BIM Level 2 UK Mandate

BIM Level 2 is now a requirement for all government construction projects in the United Kingdom.  That means it’s now your responsibility as a contractor to demonstrate that you are “BIM Level 2 Ready” by detailing the processes you will use to meet the project requirements and adhere to the new standards. 

The BIM Level 2 Basics

In a nutshell, BIM Level 2 defines what, when and how information should be created, shared and managed.  If you are just becoming familiar with BIM Level 2, our BIM Level 2 infographic will help you understand what the mandate consists of, what standards you need to meet, and everything else you need to know as you begin to think about BL2 compliance.

Understanding the Impacts

Once you’ve got the basics covered, you will probably need a little more direction, so be sure to check out our BIM Level 2 white paper.  As we find ourselves in the midst of a multi-year effort to reform the way in which the UK government procures construction, this paper summarizes the mandate and gives a solid direction on relevant standards and specifications.  It will also help you better understand how Autodesk solutions can help you comply with the mandate.

Getting Started with BIM Level 2

Now that you’re an expert on BIM Level 2 and ready to get started, you’ll want to attend our Webinar: Autodesk Solutions and BIM Level 2. Let our experts guide you through:

  • The 6 simple steps to implement BIM Level 2 projects.
  • How to respond to the UK BIM Level 2 requirements.
  • Configuring your existing Autodesk solutions to support the mandate and specifically BS 1192.4 (COBie) and PAS 1192.2 (Information Management).

Common Data Environment (CDE)

Compliance with Level 2 requires the construction industry to collaborate more efficiently as we use information technology to support the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of the government’s built assets. The use of collaborative 3D BIM processes will assist with a successful response to these mandates on all centrally funded public projects.
