The National BIM Council (NBC) is a national body to support the advancement of digital in the construction sector. NBC was formed as a recommendation of the Enterprise Ireland 2014 National BIM Forum and is a key measure in fulfilling the Government’s national ‘Construction 2020’ strategy.
The inaugural meeting of NBC was convened by its chair Caroline Spillane, Director General of professional body Engineers Ireland. Welcoming the council, she said:
The first national survey (October 2015) to benchmark the level of Building Information Modelling (BIM) adoption across the Architects, Engineers, and Contractors (AEC) of Ireland revealed that 67% of the industry sample possessed confidence in their skills and knowledge to deliver BIM. While only 6% reported no confidence the remaining 27% reported a general knowledge of BIM and a gradual improvement in BIM skills.75% of the sample reported an increase in demand for BIM in Ireland. The research was conducted by Construction IT Alliance and Enterprise Ireland (copy available upon request).
