More Time to Shine

Industry & Regulatory News, Real Estate
RICS has announced a deadline extension for entries to the 2017 BIM4SME Awards.

Those in the building community who are delivering smarter, more creative and sustainable buildings, utilising the latest BIM (Building Information Modelling) technology are being given more time to gain industry recognition for their talent and expertise, following the deadline extension for the 2017 RICS BIM4SME Awards, which are free to enter.


The decision to extend the deadline to enter the annual RICS BIM4SME Awards, from 26 May to 7 August, comes after the RICS was inundated with nominations for its annual RICS Awards, which take place throughout April–June in each UK region, from projects that have successfully used BIM to enhance their scheme.


RICS Awards Manager, Carolyn Robins, says:

"The RICS BIM4SME Awards are still relatively new to the industry, so it’s our hope that extending the deadline will give us more time to raise awareness of the awards and the categories to enter at leading industry events too, such as the annual RICS BIM Conference in London on 6 June."


About the BIM4SME Awards

The RICS — in collaboration with BIM4SME — established the RICS BIM4SME Awards three years ago in a bid to recognise the SMEs at the forefront of delivering successful BIM projects and initiatives, whilst promoting best practice and the importance of SMEs to the adoption of BIM.

There are 10 categories to enter:

  • Best use of BIM for Construction Sequencing
  • Best use of BIM for use of Embedded Data
  • Best use of BIM for Health & Safety
  • Best use of BIM for Costing and Material Take-off
  • Best Embedment of BIM into Contracts
  • Best Virtual Reality BIM
  • Best use of BIM for Sustainability
  • Best use of BIM to enhance Model Coordination
  • Best BIM project for Subcontractor Engagement
  • Best overall BIM Project


The 2017 RICS BIM4SME Awards will be announced at a ceremony on 12 September in London.
