Bouygues Construction and datBIM have signed a three-year partnership agreement that will allow them to work together on improving access through building information modelling (BIM) to suppliers’ product data.
Bouygues and the French start-up will work together on the development of structured access by BIM users to data from suppliers and smaller construction partners.
They say it will improve data sharing and exchange and thereby improve overall collaboration.
Bouygues says it now uses BIM in all its projects.
The Government’s construction strategy published last week listed four major aims, including to “embed and increase the use of digital technology, including BIM Level 2”.
