The 2050 Group has already met informally and decided that their priorities will be education and skills, developing a culture of integration and exploiting new technologies.
Cabinet Office Parliamentary Secretary Chloe Smith said: “We are taking great strides to make Government construction faster, cheaper and more innovative.
“We have already saved £179m for the taxpayer by stripping out waste and are trail-blazing the use of digital technologies such as BIM, a pioneering UK-led ICT solution that shares building plans with multiple contractors working on a building project.
“It is imperative we pass the baton of reform to the next generation of engineers and architects and the BIM 2050 group will help do this – it provides young construction professionals with a voice to challenge existing ways of working and deliver better results for the public and UK plc.
“We are in a global race and there is a real opportunity for our BIM know-how to be used more at home as well as exporting our technology expertise.”
There are no age restrictions to BIM 2050 – to be eligible, participants must be actively involved in BIM and, ideally, a member of an institute.
BIM 2050 is one of a number of influential groups set up to encourage the greater understanding and use of digital technologies in the construction industry.
Other groups cover: Delivery Supply Chain, Retail, Infrastructure and SMEs with a wide membership drawn from industry and academia.
