‘Heat map’ survey seeks to inform BIM debate

The ICE is calling on civil engineers from all infrastructure sectors to participate in its 2014 building information modelling (BIM) “heat map” survey, which seeks to find out more about the application of BIM in the built environment.

The survey can be accessed online at www.surveymonkey.com/s/heatmapquestions until 30 June and all respondents will be entered into a prize draw for a Kindle Fire HD and a free place at the ICE BIM conference 2014.

The results will illustrate the depth of awareness on BIM through a green, yellow and red heat graphic, which is designed to demonstrate the sector’s readiness for implementing Level 2 BIM by 2016 - in line with government targets.

BIM is a structured process of managing information before, during and after the construction of built assets.

At its heart are computer-generated models connecting all graphical and tabular information about the design, construction and operation of the asset.

If exploited correctly, the system can lead to significant efficiencies and improved delivery of client ‘value’ in construction and, in particular, cost saving.
