This capability assessment sets out the actions that government and industry will take to create opportunities for the UK construction sector by becoming a world leader in Building Information Modelling (BIM). We will build on the considerable progress already made in embedding BIM into the domestic sector.

Web pages of information related to the gradual introduction of BIM in public procurement under Ireland’s Capital Works Management Framework (CWMF) and defined in the 2023 contract reforms package supporting the National Development Plan (NDP)

From January 2024 the OGP, in conjunction with the Government Contracts Committee for Construction, will monitor the uptake of BIM across those public bodies who are required to use the CWMF. The timeline is subject to review, any changes will be based on feedback from this monitoring process.

The Build Digital Project aims to transform the Irish construction and built environment sectors by enabling all stakeholders, particularly SMEs, clients, and suppliers, to develop, maintain, and continuously improve their capabilities as digitally enabled, standards-based, agile, collaborative, and sustainable participants in the delivery of Project Ireland 2040.

This online resource is aimed at Architects and Architectural Technologists as well as clients, industry professionals and educators in this sector. The RIAI BIM Pack 2 comprises the following suite of documents: BIM Update with ISO 19650 Series BIM Guide for SMEs Appendix 1 – File Naming Standards Appendix 2 – Model Responsibility Template Appendix 3 – Master Information Delivery Plan Template

As the construction industry continues to evolve and increasingly embraces digitisation, an early-stage project deliverable for Build Digital was to conduct a horizon scan of the opportunities available for those within the construction sector. A primary aim, therefore, is to provide a comprehensive inventory of educational and training provisions that exist within Ireland at present. The resulting inventory focuses on key educational sectors, including Universities, Educational Training Boards (ETBS), Colleges of Further Education, Professional bodies, and similar organisations. There are in excess of 300 entries on the inventory.

This inventory was developed as a tool for identifying relevant standards and, in particular, their relevance to Build Digital. Each document found in this research was recorded, reviewed, and graded based on the scoring system created for this report and tool. This tool is intended to be flexible should new standards be published, or a change is required to an existing standard. There are in excess of 120 entries on the inventory.

The report presents recommendations for Build Digital with respect to information management and the use of BIM as a critical vehicle of innovation to unlock improved project outcomes in construction. The focus on addressing the information challenge is evident in the UK government’s publication of nternational information management standards in 2018 and the recent introduction of an information management mandate.

A colloquium is a conference where high-level discussions take place between experts in relation to a topic of importance. The event typically has a questions and answers period and is followed by the compilation of a document which details the discussions that took place. Chatham House Rules apply, meaning any discussions, other than formal presentations, will not be attributed to the contributor. The purpose of the Build Digital Industry Colloquium is to better align the project with the needs of the industry and to identify the benefits expected for the industry from the future work of the project. To ensure a diverse representation, Build Digital approached the Construction Industry Council (CIC) to invite participants from CIC representative bodies
