The Chartered Institute of Building has entered into a coalition with the UK BIM Alliance, an organisation working to make BIM “business as usual”.
Caroline Gumble, CIOB chief executive officer, said: “The digitalisation agenda is crucial to the better use and understanding of data and information across construction and the built environment. The CIOB looks forward to actively working with the UK BIM Alliance in ensuring that this is both better understood and taken forward in collaboration across the industry, professions and trade associations.”
Garry Fannon FCIOB of UK BIM Alliance Affiliates Leadership Team, said: “We are delighted to welcome the CIOB and its members as affiliates to the UKBIMA. This commitment is a positive step forward to improve communication and understanding between the Alliance and CIOB members, delivering support, clarity and consistency as the Construction Industry digitally transforms.”
The Affiliate programme aims to bring together the professional institutions, trade organisations and any other industry organisations to provide a consistent message and coordinated approach to digital transformation, working across silos to a shared objective.
