GroupBC becomes a patron of the UK BIM Alliance
Supporting their work to drive awareness, education and adoption of Building Information Management (BIM) Level 2 across the UK Built Environment
The Alliance, launched in 2016, represents and works with and for the Built Industry facilitating the drive towards digital transformation of the UK's built environment. Prior to its launch, many of the organisations involved, including numerous BIM4 groups, WomenInBim, and the BIM Regions, actedmainly in isolation. These groups now operate in collaboration, pooling resources and knowledge under the Communities Group.
Stuart Bell, GroupBC Sales and Marketing Director, said: "We've worked with a number of the industry organisations involved in the Alliance over the past few years, so we are delighted to officially support their campaigns and research projects. We are both passionate about increasing awareness and implementation of digital technologies across the sector, so are excited about being more closely involved with the Alliance and the opportunities this offers".
