Are you #BIMready?

BIM (Building Information Modelling) Level 2 has been mandated for use on all government funded projects from 2016 and will affect almost everyone working within the built environment, from those working in the AEC (Architecture, Engineering, Construction) industry to commissioning clients, owners and facilities managers.

Despite this however, there remains many misconceptions about what Level 2 BIM is and how it should be implemented.
