At the end of 2012 I did a little blog post looking back through the year at some of the 2012 highlights. So one year on, the same again. Please find the highlights of the year from my point of view...
1. January - NBS Green BIM Conference
|Waterhouse and the wedge|
January also saw the publication of the joint NBS/OpenBIM COBie report that may be downloaded for free.
2. February - BDTwitter100
3. March - National BIM Survey 2013
|National BIM Survey|
I also had the pleasure of doing what is becoming an annual presentation to the London Revit User Group which is always pretty lively in the question and answer session and good discussions in pub after the event [post 1 / post 2].
...and squashed in the middle was ecobuild - many of the NBS/RIBA village presentations are on the web to view for free.
4. April - CIC Growth through BIM Report
|Growth through BIM|
5. May - RIBA Plan of Work 2013
|50 years in the making|
May also saw two top BIM conferences - BIM Show Live and also Dublin - Meet the Experts.
6. June - BIM for the Terrified
|Terrified about BIM?|
Also in June - at NBS we released the latest version of our plug-in for Autodesk Revit.
7. July - Construction News award winners
We also had some great fun taking part in the Singapore 48 hour BIM challenge with our friends up at BIM Academy - 4 blog posts on this [Post 1, Post 2, Post 3 and Post 4].
8. August - Everyone was on holiday
9. September - 40 years of NBS
|Computers in the old days|
Also this month there was a BE2Award for our Marketing Team for their use of social media and the Internet in their activities.
10. October - BIM International
|Probably the best|

October also saw the launch of the NBS plug-in for Vectorworks which we were delighted about. In addition to ArchiCAD, Revit and Vectorworks we are working on more collaboration plug-ins - so hopefully watch this space in 2014.
11. November - NBS Live
In November, we also won one final award - this time it was at the Construction Computing Awards and the prize was for the 'Team of the Year'. The fact that this went to our Research and Development team (the team I have been part of since 1999) was a very, very nice way to end the year.
12. December - Think BIM
So another busy year. Thanks to everyone who regularly visits the blog. Thanks also to those that follow on Twitter. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year - All the very best in 2014.
