UK: Building information modelling (BIM) has been hailed by Cabinet Office minister Chloe Smith as a “great growth opportunity for SMEs”. Speaking at the launch of a new group aimed at helping SMEs to start using BIM, she said it could be a “great leveller” for smaller companies to compete with larger organisations.
“BIM is fast becoming a keystone for industry reforms and better outcomes,” Smith said adding, “It’s central to the future success of BIM that SMEs can adopt [it], even if it’s through providing data. We know BIM is a great leveller and can help SMEs compete with much bigger organisations.”
