A week or two ago we published our NBS National BIM Report for Manufacturers 2015.
It has contributions from our Chief Executive Richard Waterhouse and Director of National BIM Library Ian Chapman. In addition, Head of Research Adrian Malleson looks at the 2015 BIM survey from the perspective of a manufacturer.
There is a short case study from architectural practice, David Miller Architects outlining how they have integrated BIM throughout their design processes. A particular focus is on how they use well-structured manufacturer information to create greater efficiencies and added value to their clients.
David Miller comments on the importance of quality when it comes to BIM objects, "Knowing that
information has been developed to the NBS BIM Object Standard will give us the confidence
There are also two case studies from manufacturers who have been early-adopters of BIM.
Assa Abloy Managing Director of UK Specification David Wigglesworth comments, "It is fair to assume that the 2016 mandate for government-funded projects to use BIM will have a significant impact on its uptake and use in the construction industry, with manufacturers supplying to public sector builds seeing BIM as a ‘must-have’".
Joris Smet Director at Smet Building Products Ltd comments, "Moving into our third BIM year, in alignment with our strategy, we will continue to prioritise monitoring designers’ needs, invest in, and
enhance, our BIM catalogue and continue to address the immediate need of designers for access to high quality, standardised, information-rich BIM objects. This is a distinct opportunity and we will continue to do more in collaboration with NBS – in whom designers trust – to ultimately strengthen our position at the forefront of BIM innovation and efficiency improvements in the construction industry."
