The new 'BIM Standard' was published in March of this year. Does your business meet the Government's Level 2 requirement? How would you know and how could you demonstrate your capability to prospective clients?
Spectrum is working with a number of partners to help businesses with answers to these questions, collaborating with experienced practitioners and accreditation bodies to build a model that will turn standards such as PAS 1192-2 into a practical process. The result will be a guide to increasing your capacity and a benchmark for assessing your capability.
"This is a really exciting project" said Neil Reed, Managing Director at Spectrum, "Whilst the UK Government has done some good work in leading the debate and putting important structure into place for developing BIM practice, there is now a need - and great opportunity - for us to pick up and run with it".
The construction and infrastructure sectors are at an important crossroads, with client requirements increasingly demanding data-rich models of assets. We sit at a point where there is growing demand, awareness and the basic tools of technology and documentation - yet relatively little real capability in putting the pieces together.
It's an exciting challenge, moving towards a complete model of competence that will set the benchmark for the future. Details will be released in the summer of 2013 - watch this space...
