Bristol’s attractiveness as a good place to set up and run a business is highlighted in the new edition of the Bristol Business Guide.
The guide gives details of over 5,000 Bristol companies and promotes the goods and services they provide. It also sets out the advantages Bristol has to offer to prospective national and international companies wishing to do business or invest in the city. Local construction companies are strongly featured.
UK BIM strategy has been launched. See the Constructing Excellence response to the strategy and the strategy download here is here: http://www.constructingexcellence.org.uk/news/article.jsp?id=11787. Adopting an industry-wide BIM process is likely to reveal a significant learning gap in many companies with people left wondering how to implement this into their own practice. 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.
