Media Release: BRE urge Scottish sector to get BIM-ready


LEANNE McMillan, Sustainable Development and Accreditation director at BRE Scotland, is set to address delegates at ScotBuild 2016, which gets underway today (Wed 23 Nov 2016) at the SECC in Glasgow.

During her seminar tomorrow (attendance of which will contribute towards delegates’ Continuous Professional Development requirement), McMillan will highlight current legislation and key drivers for integrating sustainability in construction projects within the Scottish sector and outline the best ways for this to be achieved.

In her capacity as BRE Academy’s education and training offering for Scotland, Wales, Ireland and at BRE’s National Solar Centre, McMillan will also take the opportunity to highlight the forthcoming April BIM deadline and outline the various training options available from BRE to companies and individuals, in advance of the new BIM requirement.

BRE Academy in Scotland offers both classroom and online BIM training – as well as working with Scottish university partners in BIM accrediting new graduates – and McMillan notes: “With over 4,000 individuals already having achieved Level 2 BIM accreditation, we are now the UK’s most experienced provider of BIM training.

“However, to date, only a small percentage of those undertaking training have been from Scotland.

“From April 2017, the new BIM regulations become mandatory in Scotland for all public sector contracts above the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) threshold of £4.32 million, which will have a significant impact on our built environment.

“With this deadline in mind, it is vital that Scottish companies and individuals make the necessary arrangements to achieve BIM accreditation now.”
