FLASH Programme

FLASH BIM Programme

FLASH ProgrammeThe FLASH Programme aims to help SMEs working in construction and built environment industries to seize the commercial opportunities arising from the move towards

The FLASH BIM Workshop Programme

The UK Government has stated its intention to make BIM mandatory on all government construction contracts by 2016.

What does this mean in practice? How will it change the way we work? What is BIM and what will it mean for your company?

The BIM Workshop Programme is designed specifically for cross-industry practitioners – clients, contractors, architects, architectural technologists, engineers, building services engineers, surveyors, manufacturers and facilities managers.
Led by industry experts and offering impartial advice independent of any software provider.

This FREE workshop programme is co-ordinated by the Open BIM Network, the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and the Institute for Sustainability.
