UK & US collaboration

A memorandum of understanding (MoU) has been announced today between representatives for the United Kingdom and the United States of America, cementing a pledge to work together on the development of the US National Building Information Management (BIM) Program.

Marking the next step in a two-year collaboration, the MoU will see the National Institute of Building Sciences work with experts from the UK’s Centre for Digital Built Britain (CDBB) on the development of a National BIM Program for the US, supporting international alignment on technical standards for the built environment. The US-UK collaboration has been enabled through the support of the UK’s Construction Innovation Hub.

The US National BIM Program will foster a productive and more collaborative international digital construction sector for the public good, facilitating innovation to drive increased value and be an engine for long-term sustainable growth.
