Event Overview

The UK Government and Construction industry have an aim to move towards a Digital Built Britain (BIM Level 3) as set out by The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills who have unveiled the strategic plan for BIM Level 3. This sets out how to create a high performing and transparent digital infrastructure in the way we plan, design, build and maintain our built environment leading towards greater efficiency and profitability and ensuring reliability is sustainable.

The government strategy document  of February 2015 for BIM Level 3 – Digital Built Britain was generally acknowledged to be a work of “vision” as Richard Saxon one of our acclaimed speakers and former UK BIM ambassador for growth , described it.

The road ahead will be a challenge

2020, can be considered the first staging post along the way to the ‘industry’s’ “industrial strategy” Construction 2025 with Level 3A & 3B with Level 3C & 3D by 2025. Through reaching these Level 3 BIM goals additional collaborative strategies and efficiency targets for 2025 include – a 50% reduction in programme and 33% reduction in costs. The event is simply expanding on this commonly held view and encouraging the industry to work toward it.

Simply put, this means using a single source shared project model held in a central location, accessible by all parties involved in the project who should be able to modify the same model. Currently known as OpenBIM, BIM Level 3 is the only model which will fully connect the supply and data chain from start to finish creating end to end efficiencies throughout the whole life cycle.

As the BIM Task Groups own website put it when highlighting Level 3 Building Information Modelling Strategic Plan – This strategy represents the outcomes and recommendations for the next stage of the Building Information Modelling journey, building on the standards and savings being delivered by the BIM level 2 initiative. Level 3 will enable the interconnected digital design of different elements in a built environment and will extend BIM into the operation of assets over their lifetime. It will support the accelerated delivery of smart cities, services and grids.

BIM LEVEL 3 & Beyond - Moving Forward After Level 2

This event has been created to look at the step up to BIM Level 3 and the challenges and issues on the lead up.

This event allows you to join the debate along the way and is sure to raise some contentious issues, however, formulating and understanding what lies beyond BIM Level 2 has to be faced head on.

The supply chain has to be transparent and cooperate within the relationships between conceptual, design, planning, construction and whole life cycle stages. However there will be challenges, not least on ownership and liability.

BIM Level 3 will be a big leap – Having to focus on the concepts of big data, openBIM and the sharing of information, the event will look at copyright wrangles created by ownership read/write permission issues and will also investigate the subject of liability & shared risk by inviting discussion on procurement routes.

This one day conference will help you to gain valuable insights from leading experts and early trail blazers of BIM Level 3 so you gain practical advice, see best practice, join the debate and go away with valuable knowledge you need in moving BIM forward within your organisation whatever level you are currently at.

We bring together experts for our speaker line up from industry, law, government and academia to discuss ‘BIM LEVEL 3 & Beyond – Moving Forward After Level 2 and how we join forces to tackle the major challenges and reap the rewards BIM Level 3 has to offer.
