Builders Beams are extremely excited to announce that we have achieved BIM LEVEL 2 after successful assessment, which means we are now able to collaborate on all Government construction projects.
What is BIM LEVEL 2?
Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a collaborative way of working, underpinned by digital technologies. These technologies allow for more efficient methods of designing, delivering and maintaining physical built assets throughout their entire lifecycle. BIM LEVEL 2 was introduced as a requirement for all government construction projects as of April 4th 2016.
Builders Beams have successfully demonstrated collaborative working across disciplines with all parties using 3D BIM models, proving that we have the ability to share design information through a common file format such as IFC (Industry Foundation Class) or COBie (Construction Operations Building Information Exchange).
Why is BIM LEVEL 2 Important?
The use of BIM is central to delivering the UK Government’s latest vision for Construction 2025 and Builders Beams are committed to supporting this vision by collaborating to create more sustainable buildings quickly and more efficiently.
The Construction 2025 vision places BIM at the core of its Smart action to create an industry that is efficient and technologically advanced. By being BIM LEVEL 2 Assessed, Builders Beams are now able to work with Contractors on all Government Projects.
