BIM is ever changing. However, the core idea is that by
working together, we can create better data about the
construction of buildings.
Using that data, we can improve the process of
building (the government target is to cut capital costs
and carbon in buildings by 20%) and after that, improve

In sum, by harnessing information and data we can
improve the construction sectors outcomes, delivering
better value for clients, while also improving our profit
