The latest edition of Building Information Modelling-centric magazine BIM Today is now available to read online.

The 98-page publication is headlined by an article by NBSDr. Stephen Hamil, who discusses his firm’s involvement in creating the UK Government-backed Digital Toolkit, which includes the Digital Plan of Work (dPoW). This technological tool is described as the source that is “completing the jigsaw” puzzle of how to attain Level 2 BIM ready for 2016. The Director of Design and Innovation says that the toolkit will provide “the greatest chance of success” for industry users.

The publicity follows thinkBIM‘s recent event which saw delegates in attendance get a sneak peak at the beta version of the software. In addition, its use for landscape architects was recently discussed in an Ecobuild webinar, and it will also be showcased at the Ecobuild 2015 event itself in March.

The most crucial BIM standards and upcoming ones also are discussed in an article helmed by Anthony Burd and Stephanie Kosandiak of BSI, whilst AtkinsAnne Kemp – who is also the new Vice Chair of buildingSMART UK – discusses the strengthening relationship between BIM and GIS, an article we first promoted on our #Bimagery Instagram feed.

Elsewhere in the magazine, software giants Solibri and architecture practice Stride Treglown jointly provide a case study on COBie and Tekla‘s Duncan Reed‘s discusses how Tekla BIM software can aid the practice of professionals within the industry.
