Building Information Modelling

January 2010

The use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) in the US was the subject of a paper presented at a recent international conference in London. The author suggested that BIM is being widely adopted for complex projects but that its use is being held back by problems of a business or legal nature, particularly problems affecting designers.

In the attached article, we summarise some of the author's comments on the technology concerned and the problems referred to, and consider whether these problems are likely to be the same in the UK. We suggest that there are reasons to think that this is not the case.
