Everyone has an opinion when it comes to Building Information Modelling (BIM), but what do you – as a manufacturer – need to do to get the most out of it?

BIM is increasingly being used in all major construction projects – not just public sector – leading to a corresponding increase in demand for manufacturers' BIM objects. The UK remains at the forefront of global BIM adoption, and NBS and RIBA Insight are best placed to guide you through all that you need to know to maximise the opportunities it brings.

Book your FREE place now. Cut through the confusion surrounding BIM, and find out what digital construction looks like in practice.

You'll get to hear from architects and manufacturers who've undergone their own transformations. They, and our own BIM experts, will be on hand to answer questions and offer one-to-one advice. There will also be ample opportunity to mix with colleagues and make new contacts.
