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.
The world is an extremely competitive place. Billions of people are having ideas all of the time, and millions of those people are in a position where they can turn an idea into a product or service that can be sold.
