In March 2015 the new members of the BIM2050 group met for the first time. Each representing one of 14 CIC member-institutions, we had been inspired by the excellent work of the initial BIM2050 Group, including their Built Environment 2050 Report, and wanted to contribute ourselves to a positive future for our industry.
Current BIM 2050 Group Members are: Tom Bartley (ICE); Sarah Birchall (BSRIA); Bobby Chakravarthy (APS); Henry Fenby-Taylor (LI); Adam Golden (ICES); Will Hackney (CIOB); David Knight (IStructE); Alex Lubbock (CIOB); Alex MacLaren (RIBA); Mac Muzvimwe (RICS); Charlie Murray (CIBSE); Daniel Rossiter (BRE); Neil Thompson (CIOB) (Chair); Ryan Tennyson (CIAT) and Dwight Wilson (CIBSE).
The terms of reference for the BIM2050 group are:
To improve image and efficiency of the construction industry.
Promote shared knowledge and be an active forum for like minded industry professionals to collaborate.
Develop and review strategic scenarios for the future of the construction industry.
Offer unique perspectives and critical thought leadership to challenge the construction industry.
Disseminate information to help positively shape the future of the construction industry.
To take a wide view of the industry and research what an interdisciplinary scope of work may look like as technology develops.
With these terms of reference in mind the group has made a start on concentrating on two streams: TECHNOLOGY and CULTURE : across five key areas.
- Market Structure
The group is also closely linked to the 2050 sustainability group and considers sustainability central to the success of BIM2050.
