In response CE South West and ARCOM, ICE, RIBA, UWE and CIOB organised a successful  seminar designed to promote a deeper understanding of the impacts of BIM on your businesses and supply chain organisations.Delegates had the opportunity to voice their views on how a BIM may affect organisation and the preparation for smooth progression towards BIM adoption and use.
