The technology of building information modelling is going to transform the construction industry and affect the jobs of every discipline involved in creating and sustaining the built environment—including structural engineers.
A major new survey is underway to see how “BIM ready” the construction industry really is.
A survey has been designed to highlight the real take up of BIM within companies, with the deadline fast approaching for BIM Level 2 engagement to help companies win centrally procured contracts.
The Electrical Contractors’ Association has launched the survey which is now backed by a host of trade bodies.
ECA Director of Business Services Paul Reeve:
“It’s great news that the building and engineering services sector is showing such support for the ‘BIM readiness’ survey.
“We are asking as many respondents as possible tell us how they are getting on with BIM, and what they are planning to do next.”
“We urge anyone who is involved in, or with, building engineering services to complete the survey.
“It’s vital that we understand how ‘BIM ready’ the sector is. We also expect clients and top tier contractors to be interested because construction will need considerable BIM capability from our sector, for BIM to take off.
“The results will be shared with the government and the wider industry when they are in.”
The survey will run until September 15. It is conducted in confidence and individual responses will not be published.
