As we move towards the end of this year a challenge has been set for the new National BIM Council to develop a high level strategic roadmap that will guide Ireland’s Construction Industry and enable it to transition towards a digital economy that is not only fit for purpose but also setting the standard internationally.

 As a small open economy we are exposed to unforeseen risks that challenge established principles, but also as one of the most dynamic, flexible nations on earth with an appetite for a challenge, we have some significant opportunities.

As a member of the National BIM Council I have been asked to present to my fellow members of the Board next week;

What does industry want from BIM; what will define success?

Some of the ideas floated include, long term sustainability, cooperative working, supporting the transient nature of our industry and its people, a less contractual environment, dealing with skills shortages and possibly facilitating life long professional development

Your challenge is to tell me your top 3 priorities that you feel BIM should deliver for Ireland’s Construction Industry, let’s say by 2021.
