Edge Debate 80: Level 2 BIM; how’s it been for you?

Tuesday, February 28th, 2017 | Debates

bim-image3Nearly a year after UK Government mandated Level 2 BIM for its projects, is it getting what it sought and are the efficiencies promised in building delivery and operations being achieved?

The ambition for L2 BIM was to progress from 3-D spatial models to ones that also provide all of the information on a building, its components, assemblies, costs, operation & performance that any player might need to know at any time in its life cycle. The L2 model was intended to be built progressively by many parties into an holistic, up-to-date and factual representation of the building for multiple life-long uses.

Elegant in concept, the devil was always going to be in the detail.
This debate explored Level 2 BIM’s progress so far, how it affects different stakeholders and what, if anything, is needed next.
