Is technology available to deliver BIM Level 2 or Level 3 today?

A few weeks ago I attended a presentation where the speaker representing the UK BIM TASK Group suggested technology wasn’t available today to delivery BIM Level 3 because the Task Group hasn’t yet defined its requirements; therefore products with this capability don’t exist.



BIM Organisation Struggles

Many organisations will struggle to implement Level 2 in the short and mid-term and long term Level 3 for a variety of reasons in no particular order:

  • No need to change current processes to manage data
  • Fear of the new, unknown and change
  • Management and workforce inertia
  • Lack of data management knowledge, skills and resources
  • BIM scepticism  – it’s a fad
  • Capturing BIM data is a cost which we aren’t being paid for
  • Failing to see data is a valuable commodity which can generate higher fees
  • Investing only when contractually forced too
  • Concerns over IP ownership and the liabilities of sharing graphical data working in federated models


It’s really NOT because the technology aka software and services don’t exist, they do!
