In April 2016 the UK government launched its mandate requiring collaborative BIM Level 2 to be used on all construction projects procured by central government departments. The mandate is seen as a catalyst for change in the construction industry, but how well are companies embedding BIM Level 2 in projects and what needs to happen to improve implementation that takes BIM to the next level?

BIM Prospects 2017 will assess where the construction industry is one year on from the launch of the BIM Level 2 mandate and will explore the development of BIM for product manufacturers.

BIM Prospects and Digitally Built

Now in its third year, the two-day conference, will be run in conjunction with the Institute of Engineering and Technology’s (IET) Digitally Built conference, which will focus on the other vital components of digital construction; the synergies producing a complete overall picture of digitising the construction sector.

Both conferences will be held at the IET’s Savoy Place in central London. Pay just one registration fee and you can gain access to both conference programmes and benefit from seeing all the content via IET.tv post-event.
