Council for Aluminium in Building

CAB Joins the BIM Alliance

The Council for Aluminium in Building (CAB) is delighted to announce a formal affiliation with the UK BIM Alliance. BIM has been central to the continuing digital transformation of the built environment in the UK, whilst CAB Members are at different stages of implementing BIM, we need to continue explaining the benefits of BIM to all decision makers and ensure that each organisation that implement’s BIM, has its own “BIM Champion” in place.

The UK BIM Alliance, launched in October 2016 is a cross-industry alliance initially formed to drive leadership around implementation of BIM Level 2. The purpose of the Alliance is to lead the industry-wide drive for awareness, education and adoption of BIM principles and realise its universal benefits. The alliance will provide a common and clear point of reference for built environment companies of all disciplines, with a view to enabling and supporting their BIM journeys.

Andy Boutle, UK BIM Alliance Engagement Co-Lead “We are really pleased to welcome CAB into the affiliate programme, trade associations with wide reaching membership across the supply chain are exactly what we need to help broaden the audience and drive the information management agenda.”

CAB look forward to working with the UK BIM Alliance to continue to inform and assist our membership in the digital transformation journey.

The Association continually supports the wider industry with technical support across the aluminium fenestration supply chain and staff are on hand at the CAB offices to answer any questions. Information is regularly updated on the CAB website at www.c-a-b.org.uk.
