Building Services Sector Backs New BIM Survey

Building Services Sector Backs New BIM Survey

Array of industry bodies lend support to ECA survey

Leading building engineering services bodies have offered their full support for the new sector-wide ‘BIM readiness survey.’

The survey, being run by the United Kingdom's Electrical Contractors’ Association (ECA), alongside the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) and BSRIA, now has additional supporters, which include the following industry and sector bodies:

  •          The Building and Engineering Services Association (B&ES);
  •          The Specialist Engineering Contractors’ Group (SEC Group);
  •          The British Electrotechnical and Allied Manufacturers' Association (BEAMA);
  •          The Construction Products Association (CPA);
  •          Voltimum (the electrical industry portal);
  •          SELECT (Scotland’s electrical trade association)
  •          The Fire and Security Association (FSA – affiliated to the ECA); and
  •          The South East Centre for the Built Environment (SECBE).

The study is expected to reveal crucial information about 'BIM Level 2' capability, highlighting where further effort should be focused to ensure the sector is prepared for public sector and commercial BIM procurement, and notably the 2016 requirement for BIM on all centrally-procured government work.

The ‘BIM (Building Information Modelling) Readiness’ survey is being run in conjunction with SELECT in Scotland, and it has already generated a significant national response. A full list of stakeholders can be viewed on the front page of the survey.

The survey will run until Sept. 15. The sector-wide survey is conducted in confidence and individual responses will not be published.
