Earlier this week, thinkBIM were back and this time, they provided a platform for the preview one of the most talked-about technical solutions in the industry.

thinkBIM welcomes NBS to their latest seminar, which attracted over 40 guests, all of whom were eagerly awaiting a fresh and exciting new glimpse of NBS’ Digital Toolkit. Other members of NBS’ team working on the toolkit include BIM Academy, Microsoft and Mott McDonald.

The free-to-use toolkit, which NBS were awarded the contract of by the UK BIM Task Group and Innovate UK, is the final part of the Government’s Level 2 BIM mandate scheme. Once the toolkit is complete, it is to “to provide step-by-step support to define, manage and validate responsibility for information development and delivery at each stage of the asset lifecycle”.

At the event, delegates were treated to a presentation by RIBA EnterprisesAndrew Brook on how the toolkit will work and how it will help support those using it with their BIM implementation. He also gave the lucky attendees a live demo of the toolkit, which is so far 50% finished.

thinkBIM have further details on the event, including a Storify of tweets, which can be viewed here.

The next event will spotlight BIM for Manufacturers, aka BIM4M2, who recently released the results of their much-discussed manufacturers survey.
