The Yorkshire and Humber BIM Region aims to provide the natural home for BIM questions and answers in the region. The Hub intends to act as a filter to demystify BIM and help clarify processes and methodologies to empower the entire construction industry supply chain.
We will endeavour to offer detailed BIM information focused on the specific wants and needs of different disciplines including SMEs, manufacturers, education and the public and private sectors.
The Yorkshire and Humber BIM Region will represent the region ensuring our voice is heard at a national level.
