In May 2011, the UK government published the construction strategy aimed at reducing the cost of public sector assets by up to 20% by 2016. To achieve this strategy, the government mandated that all companies tendering for government construction work should be working at level 2 BIM by 2016.

Join us to find out about BSI’s latest BIM document to help you work at Level 2 BIM by 2016. Find out how to use PAS 1192-3:2014 Specification for information management for the operational phase of assets using building information modelling (BIM).
