The National Federation of Builders (NFB) and Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership are teaming to provide Building Information Modelling training to small and medium enterprises on Merseyside.

Supported by the European Regional Development Fund, the joint initiative will support SMEs via a series of training programmes spanning 12 hours in total. A substantial range of tutelage variations are on offer as part of the series including a webinar, a diagnostic and review session, a five-hour workshop and a one-to-one consultancy session.

The cost of the training comes in at £1200 plus VAT per company (up to two employees), yet half of that is refunded via “a simple retrospective claim back process”.

Karen Dawes, NFB’s Training Manager, said: “The March 2016 Government mandate for BIM is fast approaching. As an increasingly number of clients and framework operators move towards enforcing BIM on their projects, being able to work in a BIM environment becomes more important than ever to SME contractors and their supply chains. The NFB is delighted to be working with Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership to enable construction SMEs in the region to develop and grow truly sustainable businesses.”
