Last week was a short but busy week for me as I spent Monday a long weekend at Camber Sands getting some fresh air and eating well. The beach was great but the hotel was questionable.
Tuesday saw me catch a flight to visit one of our customers in Belfast to deliver a BIM awareness session. Interestingly out of twenty or so attendees only a couple raised their hands when asked if they had heard of the term. Of course they may have been half asleep or a bit shy but actually I think that it was indicative of the level of awareness in the infrastructure biased disciplines and the scale of the task ahead of us.
Thursday we caught up with the Head of BIM Implementation at the Cabinet Office and, as ever, had a fascinating chat. I am always encouraged by his no nonsense, uncomplicated approach to BIM adoption even in tier 1 and tier 2 organisations. I share his frustrations with the perceived barriers that often cited when we start talking about level 2, collaborative BIM. This is the year of keeping it simple and of getting the facts straight.
