The recent Causeway-sponsored launch of BIM4SME proved to be a great success, with over 150 people attending a series of presentations, including an overview of the Technologies Alliance and the ‘Delivery Cube’ by Causeway Executive Vice President for Strategy Tim Cole.

The event, held at The Building Centre in London, was also supported by Chloe Smith MP, the Minister at the Cabinet Office with responsibility for the government’s Construction Strategy. She explained how digital technologies can be of benefit to SMEs in the construction industry at many different levels. She also presented the case for BIM as a key element in the Construction Strategy, citing BIM as being “squarely at the heart of the shift to reform the industry and deliver greater efficiencies”.

A lively Q&A session followed the presentations, with a panel made up of Chloe Smith (below), David Philp (also from the Cabinet Office) and Peter Hansford (Chief Construction Advisor). BIM4SME is a working group made up of individuals from SME organisations who have a passion for BIM and a desire to help SMEs (in all areas of construction- be they consultants, contractors, specialists, suppliers or manufacturers) to understand and engage with the BIM process. It is supported by the Construction Industry Council (CIC), in partnership with the Government’s Building Information Modelling (BIM) Task Group.
