RIBA Insight Monthly Briefing

Free BIM webinar, plus Digital Construction Marketing

Diary dates

FREE webinar: Building Information Modelling

Friday 2 June 2017, 12:00-12:25hrs

As a construction manufacturer, do you fully understand what impact the Government's Level 2 BIM requirement has on the specification of products used in centrally-procured public sector projects? How confident are you of being able to exploit the opportunities, while avoiding the pitfalls?

Join us on Friday 2 June at 12:00 for a free webinar on BIM, delivered by NBS and RIBA Insight. Topics covered will include:

  • An introduction to the UK's fastest-growing BIM Library – NBS National BIM Library – and how manufacturers can get on board.
  • A step-by-step guide to how specifiers can import manufacturers' BIM objects directly into their specification using the NBS plug-in tool.

This will be an interactive webinar. You will be encouraged to get involved by asking questions. (If your question cannot easily be answered on the day, a response will be sent via email).
