Ahead of their trainer partnership role at Built Environment Sustainability Training‘s (BEST)’s upcoming Building Information Modelling workshops, Project Five Consulting have answered some frequently asked BIM questions for those who are yet to implement the industry-revolutionising process.
Discussing the four-day Unlocking the Potential of BIM in Wales series of events on their blog, the company (who are also working with Innovate UK) addressed basic reasons as to why BIM adoption is a necessity and why attending their introductory workshops is too.
“BIM is a process that takes time, our saying at Project Five is “it’s a journey; not a destination.” Waiting until 2016 to start that journey will only put you at a competitive disadvantage,” note the consultancy. They are right. The United Kingdom is already way ahead of their global competition, and more so than in any other country, UK AEC firms need to become BIM-enabled or face a bleak future with an empty calendar.
BIM is not just for architecture and construction heavyweights to use to compete with one-another. BIM can enable small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to win bids against larger competitors (become the Davids who slay the Golaiths if you will).
Project Five explained: “BIM isn’t just for the “big boys”, believe us; having supported over 100 SMEs in their BIM journey no matter how big or small you are, BIM will affect you.”
