Great Article from Arup on BIM Legislation

In talking with my good friend David Philp, leader of the UK BIM Task Group ( , he of course tends to agree that the UK Government has done far more to further the cause of BIM as a nation wide effort than the US. 

Frankly, I couldn't agree more. 

Especially in regard to the approach, the collaborative nature of the engagement and ultimately the right amount of courage from leadership (in government no less!) to not only encourage teams to use BIM, but to ensure it's continued development and innovation cycles and highlight those case studies publicly.

Perhaps we can learn from our peers across "the pond," who may have lagged in the initial implementation of BIM, but have now flown right past the US as a nation wide effort to create efficiency, improve collaboration and deliver a more future-proof information set to construction consumers for life cycle use.
