With the government-mandated 2016 deadline for BIM level 2 upon us there is a need for everyone in the built environment to embrace the advantages of BIM-enabled working. Clients are not often confident to play their allotted role and must understand what is required of them and how best to utilise BIM for their own benefit. This publication provides an authoritative introduction to what BIM means in real terms for clients and will enable:
- Understanding of the strategic value of BIM for clients and how it changes their role;
- Seeing through case studies how typical clients are experiencing using BIM;
- Setting up a project on a BIM-using basis;
- Controlling of the design and construction stages with the benefit of data;
- Receiving and operating both real and virtual assets;
- Learning where BIM is going next.
A must-have for public and private clients of all sorts – whether occasional or regular, facility managers, asset managers or developers - as well as client advisors, architects, project managers, contractors and others working on their behalf.

Don Ward, Chief Executive, Constructing Excellence (incorporating the Construction Clients Group)
We commend this book to clients of all shapes and sizes: those with large repeat programmes as well as those considering the need for a one-off construction project, and all those in industry supply chains – particularly those directly able to influence clients’ decisions. Its lessons will enable the industry to deliver better value for money for its clients by finally delivering on integration and collaboration.
Terry Stocks, Director, UK Head of Public Sector and Education, Faithful+Gould
Richard’s book is a timely aid to clients, whether they are using BIM or intend to use BIM. It shares practice and experience from key industry clients and provides a ‘how to’ guide, which maintains a balanced approach on the effort required and the benefits that are achievable.
