BIM grabs the attention of the World Economic Forum

The Boston Consulting Group has recently published 'An Action Plan to Accelerate Building Information Modeling (BIM) Adoption' in association with The World Economic Forum, Arup, Aecom and the UK Government.

It looks at BIM as technology enabling collaborative project teams to work with consistent, standardised data. It asks why construction is less productive than other industries and proposes a 27 point action plan grouped in nine categories.

It concludes that the supply chain should collaborate and work more closely together. Clients, in particular governments around the world, should mandate BIM on their projects, running pilot projects and investing in training and incentives. Finally, it re-iterates the benefits such as improved quality, reduced costs, decisions that reduce environmental impact and greater certainty around outcomes.

It's always a nice suprise to see NBS initiatives mentioned in global publications - so it was great to see NBS National BIM Library being given as an example of creating a digital marketplace for construction.
NBS gets a mention :)
So maybe download the report and have a read. Link below...
