Cambridge, UK, May 2nd 2023, (www.1spatial.com) 1Spatial, the global provider of geospatial software and solutions for strong data foundations and data governance, is delighted to join nima (formerly UK BIM Alliance) as a bronze patron, helping make information management across our built and managed assets business as usual.
nima’s vision is a thriving and sustainable built and natural environment transformed by exploiting purpose-driven data. As trusted advisors, they facilitate the implementation and integration of practical information management practices across our built and environmental infrastructure.
Their mission is to inspire, influence, connect and support everyone active in the built environment, and enable them to better manage information vital to the needs of our times.
As quoted by Dr Anne Kemp OBE, chair of nima:
“The UK has been hugely influential in the international adoption of BIM since the launch of the UK government’s drive for change in 2011. Setting a ‘BIM Mandate’ in April 2016 did much to stimulate people, process and technology change and to help build a standards-driven movement. And since 2016, the Alliance has also helped maintain momentum, by, for example, supporting development of the UK BIM Framework.
However, the debate has started to shift. It is no longer just about BIM – often seen as a technological change – but about wider industry information management challenges, including building safety, climate change, and delivering value across the life cycle of our built and managed assets.”
1Spatial want to support nima’s vision for a thriving and sustainable built and natural environment transformed by using data. 1Spatial embraces the philosophy – “with trusted data, great things happen”.
1Spatial facilitate the implementation and integration of practical information management practices across our built and environmental infrastructure. 1Spatial look forward to being part of the shift from BIM to addressing wider information management challenges, including building safety, climate change, and delivering value across the life cycle of our built and managed assets.
nima Vice Chair, Casey D Rutland says:
“With similar outlooks on our approach to the data and information management transformation of our industry, we’re grateful to now be supported by 1Spatial. For many years (B)IM and geospatial data discussions have been developed in isolation from one another and we’re looking forward to bringing together these communities with the expertise and experience of 1Spatial.”
Matthew White, Head of Built Environment, 1Spatial comments:
“1Spatial look forward to sharing our skills, knowledge, and experiences with nima and the wider nima ecosystem, championing the adoption of information management and digital twins for our built environment”.
