Government’s first BIM project moves ahead

The first adopter ‘pilot’ Government project for which BIM (building information modelling) has been utilised at tender has Interserve selected as preferred bidder. BIM will also be fully employed at contract stage. The project for the Ministry of Justice comprises a new 3-storey houseblock for remand and convicted juveniles, and an education facility at HMYOI Cookham Wood, part of the Rochester cluster of prisons.

HMYOI Cookham Wood is also the first ‘pilot Government project to use a project bank account to ensure efficiency of payments through to the supply chain and SMEs.

Managing director of Interserve Building Ian Renhard commented: ‘We are proud to be supporting the Ministry of Justice in leading the way on BIM, which reflects the importance of this Government initiative. This intelligent approach to delivery will bring many benefits for our clients not just during design and construction, but also into the long-term operation and management of these new facilities.’
