There are a number of useful resources available that complement the implementation of BIM. The Information Management Assignment Matrix ensures that the tasks required to implement BIM are allocated to the right parties.

It also includes learning outcomes to allow organisations to support the delivery of BIM training.


nima (formerly the UK BIM Alliance) is a fundamental element of the Framework and Glider is proud to be both active members and patrons, supporting the digital transformation of our industry.

The UK BIM Framework has played a crucial role in driving BIM adoption in the construction industry. It promotes collaboration among stakeholders, and delivering projects more efficiently and sustainably. It has become a model for other countries seeking to implement BIM standards and processes in their own construction sectors.
