The government's construction strategy requires construction projects for central government to implement level 2 building information modelling as a minimum by 2016. Since it was published, a number of specifications, plans and processes have been released. Government has been involved in their production through being part of steering groups and explaining what they, as construction clients and occupiers of a huge number of built assets, need from the industry. Department projects have also been used to trial new methods and provide feedback from both the client's and the project team's point of view. The government's involvement has resulted in a coordinated response from an industry that is traditionally very fragmented and introduced a real impetus for changing the way the construction industry works and embracing digital technology.
