£1m Innovate UK contract to help digitise Government construction projects – press release display page – innovateuk

Innovate UK has awarded a £1m contract to RIBA Enterprises to develop a prototype digital tool that is set to transform the procurement of buildings and infrastructure at home and abroad.
Free to use, the tool will exploit the standards being made publicly available for Building Information Modelling (BIMA digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a facility. As such it serves as a shared knowledge resource for information about a facility forming a reliable basis for decisions during its life cycle from inception onward.).  Regarded as a ‘game-changer’, BIM involves the sharing of three-dimensional data and associated asset information by all responsible for the design, construction and operation of buildings and infrastructure.
RIBA Enterprises has been awarded the contract following an open competition launched in February 2014 and run in partnership with the Department for Business (BIS) and the joint industry-government BIM Task Group.
