Building Information Modeling (BIM)

The LI is promoting and enabling the uptake of BIM by its members alongside encouraging other aspects of competence in digital practice. So far this has consisted of running introductory and masterclass events, developing product data templates (PDTs), publishing newsletters, developing a new book BIM for Landscape and preparing the LI Digital Plan of Works (also known as Digital Plan of Works for Landscape). The latest initiative is to engage with arboriculturalists and tree officers by supporting the Digital Arboricultural group (previously known as BIM4Arb) as it encourages the arboricultural industry to better collaborate over BIM.
