FPS embraces BIM

17 Apr 13 The Federation of Piling Specialists (FPS) has set up a working group to help its members embrace Building Information Modelling (BIM) .

The FPS BIM group will establish a set of standard formats for information that can be used by both members and their clients to improve the processes and interoperability of BIM systems and software. Mark Pennington, Chairman of the FPS Technical Committee, said “BIM is a transformative industry technology. FPS members are at different stages on their BIM journey, and the BIM working group aims to provide guidance and examples to members, clients and the supply chain of the benefits and advantages that can be realised adopting BIM.” The group will bring together members with and without direct BIM experience to develop a joint framework and schedule of guidance, as well start the process of compiling a basic library of images and associated data for use by both members and members’ clients. Pennington added: “The importance and value of BIM cannot be underestimated and the FPS is committed to helping its members adopt this new technology and take advantage of the benefits it brings.”
