The journey from BIM to a Digital Community in the nuclear industry – Removing the barriers, Warrington

About this event

Please note: this event is now fully booked.

BIM, or Building Information Modelling, and Data Management in the nuclear industry has moved significantly to align with the government initiative of a 'Digital Built Britain'.

The creation of a 'Digital Community' is embracing Engineering, Manufacturing, Construction and Operations; promising greater efficiencies and leaner operations throughout the life of an asset. This is encompassing the design, construction, testing and asset commissioning; and on to its operational life and eventual decommission.

Success of BIM is very much dependent on strong project initiation and the alignment of business case, a common data environment and an integrated PMO. It is being championed by government and industry alike as having the backbone to support all future construction projects.

It has moved, in a few short years, from the margins into the mainstream of the UK construction industry. The governments Industrial Strategy and the wish to develop greater productivity is key to its success.

Refreshments will be served from 18:00, with the presentation starting at 18:30.

Parking for this event is free. Please ensure to get your parking ticket validated by a member of staff on arrival.
