In April 2016, government legislation came into play making it mandatory for centrally procured projects to use Level 2 BIM. The government have shown their commitment to the future of BIM technology with the Centre for Digital Built Britain, a partnership with the University of Cambridge.
Clients, architects and engineers have seen the benefits of BIM and it is fast becoming an industry standard in construction design. In other areas, however, its potential has not been fully realised. While many companies have adopted BIM software, until all contributors to a project use the same systems, problems and inefficiencies are inevitable.
