The CIOB joins the UK BIM Alliance Affiliate Programme


22nd June 2020

The UK BIM Alliance and the CIOB have announced a formal affiliation between the two organisations.

A membership organisation, the CIOB has a Royal Charter to promote the science and practice of building and construction for the benefit of society. CIOB members work worldwide in the development, conservation, and improvement of the built environment. The UK BIM Alliance aims to ensure that BIM becomes business as usual whilst transforming and future-proofing the way industry works. By working together, the two bodies want to strengthen industry improvement and enable a better performing built environment.

Caroline Gumble, CIOB Chief Executive, said: “The digitalisation agenda is crucial to the better use and understanding of data and information across construction and the built environment. We look forward to actively working with the UKBIM Alliance in ensuring that this is both better understood and taken forward in collaboration across the industry, professions and trade associations.” 

Garry Fannon FCIOB, UK BIM Alliance Affiliates Leadership Team, said: “We are delighted to welcome the CIOB and its members as affiliates to the UKBIMA. This commitment is a positive step forward to improve communication and understanding between the Alliance and CIOB members, delivering support, clarity and consistency as the Construction Industry digitally transforms.”

The Affiliate programme aims to bring together the professional institutions, trade organisations and any other industry organisations to provide a consistent message and coordinated approach to digital transformation, working across silos for a shared objective.
