Gareth Beck, Associate Director of Aerospace & Defence at Morson Projects gives us an informative insight into what Building Information Modelling (BIM) really is.

What is BIM?

Building Information Modeling is an intelligent 3D model-based process that equips architecture, engineering, and construction professionals with the insight and tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure. This process, made up of levels of BIM maturity, allows for more efficient methods of designing, delivering and maintaining the assets throughout their entire lifecycle. Level 2 is the recommended target for all central procurement government projects.  

Why has Level 2 been introduced?

The UK Government published the Construction Strategy in May 2011, which aimed to reduce the cost of public sector assets by up to 20% by 2016. To achieve this strategy, the government requires construction suppliers tendering for centrally-procured government projects to be working at Level 2.

With so many major government infrastructure initiatives on the horizon (such as HS2 and the nuclear new build programme), the need for BIM compliance is critical. Bridging public and private sector projects, Building Information Modeling is a best practice process which will require support from the entire supply chain.

Morson’s BIM offering

As a leading recruitment agency within the nuclear, rail and construction sectors, our role within the supply chain is to ensure we can source candidates with the correct Building Information Modeling expertise.

We also take BIM recruitment advice from other industry sectors within our business. For example, the aerospace and automotive industries have been working to BIM-similar processes for more than 15 years, and understand the modelling tools, collaborative working methodologies and data drop processes required for successful project completion. Through this expertise, we understand the necessity for Building Information Modeling trained professionals and the key attributes to look for. This has helped us to better understand the candidate market, to more accurately target our attraction strategies and to build a talent pool of Building Information Modeling skilled candidates.

Our teams specialise in core infrastructure sectors. Our experience ensures that we have the networks and market reach to source candidates both specifically trained in BIM, and those requiring upskilling or further training.
