The Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE) and the Institute of Asset Management (IAM) have become affiliates of the UK BIM Alliance.
Matt Byatt, chair of the engineering leadership group at IStructE, said: “[We are] pleased to work with the BIM Alliance to support the implementation of BIM in practice and provide a coordinated approach to digital transformation across the built environment.”
IAM UK Chapter chair Graeme Bruce: “Digital transformation is a key aspect of the journey to build an effective and forward-thinking approach to asset management. We are very pleased to join the affiliates programme. It’s a great opportunity to be part of the growing community across many industry sectors and organisations that are using BIM to maximise value from the built environment and to coordinate our approach to identifying and achieving best practice.”
Steve Faulkener, UK BIM Alliance affiliates leadership team, said: “The Affiliate programme aims to bring together the professional institutions, trade associations and any other industry organisations to provide a consistent message and coordinated approach to digital transformation, working across silos to a shared objective.”
