The U.K. government's plan for growth highlighted the critical importance of an efficient construction industry to the U.K. economy. The construction sector is a critical growth area for them, therefore, providing a more efficient process will aid in this plan. U.K. construction represents some 7% of GDP or £110 billion per annum of expenditure—some 40% of this being in the public sector, with central government being the industry's biggest customer. As a result, the aim to effectively save on construction projects was at the forefront of the government objective. This class will summarize the final steps toward reaching what the industry is now familiar with defining as Level 2 Building Information Modeling (BIM) and the final steppingstones toward achieving this. As we move closer to April 2015, the so-called deadline, we are seeing many projects achieve their compliance and an industry scrambling to train, add skills to their teams, and promote BIM as part of their services.
