky we might see the findings of this report this side of Christmas.
