Building Information Modelling (BIM) – UK information resource

As more and more construction professionals, property developers and owners become aware of BIM, there have been a number of white papers released. Searching on the web for the most reliable information can become a bit of a nightmare. So for those that need more in-depth information, We’ve created a short-list of white papers and information sources below. All of these BIM documents come from reputable sources, but please take note of the dates that they were published. As BIM gains traction in the industry, you will need to refer to more up-to-date sources of information, though we will endeavour to add these to the Cadnet feed as and when they are released.
