‘Look beyond BIM’ at wider digital opportunities, says CDBB

Centre’s 2020-21 programme follows industry feedback through CIOB round table series.

UK construction can build on the success of the BIM programme and become a global leader in information management for the built environment and digital twins.

That’s the message from the Centre for Digital Built Britain (CDBB) as it launches a series of initiatives, after using a round table programme, organised with the CIOB, to gather industry feedback.

“All participants wanted the benefits of digital construction demonstrated more clearly and shared across industry, and at boardroom and executive level, there is a need for greater digital understanding and buy-in,” said Terry Stocks and Fiona Moore, information management consultants for UK Implementation at the CDBB.

“There were also regular calls for clients to ‘set the pace’ of delivery. It was felt a standardised, templated approach to data deliverables on projects would help clients engage with and benefit from BIM.”

These issues are addressed by the centre’s 2020-21 UK work plan, in partnership with the Construction Innovation Hub, which include:

CDBB is also working with BSI and the UK BIM Alliance to set out the UK BIM Framework, a consistent approach for implementing BIM in the UK using the framework for managing information provided by the ISO 19650 series.

The centre works with government, industry and academia to develop, support and promote use of digital technology in the built environment.

Perhaps if blockchain technology was implemented by UK BIM FRAMEWORK, then the people who produce the data will be rewarded for their imput . As we all know companies spend good £ on these projects so handing it over for free just so others can learn isn’t realy viable as they are potentially giving away their competitive edge, whereas implementation of blockchain would enable them to be rewarded for their efforts and provide a undisputed and unchangable record of their works
