Filed under: CPD, Events, London BIM



A key aspect of  the London & SE BIM Regions BIM Series is to engage the learner by encouraging participation both before and after the event itself.

This is the second post event scenario; you are to consider the question below and then participate in the Twitter Storm tonight between 7pm and 8pm using #beginBIM.

You work for an AEC organisation that does not have a clear BIM Strategy and you have received a Pre-qualification questionnaire from a local authority that has to comply with the mandate to achieve Level 2 BIM by April 2016.  You need to prepare a response to the following question;

What do you see as the benefits of BIM to the Local Authority and your own organisation?

You should consider:

  • What are the benefits to a client such as a local authority?
  • What are the benefits to the design community?
  • What are the benefits to the main contractor?
  • What are the critical success factors in successfully adopting BIM?
