On 4th April 2016, it became mandatory for all stakeholders working on publicly funded projects to use Building Information Modelling (BIM) to level 2. The intention behind this initiative is to help fulfil the government’s target of reducing waste in construction, through the lowering of both the capital and operational costs, by 20%.
Around £40bn of public money is spent on centrally funded public buildings every year. Therefore minimising waste as a result of inefficiencies, abortive work discrepancies and inefficiencies in the supply chain, is a fundamental objective of a collaborative 3D Level 2 BIM approach.
MK Electric, alongside Honeywell, is committed to supporting this drive for a more collaborative way of working and you can access our BIM files here.
