If you’re in the UK, you are probably aware that the Government’s deadline of April 2016 (for Level 2 BIM) is almost upon us. How ready are you? Are you fully aware of the implications and obligations of meeting the Level 2 criteria? Have you already achieved Level 2? To discuss the success of the introduction of Level 2 BIM, the University of Salford (Manchester) is hosting it’s second Annual BIM Conference on 12th July, 2016.
This will be a fantastic opportunity to catch-up with the current status of BIM adoption in the UK and also to learn about some of the challenges in going forward with Level 3 and beyond.

The Second Annual BIM Conference will provide delegates with the opportunity to learn, debate and discuss about the arguments surrounding how widespread use of BIM can be encouraged in the construction industry, the effects of government initiatives on BIM uptake, advancements in BIM technology, and the environmental benefits of BIM adoption.
