Our Work

We know that structural changes to the economy happen of their own accord in some areas, but require a little elbow grease elsewhere. Our work aims to support local and national government, and community focused organisations to adopt digital processes. To empower decision makers and end-users of built assets about the opportunities for digital focussed policy.
The new economy is coming and the world is changing.

Global BIM Study

June 2016: dotBE published A Global Building Information Modelling (BIM) Study to allow the Scottish Futures Trust (SFT) to better understand Scotland’s position in the international area of BIM realisation, as well as providing policy and implementation recommendations.

Henry Fenby-Taylor, lead author of the report for .be, said “In preparing this work for SFT we were struck by the lack of international benchmarking opportunities for articulating BIM implementation. In discussion, we developed what we have called the ‘Ease of Integration Index’ (EOI Index), a new matric comparing Policy, Economic and Governance factors, to better explain the development of BIM policy and implementation in twelve countries across the world.”

When all parameters are taken into account, Scotland and the United Kingdom are placed third and fourth of the twelve countries studied, a tribute to the wide scope of BIM level 2 which covers a greater extent of the built environment lifecycle and thereby has more opportunity to add value. A key finding of the report is the need to unify the objectives of policy, SMEs and large businesses. The report concludes that it is essential to foster entrepreneurism, maintain continuous development of rigorous Quality Assurance procedures, and develop and invest in effective means of communication of lessons learned and best practice across, and outwith, industry.

BIM 2050 Report

This 2013 report, pblished by dotBE’s predecessor, BIM2050, was the result of the group’s research into what an interdisciplinary scope of work may look like as construction technology develops to BIM Level 3 and beyond, towards 2050. It provides an assessment of the current situation and makes proposals for future development. The focus of the report rests on three key areas – education and skills, technology and process and the culture of integration. It highlights the risks and challenges, and the opportunities and benefits that come with large scale innovation and game changing new technologies.
