The Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) has joined the UK BIM Alliance affiliate program. The BMF represents the interests of builders’ merchants, plumbing, heating, roofing, decorative, and timber merchants in the UK and Ireland. Its 751 members have combined sales of £38bn and employ more than 180,000 people.

The underlying aim of the UK BIM Alliance affiliate program is to bring together professional institutions, trade associations, and any other industry organizations. It will help provide a consistent message of a coordinated approach to digital transformation and working across silos to a shared objective.

BIM+ quoted Dave Bate, BMF digital project manager, as saying that the digitalization of the building supply chain will transform the way they do business. As online trading platforms enter the mainstream for builders’ merchants and building product manufacturers, the need for high quality, consistent and updatable digital data becomes ever more important.

The BMF looks forward to working with the UK BIM Alliance to ensure collaboration and consistency across the construction industry. Gary Morton, of the UK BIM Alliance affiliate team, said that they are delighted to welcome the BMF as an affiliate of the UK BIM Alliance.

Digital transformation is now more in focus than ever before with all members of the supply chain having a valuable part to play in making BIM Business as usual across their industry.
