Regional BIM Hub joins forces with local businesses

  • Comment

The North East Regional BIM Hub has been working to help local businesses adapt to BIM

BIM will become a requirement of all government projects by 2016. The North East regarded as a ‘centre fo excellance’ for BIM and they developing innovative ways of using digital models to design, construct and manage projects.

The Regional BIM Hub is a support network allowing businesses to share knowledge on the implementation of BIM.

The North East BIM Challenge was held on the 10 April. Here, 30 teams including participants from Summers Inman, Cundall, Niven Architects and the BIM Academy – a collaboration between Ryder Architecture and Northumbria University, competed to design and digitally construct a new community centre in Shieldfield, Newcastle.

More than 20 of those taking part had very little BIM experience, and the event gave them the opportunity to gain hands on use of the computer programmes.

Dave Meldrum of Meldrum Construction, who took part in the competition, said: ‘It was a really enlightening to see what technology and team working can achieve in such a short space of time’.
