NHF and UK BIM Alliance partner to launch BIM guidance for housing associations

Members of the National Housing Federation (NHF) and UK BIM Alliance are collaborating on a joint project to help housing associations implement digital asset management. The two organizations have launched an introductory brochure, ‘BIM 4 Housing Associations: Asset Management in the 21st Century’.

The project team is led by Jack Ostrofsky, head of quality and design at Southern Housing Group, and funded by A2 Dominion, Notting Hill Genesis, Peabody, Optivo and Southern Housing Group – all members of G15, the group of London’s largest housing associations that own or manage more than 600,000 homes.

The guide will cover the business case for BIM for Housing Associations, including examples of projects in action, the benefits of applying BIM processes to existing buildings, exemplar asset information requirements for asset management, exemplar exchange information requirements for development projects and advice on the procurement process and appointment of relevant professionals.
