A membership organisation, the CIOB have a Royal Charter to promote the science and practice of building and construction for the benefit of society. Their members work worldwide in the development, conservation, and improvement of the built environment. The UK BIM Alliance aims to ensure BIM becomes business as usual whilst transforming and future proofing the way Industry work. By working together, we can only strengthen industry improvement and enable a better performing built environment.
Caroline Gumble, CIOB Chief Executive Officer, said: “The digitalisation agenda is crucial to the better use and understanding of data and information across construction and the built environment. The CIOB looks forward to actively working with the UKBIM Alliance in ensuring that this is both better understood and taken forward in collaboration across the industry, professions and trade associations.”
Garry Fannon FCIOB, UK BIM Alliance Affiliates Leadership Team, said: “We are delighted to welcome the CIOB and its members as affiliates to the UKBIMA. This commitment is a positive step forward to improve communication and understanding between the Alliance and CIOB members, delivering support, clarity and consistency as the Construction Industry digitally transforms.”
The Affiliate programme aims to bring together the professional institutions, trade organisations and any other industry organisations to provide a consistent message and coordinated approach to digital transformation, working across silos to a shared objective.
