Here’s what we have found most interesting this week (or something we’re excited to announce!)…
SUPPORT FOR BIM EXPERTS
It’s a worrying time for many BIM specialists at the moment. We want to help so we’re launching a brand new service – the BIM Expert Directory. Read more here.
ARTICLES OF THE WEEK
A mixed bag of articles on predictions for the future of construction post Covid-19:
Justifying the logic behind the BIM Experts Directory:
- Simon Jack at the BBC also anticipates increasing redundancies as the Chancellor phases out furloughing: kerplunk;
- The CPA warns the industry to “expect a long slog ahead” after a prediction of a 25% fall in output. Read more in this Construction Manager article here.
- Glenigan has released their analysis on Construction and Covid-19: The state of play and what signs of recovery they are seeing.
- The results of the fifth annual Construction Manager BIM survey, in conjunction with BIM+ shows a mixed picture of a sector still not wholly at ease with digital technology. See an analysis of the results here.
QUOTE OF THE WEEK
“It will be about surviving, those willing to innovate and change, to make tech “business as usual” will likely be those who continue into a new era.“
Marzia Bolpagni, Senior BIM Adviser at Mace
Read the full BIM+ round table discussion here on whether uptake on digital will accelerate due to the Covid-19 crisis.
JOB OF THE WEEK
EEK! We’re sorry but nothing exciting to report on the BIM job front this week. Hopefully, BIM Expert Directory will drive some opportunities to you directly!
