A Building Information Modelling (BIM) Region was formed in Wales in July 2012 under the chairmanship of Clive Webb, Director of Boyes Rees Architects, to provide much needed support for the Welsh construction industry.
BIM is an inter-disciplinary process that will help professionals generate and manage data during the life cycle of a build from conception through to demolition. It will enable employers to achieve significant improvements in efficiency, productivity, cost savings and inter-disciplinary working, helping to safeguard jobs and create new work opportunities across the whole supply chain.
CITB, the Sector Skills Council and Industry Training Board for construction are supporting the collaborative approach that is being led by the Construction Industry Council (CIC) to champion employer-led skills change for the built environment sector and introduce BIM to industry processes.
