BIM: Digital built Britain, BIM level 3, IoT and smart cities training course

BIM Level 2 is now becoming established as the minimum level of performance for project delivery and asset management. Attention is now turning to the nature and implications of BIM Level 3 and beyond; including social integration, smart cities (Communities), Geographical Information Systems (GIS), Internet of things (IoT) and Smart Contracts.

BIM Level 3 is still being defined and developed, but the direction of travel is clear – better linkages between datasets, wider and deeper data about the beneficial use of built environment assets, greater automation of data-handling, and societal outcomes; not just technical outputs.

This course will help delegates engage with the implications of this wider scope of built environment data and information management; and start to understand how they can exploit the opportunities that BIM Level 3 might provide.

This course covers:

  • Richer information models for specific locations, assets and projects. IoT and BMS
  • Smart cities/communities and GIS-networks and spatial
  • Societal outcomes. Feedback. Social monitoring. Security and openness
  • The importance of big and little data. Data primacy, immediacy

Who should attend?

Clients, asset owners, designers, construction, commissioning and FM managers who may need to anticipate these developments in the creation and management of the built environment. Also public policy-makers at national or regional levels seeking to understand the potential of BIM Level 3.


Management engagement with project and portfolio activities.
