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.
