This document summarises the case for government investment in the development of information standards, tools and skills to enable a greater economic and social return from how central and local government expenditure is invested in UK infrastructure.
In 2015 the government set out its visionary plan for a Digital Built Britain. By digitising the entire lifecycle of the UK’s built assets it will reduce whole-life costs and carbon while ensuring availability and resilience of infrastructure. To enable the programme, a £15m delivery partnership was formed between Innovate UK and the Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) to focus on:
- British standards and support for building information modelling (BIM) Level 2;
- increased international trade opportunities for UK companies;
- development of BIM Level 3 programme;
- cyber security;
- private sector investment and engagement; and
- early adopter projects focusing on BIM Level 3A and manufacturing technologies.
Such an investment enables improvement in how the UK’s infrastructure is planned, designed, constructed, managed and operated, delivering more output, at lower cost and with a greater level of resilience. This proposal is presented as a Green Book business case, which sets out in 5 ‘cases’ the strategic, economic, financial, commercial and management rationale for action, and sets out a range of options by which the required outcome might be achieved.
