High Speed Two (HS2) Ltd is committed to using Building Information Modelling (BIM) for electronic storage and use of digital data. This helps to deliver collaboration across the entire HS2 programme and optimising design for manufacturing as well as assembly opportunities.
In order to achieve this, the HS2 supply chain must be able to meet HS2’s BIM requirements. This study analyses any gap that may exist between HS2’s BIM requirements and the HS2 supply chain’s current capabilities, and makes recommendations for closing that gap.
HS2’s BIM requirements were outlined and presented at the HS2 Supply Chain Conference in November 2013.
