BIM academy boosts construction industry
A new Building Information Modelling (BIM) academy has been launched in order to support the UK construction industry.
Ryder Architecture have launched the BIM academy in conjunction with Northumbria University, combining their practical experience with the universities research and technology capabilities in order to transform the construction industry.
The project has been launched with the intention of undertaking projects in research, development, education and consultancy.
The launch later this month is anticipated to coincide with the government’s announcement regarding the adoption of BIM in public sector construction.
Professor of building modelling at Northumbria University, Steve Lockley said: “There are many in the Industry who still do not appreciate the advantages of integrated project delivery and the potential of BIM in achieving it; there are also those who are keen to adopt but require support and encouragement in doing so`’
Managing director of Ryder Architecture also spoke out positively about the partnership: “It is vital to share this experience with industry peers to achieve the transformation the industry needs to survive in the current economic climate and thrive in the future.”
