Aligning demand with supply of BIM skills

Abstract

Construction has been always regarded as fragmented and inefficient with low productivity. Construction digitalisation has emerged the last decade and promises to extinct the afore-mentioned persistent problems. Amidst this appetite for innovation and construction digitalisation, Building Information Modelling (BIM) both promises to modernise construction and creates new challenges. The post-Brexit reduction in immigration and the BIM-related mandates in governmentally-regulated projects suggest a potential gap in BIM-savvy personnel. This presentation will address these challenges by reflecting on necessary BIM-related skills (hard) and competences (soft) to ultimately inform decision-makers in construction.
