BIM4Housing Working Groups identify the issues affecting their own specific discipline. Looking to the future, as well as existing challenges, these issues are then funneled through to Workstreams, for analysis and solutions.

"In most topic areas, those who are passionate about change know what needs to be done to improve things, but they cannot achieve that within their own “silo”. We need to create an environment that allows experts to share their ideas with other experts. These initial ideas can then be challenged and developed into solutions."

Construction

The Hackitt requirement of creating the golden thread that connects the original specification to products that were recommended, and then what was actually installed, means that there is a need to deliver very efficiently- to avoid additional costs impacting on commercial viability.

Development

Housing Development clients have always been responsible for the safety of their residents, but the transparency, governance and scrutiny of demonstrating this is changing rapidly.

Operations

The first vital step in getting Operations teams a reliable Asset Information Model is to identify, exactly, the information that is needed, where that information can be found and who should be responsible for supplying it.
