Volunteers sought for BIM group

6 Oct 14 The Construction Industry Council (CIC) is seeking young professionals from across the industry to join its BIM2050 Group.

The BIM2050 Group was established by CIC in September 2012 and is chaired by David Philp, who also leads the government’s BIM Task Group.

Over the past two years the group has researched the potential of BIM and organised events. Last month it published Built Environment 2050: A Report on our Digital Future.

But after two years the membership of the group is being refreshed and new recruits are being invited to apply.

In a letter to the out-going group members, CIC chief executive Graham Watts said: “Over the past two years you have produced some very valuable work and I would like to place on record, CIC’s thanks to each and every one of you for raising and creating extremely useful debate about the future challenges facing our industry and the exciting opportunities that lie ahead. The time has now come however, to refresh the group’s membership, in order to allow as many young professionals as possible, the opportunity to make their views heard.”
