To encourage efficiency in the Public Sector, Level 2 BIM will be mandated on all UK public sector construction projects in 2016. Building Information Modelling (BIM) helps to improve efficiency in designing, creating, maintaining and decommissioning infrastructure and buildings. Whilst adopting BIM means creating a single repository for all information from conception through the life of a building, the intent behind it is to create efficient means of collaborating on construction projects, not just a single point for information storage.
Furthermore, BIM isn’t a standard that is just confined to the UK Public Sector, it’s a standard that is being adopted worldwide, and the UK is seen as leading the way. The benefits are clear, and the NBS National BIM Report 2015 stated that “of those who have adopted BIM, 59% see cost efficiencies…48% increased profitability”.
Whatever your key challenges, effective communication is the vital link in the chain that holds any construction project together.
Several construction companies are now seeing the great benefits of implementing a video conferencing or unified collaboration solution into their operation that enables much faster collaboration, improved efficiency and reduced operating costs.
Our guide reviews how video collaboration can be used in the UK construction sector to:
- Avoid site visits
- Avoid disputes
- Manage multiple sites remotely
- Hire and retain talent
- Improve productivity
- Reduce carbon footprint
In a BIM world, where the focus is on efficiency savings in the UK construction sector, video collaboration can play a key role. Many UK Construction companies like Lend Lease and BAM Nuttall agree…read our guide to find out more.
